Getaways at bargain prices

In recent years, air fares have been relatively cheap, but rising fuel prices and other factors are drying up the deals. Think about a cruise instead.A cruise can last just a few days out of Florida or New York, or consider Europe if you have more time. There is no bad season to visit London.

If Mexico is on your mind, be broad-minded. Cancun is famous, but other resorts down the coast like Cozumel or Costa Maya tend to be less crowded.

Disney Resorts, owned by the parent company of 6abc, are always popular, but less packed between now and spring break.

And always look for deals. Triple-A members, for example, get free North American travel guides from the club.
