Good Books for Independent Travelers
While it’s tempting to spend hours clicking away on the Internet to find travel planning information, it’s often a lot more efficient to just pick up a few good books. There are dozens out there that will save you money on your trip, from heavily-researched guidebooks to wise advice from people who have been there and done that already. What is your time worth? (Okay, if the answer is “not much” then go to the library and find them!)
Below you will find the most recent titles from those who contributed special sections. If you are outside the U.S., paste the title into the alternative search boxes at the end.
