Case study: saving money on travel

The Millionaire on Heels visits Europe

The MoH arrived back this week from an all-too-short, but well deserved European holiday.

My days of cramming into cattle class and backpackers’ hostels are long behind me.  So this post will not be about how to have a holiday on a shoestring, but how to save money and travel comfortably.

Here’s how I went about it.

Saving Money on Airfares

My favourite way to save money on airfares is to extend a work trip!  But when I need to purchase a ticket myself, I search around online.  I usually find that for international tickets, you can get a better deal on business class seats than through the airlines directly – usually at least $300 or so cheaper.
