Q: I have a friend who lives in New York City and I would like to visit them but do not drive or work. Can you offer a few inexpensive ways for me to visit them?

A: Travelling always requires money. You need it to get there and you need it once you get there. Seeing that you're considering a trip to one of the more costliest cities in the United States, you most likely will run into difficulty when faced with the question, "What can I buy?" or better yet, "Who is going to pay for this?"

It's always nice to know friends are around who can help pick up the tab but you probably wouldn't want to be seen as taking advantage of their good will. If you are having a dilemma now on how to get there, perhaps you should consider visiting them at a later date. Having said that, here are a couple of ideas you might wish to explore.

For air travel, often there are discounts or fare savers available directly from the air carrier's web site such as Air Canada's popular Web Saver program.
