I’m in Switzerland right now, so it’s early, “ I apologized to the T-mobile agent for rushing her along with our call. “Oh wow, that must be beautiful, “ she gasped. “Yeah, but these days I’m really enjoying Argentina,” I replied. “You really get around, don’t you.

People are always amazed to hear that I’ve flown from Europe to South American for less than $300 dollars or spent an extended weekend in Morocco for 2 paying less than $200 all included. So since one of my life’s missions is to help people realize travel is firmly within grasp and only a Google away, here are some ways to take advantage of travel you can afford.

- Search early
- Use Google Flights
- Use Expedia App
- Sign-up for travel credit cards with benefits
- Choose frequently traveled destinations
- Use Airbnb and host to earn stay gift certificates
- Travel Off-Season
