christmas-decorations-200It’s not too late to plan a quick trip to New York City for the holidays. In fact, a spur of the moment trip might be the best way to travel cheap.




Plan to go during the week. The weekends during the holiday season are busy and you’re not likely to find any deals on a Friday or Saturday night stay.  Check week-night rates at financial district hotels for particularly good rates – maybe not as convenient as staying midtown, but you can easily (and inexpensively) get around to the rest of the city by subway.

Last Minute Hotel Deals at – Check out’s last minute deals.  They have good deals available.

Express Deals at – With Priceline’s Express Deals, you don’t know which hotel you’re getting until it’s booked, and you can’t cancel or get a refund. But you do know the hotel’s neighborhood and star-rating.  And the deals are very good. So, if you’re committed to going and saving as much money as possible, the Express Deals are a good option. Plus, until December 24th you can save an extra 5% by using Coupon Code “HOLIDAY”



The least expensive entertainment is to spend your time visiting the many free holiday sights around the city. Check out NYC Cheap Travel’s Christmas 2013 page for information on things to see and do.  If you want to check out a show, there are ways to save money on that too.
