Just a reminder for any readers who are in or around the Los Angeles area, I’ll be speaking on a panel at the  LA Times Travel Show this weekend at the LA Convention Center downtown.  Admission is $10 per day and you can buy tickets here.

The other people I’ll be on the panel with include Gabe Saglie, the founder of TravelZoo, and Johnny Jet, and we’ll be moderated by LA Times Travel Editor Catharine Hamm.

The topic will be More For Your Money: Budget Tips for Savvy Travelers and the best tips for traveling in a cash-conscious way. We’ll be speaking both days for about an hour starting at 11:15 am on the Destinations Stage.


Among other topics, we’ll be covering tips for saving money on airfare, hotels, car rentals and more; the best destinations for bargain-hunters; websites and other resources for finding budget travel options, including points; whether or not to use a travel agent; avoiding hidden or surprise fees; and plenty of other topics, so I’ll be thinking about all those things and I’m sure my fellow panelists will have tons of valuable insights to share with attendees.

As always, it means so much to me to have my readers at these events supporting me and asking great questions. I always learn so much from you and I love opportunities like this to meet you in person, so I hope to see many of you there!
