SAVE BY LOOK­ING FOR LO­CAL DEALS

LO­CAL DEALS

When trav­el­ling over­seas, I al­ways check out web­sites scoo­pon.com or groupon.com in the coun­try that I am vis­it­ing.

Just like Aus­tralia, they have some fan­tas­tic deals on food, tours and ho­tels. You can save some se­ri­ous money es­pe­cially when trav­el­ling with ex­tended fam­ily.

They usu­ally ask for an ad­dress when sign­ing up and I just use my ho­tel ad­dress. I al­ways pay by PayPal and have even had a re­fund when the op­er­a­tor could not pro­vide the of­fered ser­vice in Las Ve­gas. DARRYL MUR­PHY

FLIGHT APP

When fly­ing through hec­tic air­ports, it can be tough to find your flight on the de­par­ture board.

Down­load the free app Fligh­tradar24 which gives live air traf­fic – just search up your flight and it will tell you where your plane is, the air­line, air­craft type, al­ti­tude, speed and it will tell you if it is com­ing in late from its pre­vi­ous des­ti­na­tion. MOR­GAN KLUG

DES­TI­NA­TION PRAGUE

Food is awe­some, beer is awe­some and pub­lic trans­port cheap. We rent an apart­ment in the sub­urbs – Zizkov (Prague 3) – and go to the lo­cal su­per­mar­ket. We live like queens on the Aus­tralian dol­lar. One of the best shows to go to is the La­terna Magika near the Na­tional The­atre. AGGIE LUCK
