Default new forum suggestion

Given the current economic times - I think a specific forum on ways to save money on vacation or travel on a budget would be appreciated by many familes.

I totally agree - I think that in any economic climate there are going to be those who are on a tight budget and would appreciate discussion of tips, tricks, deals etc.

We travel with our grandchildren and would appreciate a forum devoted to "intergenerational" or grandparent/child travel.

Wow, I like all three of those ideas. Maybe somehow incorporate hotels/motels that sleep more then 4 people to a room - especially without spending a small fortune.

Adding to the grandparent idea - maybe a sticky for needed documentation. Actually i guess that could be any section.

I don't know if anyone has mentioned this yet, but travel with 5 or 6 can be tough. Perhaps a section on that - like hotels that let you have larger numbers, or cruise lines/ships that can take five to a room or have good adjoining rooms.

Default Travel with over 4

I agree with A & J. Give us a forum that shows us where to find accommodations for more than 4...or tips on sneaking extras in. As if anyone here would do such a thing

There's now a forum for families of 5+. I think the Grandparents traveling with grandkids is a great idea too.

Default Transportation forum

I would love to see a forum dedicated to car rentals, air travel, and other modes of transportation. We can share new current codes and deals.
