20% EuroRail vs. Discount Airlines

I don’t know about you, but Drew and I have 3 mistake-fares coming up, all taking us to or through Europe. Somewhat accidentally, we are going to be spending the holidays in Europe. Family time still wins out as my favorite way to celebrate holidays but Vienna’s Christmas markets will be a good plan B I think.

Free $14 Hotels?

TopCashBack is a cash rebate site. Most of the time they give a percent of the room you booked, or whatever it is you bought, in cashback. It generally takes a while to post, like a month or so, but you should get the $14 for any booking on booking.com. Click to keep reading…
