Trip Planning Mistake - Going Nuts Over a Deal

Be careful about buying discounted passes or tickets unless you really know you are going to use them. Before we left home, I almost bought a pass to use on public transportation in Venice. Good thing I didn’t. We managed to do what we wanted to do on the waterways with a 36-hour pass bought right at the vaporetto ticket booth – a much less expensive option. Just because something is a great deal – and it may truly be – it isn’t worth buying if you won’t use it or it blows your budget. Maybe staying at the Ritz for $325 per night at Tyson’s Corners, VA is a real deal but is it worth paying that when you can get everything you need at another hotel for $150 per night?
