"When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money."

-- Susan Heller. 

This is probably one of my favorite travel quotes. I personally try to put all my spare cash into travel funds, and when I do travel I'm thrifty. 

However, the truth is that there are times when you're travelling when spending the little extra makes a HUGE difference. 

Just ask Reena Ganga of Wanderplex.com. Her article, When to break your travel budget, takes a good look at the experiences that are worth the extra money. 

Here's an excerpt:

"1. A cab from the airport after a super long flight. Sure you could take the subway, but if it’s going to take twice as long, require you to make a transfer while lugging all your bags, walk five blocks, and oh, it’s late and you’re knackered – it’s probably worth shelling out the extra money for the taxi."

What about you? What experiences or extras are you willing to stretch your travel budget for?
