I am planning a trip right now and searched and searched for discounts, but I am not finding any for where we are planning to go. I have never used a travel agent, not sure if they would be able to save me money or now, guess it wouldn't hurt to check into it. Right now the bed and breakfast I am thinking of is $150/night. And we'll probably stay two nights. So that takes up almost all of our budget for the trip.
Let us know where/when you're going (if you're comfortable with that) and we can help you. I enjoy searching for travel deals. Are you set on a bed and breakfast? I find it's easier to look for 4-star hotels on sites like Priceline, Hotwire or Hotels.com.
Are you flexible on your travel dates? That has probably saved us the most, especially if airfare is involved.
