It’s been a busy week in the world of travel and particularly in regards to points and miles. The Daily Getaways sales are happening, well daily. Hotels are launching their promos for the next few months and a huge announcement from Marriott and SPG about the future of their programs is imminent.
Here’s what else happened this week that caught my eye:

When you travel out of the country (or even within your own country, honestly), you sometimes just want to know the basics of where you are. You can spend probably too much money on a hop on hop off bus, but oftentimes there’s a free or at least relatively cheap option – a guided walking tour.

It’s that time of year again! Just as car rental companies offer dirt cheap $4.99-a-day rentals to get cars into Florida in the fall, they offer really nice prices on rentals to get them FROM Florida to lots of other places in the spring. So if you need to drive one-way from the Sunshine State to somewhere else in the U.S.A. during the next few months, now is the perfect time to make a reservation!

In the weeks and months after Labor Day, when the weather starts cooling down in the northeast, vacations to Florida, which stays comparatively warm throughout the winter, start to increase. To keep up with the demand of cars in the Sunshine State, car rental companies have to move a bunch of their autos down to the major cities in Florida, and it’s much more cost effective to have their customers do the transporting that to put them on rail cars and have them shipped down.

Going to Walt Disney World or Universal Studios Florida is expensive. Airline prices are high (although you can look for cheaper prices if you check out this post), park tickets run over $100 per person per day (but you may get some small legitimate discounts through the links on this page), hotels are quite a bit of money (check out the hints on this page for some better prices), food costs a lot, and that’s all before you even think of souvenirs. If you intend to stay on Disney property for your entire trip, you can travel around for free, between Disney’s Magical Express transporting you between the airport and your Disney hotel, and then Disney’s onsite transportation system of buses, monorails and boats to get you to and from the parks and other Disney-run areas. And if you stay on Universal property, you have use of buses, boats and walkways to and from the parks, once you get onto property. But if you’re staying off site, or want to venture out to, say, another theme park, or I-Drive or the outlet malls, you’re looking at even more expense with the use of a taxi, Uber, rental car, etc., right? Well, not necessarily. There’s one more option that’s cheaper than all of those…
