Unique and Discounted Travel with Pauline Frommer and Ed Perkins
It’s always great to check in with old friends. Pauline Frommer, daughter of legendary travel veteran Arthur Frommer, joins us once again to tell us how we can break out of our travel rut and find the unique destinations we’ve always dreamed of. Next, Ed Perkins joins us to talk discounted airline tickets and purchasing airline miles from third parties. It’s a talk you surely don’t want to miss! Finally, we’ll be inviting you to two local events that are definitely worth your time!
Pauline specializes in getting more bang for your buck while out and about. Her philosophy is “spend less, see more,” and man, does she mean it. She’s already written excellent guides on traveling New York on a Budget and Picnicking across Paris, but today, she’ll be joining us to demonstrate how she manages to stumble across these unique travel destinations over and over again. With any luck, we’ll have you out of your travel rut and exploring new ground in no time! You can learn more about Pauline at www.frommers.com/pauline.
Some of you may remember Ed from a previous show, where he offered some great travel tips for all of us to use. Others may recall his days as editor of the Consumer Reports Travel Letter or his regular column at smartertravel.com. But whether you’ve run into Ed a time or two in the past or not, one things’ for certain: the man knows his stuff when it comes to discounted travel and airline miles. Today he joins us to share some of this knowledge, specifically with regard to business class travelers!

Last week, we featured a new service called GoMiles.com that we’re pretty big fans of. Unfortunately, the link didn’t quite make it onto the site in time. Special thanks to all the listeners who brought this to our attention! We’d like to welcome you to check out last weeks show, where we spoke with representatives from the company and passed on a little review of our own. For those of you already know how we feel about the service, go check them out at www.gomiles.com!
