Anyone travel without a credit card?
I'm guessing I'm not the only one on this board going sans plastic in an attempt to be frugal and/or because of debt, but what about making travel accommodations? I've just been informed I need to take a work trip to San Diego (I'll have to fly from San Francisco) at the end of this month and I have to front my own expenses and then be reimbursed later. The trip is a must so I can't waste energy being annoyed that its last minute or that I'm not made of money lol. Most of my travel has been via car and crashing with friends/family, so taking a flight and booking a hotel is a bit unfamiliar.
I did some browsing and it seems that its customary to just use your credit card to book airfare/hotel and while I understand the guarantee of payment those offer, there must be other options and I am just not looking in the right place. Any ideas? I'm also very interested in keeping costs low, so any general tips for that would be appreciated too.
