Cheap sleeps in the British Isles and Spain: Family friendly (four can share a room with pull-out sofa for the cost of two), clean, well-managed: what's not to like about Europe's Travelodge chain (http://www.travelodge.co.uk/)? Their constant sales make them downright adorable in many traveler's minds, like the one that launches tomorrow morning. It will drop 5000 discounted rooms on the market for stays between Apr 21 and May 4. Prices are being slashed to just 15 GBP, an excellent rate, especially if you use one as a quad. Full information can be found at the Travelodge site.
Its not too late to ski: The pack is still deep, the powder fluffy, in Banff. But not many schusser know that so the the ultra-swank Fairmont is giving away free nights and free lift tickets to keep business steady. For the rest of this month, it will be charging $496 per person for four nights lodging and four days of skiing, a price that shaves off the cost of one day. For a place this cushy, and skiing this rad, its a bargain. To learn more, go to http://skibig3.com/
