The subtitle says it all: "How to travel world-wide for next to nothing." Air couriers accompany time-sensitive cargo shipped on regularly scheduled international flights, thus allowing the freight companies to get expedited customs clearance. In exchange, the courier gets a low-priced ticket. In some cases, the courier flies for free.
Monaghan gives detailed instructions on how to become an air courier and maximize your chances for a cheap ticket. The second half of the book contains a directory of virtually every courier company in the world, with contact information, routes and fares.
Includes destination and subject indexes.
