How to travel better, smarter and cheaper in 2023

Some travel tips are ageless. Go out of season when you can, mid-week if possible. Be prepared to take red-eye flights. Do not order room service. Use public transport.

The tips below are different. It is fitting for this strange time in history, with rampant inflation and a faltering pandemic recovery unpredictably, as most airlines, hotels and car rental companies are charging more than before 2020. There has thrills and insights waiting for travelers there, and we could use them. Here are some ideas for better, easier and cheaper travel in the coming year.

1. Take a ferry

Really, just about any ferry. The prices are usually ridiculously low, and in exchange you get the thrill of being on the water and the novelty of a new view of the skyline. Even if you’re prone to seasickness, most of them are quick and easy rides that probably won’t upset your stomach.
