LEARN HOW TO SAVE BIG EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO BOOK AT THE LAST MINUTE, FLY IN THE HIGH SEASON, OR CAN'T STAY OVER A SATURDAY NIGHT. From the Foreword by Rudy Maxa, Host of Public Radio's Savvy Traveler. . . "Guys like Kelly and me spend entirely too much of our lives reading the small print at the bottom of airline ads and web sites. We really are genuinely interested in the nuances of airline pricing; our hearts leap when we find a new, low-cost carrier in Europe that no one on this side of the Atlantic has heard of.
Take advantage of this obsession. Buy this book. You'll not only validate Kelly's wretched life, but you'll save a lot of money in the future when you have to buy an airline ticket."
