Travel. A reader writes, “My husband and I recent went on a week’s holiday (from our oily rag savings!) to the Pacific Islands. Our travel agent quoted $110 for travel insurance, but we booked the same cover online for $91. We also made savings by booking our accommodation online.

All up we saved over $200 by booking online.”
