The Road to Big Savings

Save Money on Travel

Easy ways to save money when you're itching to get on the road—or into the air.

Skip those checked-bag fees

Many airlines charge $25 for your first checked bag and $35 for the second, but some credit card and frequent-flier programs let you check bags for free. With the Delta SkyMiles card from American Express, up to nine people on one reservation can each check a bag free of charge. As a Continental OnePass gold, silver, or platinum member, you can bring two bags free.

Let Twitter send you hot deals

Airfares and vacation-package rates change constantly, making Twitter a great way to learn about the latest sales. Sign up at airline and hotel sites for Twitter feeds of exclusive deals. United Airlines offers "Twares" deals; JetBlue touts its "Cheeps" every Tuesday. You can also follow travel pros to see what savings they’re tweeting about. For example, AARP The Magazine travel expert Peter Greenberg culls the best deals for you via his Twitter feed.

Don't just take our experts' words for it—we want to hear how you're cutting costs. E-mail us your best money-saving advice!
