  • When visiting new locations, look for free summer concerts, movies, art shows, festivals and more. Plus this gives you more of the local flavor of your destination while saving money.
  • Be flexible with your travel plans - offbeat vacation spots and weekday travel generally offer better travel deals.

  • Choose a hotel that offers free amenities and gives extra value added offers that makes your travel budget go further. Best Western provides free internet at every hotel in North America, plus features a free breakfast option at most locations. These simple amenities add up to significant savings over the course of any vacation.
  • Stretch your travel budget by taking advantage of summer promotions including offers for free gas, discounted rates and other special offers.
  • Take advantage of AAA and other membership programs. Best Western offers an exclusive program for AAA members that gives extra savings and bonus rewards. If you are already a member of AAA, you can join for free.
  • Whether driving or flying, pack simple snacks for your trip - you will save money and probably eat healthier.
  • Travel with reusable water bottles. Refill as you go. A family of four could easily spend $25 or more a day buying water.

When you visit Scotland you will originate lots of history, many mountains, and a land of lochs. Many castles, fortresses, and tower houses are sprinkled on the countryside. Edinburgh and Stirling have the status of having some of Europe's most striking strutures. All of the Scottish Castles will beguile the ingenuity.

The Highland Games will be occurring during the Luxury Singles Travel tour time and take place in many places in Scotland. Highland dancers and pipers and the colour and grandeur of the Scottish scenery which forms their array, Highland Games is a must on any visitor's Scotland itinerary. They usually comprise a programme of field and track events, piping and Highland dancing competitions and 'heavy events' like the tug-o-war, the hammer throw and tossing the caber.

Scotland is also known as the Home of Golf. Scotland has over 550 picturesque Golf courses. Scotland's prenominal Golf Ambassadors are Catriona Matthew, Steven O'Hara, and Sam Torrance.

One of the best tours that was offered this summer 2008 to Scotland was with Luxury Singles Travel. Included 13 whole days of exploring Scotland.
