Making travel plans on a budget

Just because you are pinching pennies does not mean you cannot afford a vacation. Check out a brand new bargain travel guide - just released this week.

TripAdvisor compiles more than 15-million consumer reviews into one manual for cheap travel.

It includes its Top 10 Bets for inexpensive destinations: One is an exotic getaway, where the hotel stay will cost as little as $28 a night. The new guide also has a list of the Top 10 Free US attractions.

TripAdvisor also has tips on how to spend less.

It advises travelers to do a number of things in advance: Like download tokens, coupons, and specials, buy visitor cards or transit passes.

And if you are traveling overseas, TripAdvisor says shop for currency before you leave.
