Say so long to overpaying. This week, Travelocity and Yapta each found new ways to put money back in your pocket if a package price or airfare drops after you've booked a trip.
Readers are getting in on the action by sharing their favorite affordable hotels worldwide. Thanks to reader June Landrum, we're covering Paris's Hotel d'Albion, which has a lovely garden and is a short stroll from the Champs-Élysées. From $126.
Highlights on this Gate 1 guided tour include visits to the Vatican, the Colosseum, Pompeii, and the coastal town Amalfi.
