There’s only one time of year when any post outranks my post on how to get your check-in fee back from RyanAir, and that’s late September . . .


Seems I’m not the only one who wants to know how to save serious cash while looking like a native at Germany’s biggest festival!O'fest 2008, courtesy of Carija Ihus

I’m headed there this weekend myself and will be sporting my homemade dirndl, but this post outlines where to find the best bargains on Trachten for the beerfest.

Are you headed to Munich this weekend? Leave a note in the comments and we could do a meetup! Before you get there, save money and time by reading my other posts on German travel:

Nomadic Matt — you’re welcome to come (and cross #29 off your life travel list), but it’s a long way from Thailand, isn’t it?

I wish that I were headed to Oktoberfest. I’ve been meaning to get back to Germany, and that would be a great excuse. Plus, how can you lose when you’re practically swimming in good food and beer?
