“Extra’s” Mario Lopez caught up with CBS News Travel Editor Peter Greenberg to get the latest travel tips for those stranded by Superstorm Sandy.
Normal travel likely won’t resume until Sunday or Monday, so the sharks could be circling. Beware of scams, especially when it comes to rental cars, Greenberg said.
CBS News Travel Editor Peter Greenberg uncovers the best-kept travel secrets and says right now is the best time to snag a deal. Greenberg explained, "September and October especially, kids are back to school, rates drop precipitously and the weather's great. Why wouldn't you go?"
Peter recommends Colorado because "the Aspen trees are gorgeous as they turn yellow. It's not crowded, they have great deals and no skiers yet. You own it."
"Extra" Lifechanger and CBS News Travel Editor Peter Greenberg reveals how you can creatively travel and without taking out a second mortgage on your home.
Greenberg says a wise start to planning your travels is online. "Momondon.com searches for over 600 different websites to get you the best fare," he says.
Planning a trip at the right time of the year is also key. "If you can book a trip during September, you get the best weather and the best deals, and you get the best service," Greenberg advises.

Capt. Phillips and his crew are due to return to the states late Wednesday.
