Q – My husband and I decided, well more I decided and I let him know, that we will, in the next 36 months, be taking long weekend vacations instead of longer trips abroad. After that, we’ll return to our travel addiction but, for now, we want to cut the travel budget a bit. For a long weekend, are there certain days we should be traveling rather than others?
A – Actually we do have a rule of sorts for long weekends. Try to depart on Saturday instead of Thursday or Friday and try to return on a Tuesday or Wednesday instead of Monday. Days to avoid, in order of level of price difficulty, are Friday, Sunday, and Monday.
