While in London for the Olympics, I paid attention to some money saving tips that would be applicable not just for trips during the Olympics, but for trips once the Olympics were over. My husband and I are actually returning early next year in an Envoy Suite using the US Airways off-peak awards for just 55,000 miles each (we got a 5K discount for having the US Airways card), so I wanted to be able to have some good ideas for when we make our return visit. I got several great ideas from many of you, so thanks for the advice!
If you are interested, here is the article I wrote on the topic for the Travel Channel’s blog entitled “London Sendoff: Tips to Save Money in London After the Games”.
Now I can’t wait to get back to London and visit some of the free attractions that we just didn’t have enough time to get to on this trip!
