Planes, trains, & automobiles

Transportation options for getting around on your next trip: Car rentals, no-frills airlines, short-term leases, ferries, campervans, cruises, and barges

This is the planes, trains, and automobiles section. It's devoted to how to rent a car, pick the right railpass, hop ferries to Greece (or wherever), connect far-flung cities cheaply by flying no-frills airlines, and charter sailboats to tour the Greek isles or Turkish coast (or hire a barge in France or England).
