Travel in 2016

Listen 00:48:43

Guests: Don George, Seth Kugel

With towering snow banks still surrounding us, how about turning your mind to an escape — a sunny beach, a charming village, a mountain retreat? Have you made your vacation plans for the year? This hour we’ll talk about far-flung foreign adventures and trips closer to home — and how to do it all without breaking the bank. Also, a look at whether or not low fuel prices will affect ticket prices and if trip insurance is worth it. Guest host Mary Cummings-Jordan talks with DON GEORGE, travel writer and editor for National Geographic Traveler magazine and SETH KUGEL, The New York Times’ “Frugal Traveler” columnist.
