For the budget conscious traveler an Italian vacation may seem far out of reach. But many people are surprised to find that visiting this destination may be well within the cards. One of the most expensive aspects of a vacation is usually the airfare and hotel. So what are the options available for those who want to enjoy Italy and save at the same time? Well for starters you may want to go on your vacation to Italy during the off season. This will mean that you will find cheaper airfares. There are great prices to be found for airfare especially if you plan to fly directly from a major international airport such as New York or London. All airfare rates drop dramatically after the summer. Hotel rates per night will also be more affordable. After the summer many hotels are recovering from the large numbers of people that came through their doors. You will find out that during your cheap Italy vacation most places are happy for customers that provide them with business during the off peak season. Service could be even better simply because there are fewer people to serve and focus on. The lines are also shorter for almost everything. Peak season is the summer months of June through August. So why not plan to go in September if you can? You will still enjoy all the sights and the remnants of great summer weather. For example Rome in July can go up to 92 degrees but may be 80 degrees in September. The advantage of going on your Italian Vacation during the off-peak season is that the crowds are not there, the weather is slightly cooler and Italy becomes more of itself. You can really experience Italy and its people if you go in the off season and you will save some money too. Not only are hotels and airfares cheaper in the off season but you will also find discounts available for guided tours and concerts. Another way to save on your cheap Italian vacation is to take public transportation whenever possible rather than a taxi. Of course this needs some planning in advance or you could spend numerous hours lost and wasting valuable time. But with an adventurous spirit and an Italian pocket dictionary in hand it can be done! Italy is well known for its extensive rail network. You can get a rail pass or buy tickets as you go. Either way this option will help you save if you are on a budget. Another great tip for a cheap Italy vacation is to forgo the hotel altogether. Rent a house or an apartment for a few days if you are in a group and you will save tremendously. This is especially true if you also factor in the presence of a kitchen that can allow you to make some of your meals rather than rely on dining out for every meal. Even if you have to stay at a hotel you should also consider fixing some simple meals such as sandwiches when you can especially if you come across a grocery store during your cheap Italian vacation.

About the Author

Melbourne-born Geoff McGeachin has spent much of his life shooting pictures for advertising, travel, theatre and feature films. His work has taken him all over the world including stints living in Los Angeles, New York and Hong Kong. He is now based in Sydney, where he teaches photography and writes.

His first novel, Fat, Fifty & F***ed!, won the inaugural Australian Popular Fiction Competition and was published by Penguin in August 2004. Described by the Sunday Tasmanian as 'one of the most exhilarating debut novels in many moons . . . wildly imaginative, irreverent, bitingly funny, beautifully paced and populated by the sort of characters we'd all love to know', it continues to entertain and amuse Australian and international readers.

Geoff followed this up in 2006 with the hilarious adventure thriller D-E-D DEAD!, which introduced Alby Murdoch – Australian secret agent and international photographer – a man with a taste for good coffee, fine food and interesting women and described by the Sunday Age as 'a genuine action hero, with a truly Australian irreverence'. D-E-D DEAD! was published by Penguin/Viking and nominated for a Ned Kelly Award in 2006.

Sensitive New Age Spy, the second Alby story, was published by Penguin in 2007 and was also nominated for a Ned Kelly Award. According to GQ Magazine, Sensitive New Age Spy 'crackles with picaresque players and absurd wit. A chuckle-by-the-pool read.'

Dead and Kicking, the third book in the Alby Murdoch trilogy, was published to excellent reviews in January 2009. The Age's Cameron Woodhead wrote: 'McGeachin channels the ghost of Ian Fleming to entertaining effect in this high-octane adventure with a camp, comic gloss.' The Sunday Tasmanian said: 'McGeachin has a real flair for action-adventure writing. His pacing is excellent, his ever-changing scene locations are richly detailed and his plotting is intricate without being cumbersome. Throw in his inimitable sense of humour and you have a sensational combination.'

His fifth novel, The Diggers Rest Hotel, is a crime story set in Albury-Wodonga, and it marks a change of direction for McGeachin. The hero is hard-boiled detective Charlie Berlin, an ex-bomber pilot and POW with a dark past. Published in June 2010 it was described by Christopher Bantick in the Weekly Times as '... a bottler of a book ... terrific in all respects', and the Hobart Mercury reviewing it as, '...a fiesty, beautifully researched thriller ... shot through with brilliant insights and great dialogue, fitfully lit by explosive flashbacks to battle in the air.'

The Diggers Rest Hotel won the Best Fiction category at the 2011 Ned Kelly Awards presented by the Australian Crime Writers Association and was also one of ten titles selected for the State Library of Victoria's 'Summer Reads Program' 2010/11.
