NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- If you're wrapping up plans on that summer vacation, we have a couple of ways for you to save money.
Let's start with flying: chose an airline with reasonable fees. We're talking those low-cost carriers, like Southwest. They don't charge anything to change your ticket or to check two pieces of luggage.
If your flight is international, don't get caught paying a foreign-currency fees. Travel experts suggest contacting your credit card company before you go, and asking to have the fees waived.

Also, make sure your cell phone is ready for travel! Try adding an international mobile data plan, or using wi-fi only instead of facing data roaming charges on your next bill.
Here's another one: make wi-fi part of your hotel search when booking. That way you get it for free.
And if you work for a big company or organization, find out if they have any special deals at that location that will save you money.
