I can’t tell you how many people I’ve met who’ve never been to New York City. Of course, some of the peopleCheap New York I’m talking about are from New Jersey and we’ll have to address their troubles in another article. But seriously, a lot of people avoid the city like the plague and one of the chief reasons is that it’s considered exhorbitantly expensive. I'm going to show you how the Big Apple can be downright cheap, if you know how to snag good deals.

It happens every time you try to book an international ticket. You shop around for the cheapest fare but the airlines hit you with the long layover penalty. “You want that cheap seat mister - Madridit’ll cost you a twelve hour layover in Madrid.” Sometimes they’ll intimidate you with a 10 hour layover in Amsterdam or Paris. You get the picture - you could end up spending an entire day staring at planes in London or Rome. If they’re really nasty, they might threaten you with a 14 hour layover in New York, in the middle of a snowstorm.

The idea of spending 12 monotonous hours in an international terminal waiting for your next flight is not everybody’s cup of tea. On the other hand, if you have time on your hands, a long layover in Madrid or Amsterdam or any other major European or American hub can be a bonus. What you save on the fare is more than enough to spend a lovely day being an accidental tourist in a charming European city.

Cheap National ParksFrom a reader in Arizona, "Can you help me? Last year was hard on my family moneywise. Each year we take a week vacation to Disney, Colorado, or the California coast. This year, money is tight and our plan is to skip the vacation and stay home. My husband wants to still go, but we definitely can't afford it. Looking for ideas for a cheaper vacation that's cooler than 110 in the summer. Thanks. J."

The cheapest way to roam the planet is to control your overhead expenses. If you break down the cost of an overseas vacation, airfare is the single largest expense. And one of the ways you can really extend your vacation dollar is to plan for  longer vacations. If you spend $900 on a round trip ticket to Europe for a nine-day trip – your daily overhead is $100. It’s actually a bit higher when you consider that it takes a day or two to get to your destination and recover from jet lag. Add another lost day to get packed and make the return trip and you’re left with six days of what I would consider quality travel days. That puts the daily overhead at $150.
