When asking a question about cheapest way to do something good answers will often advise you too book stuff in advance.
This is great but quite often these are not the answers you're looking for for various reasons.
- You want to travel without a plan (like me) and just go where you please as things unfold.
- Something came up and you have to travel soon and you didn't foresee it in advance.
Because of this it's handy to be able to tag a question (as well as word it) to rule out in advance answers what might seem like obvious and unhelpful under the circumstances of the information you're looking for.
