Before you spend anything, “ABC’s The Lookout’s” team will do whatever it takes to get more out of your money.  Reports airing on Wednesday, June 12 include:

 

  • All-Inclusive Vacations – Correspondent Paula Faris, her husband and two children go undercover on vacation in Mexico to learn what to lookout for when booking that all-inclusive trip.    Also, from restaurants, oceanfront rooms, and room décor, an expert shows us how sometimes online photos can be deceiving.

 

  • Germs! – Heading out on vacation and worried about germs?  “ABC’s The Lookout’s” “germ team” joins Correspondent Nick Watt and a germaphobic mom and her family on the great American road trip to investigate where an average family encounters the most germs and what dangers they may pose.  Will it be the roller coaster handle?  The bathroom?  The dirty rag cleaning the restaurant table?  The kids’ hands?  The hotel bed cover or remote control?  The kids’ fun zone?  And was their vacation any germier than their home?

 

  • Airline Ticket Prices – Our bags are packed and we are heading to the airport to find out if and why you are paying more for your airplane ticket than the person sitting next to you.  Plus, Correspondent Linsey Davis asks experts: Are there really tricks to buying cheap tickets?
