    ORLANDO, Fla., April 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Express, Delta's
 (NYSE:   DAL) low-fare airline, offers tips to help travelers plan the best
 vacation within a budget and an opportunity to win the Ultimate Vacation to
 Orlando, FL.  Travelers can find the tips and enter the sweepstakes during
 April and May at flydlx.com .
     "Leisure travel has increased 60 percent in the last 20 years," said Robin
 Connolly, general manager-Delta Express.  "Don't miss out on the fun.  Delta
 Express offers simple tips for making travel planning easy and affordable for
 everyone."
     To plan a budget vacation, follow these simple travel tips from the travel
 industry experts at Delta Express:
 
     Tip #1:  Use the Internet.  Research shows that more than 59 million U.S.
 adults used the Internet for travel planning in 1999.  Hotel, airline and
 rental car reservations can be made online and oftentimes offer money-saving
 deals.  Surf the Web, check all the discount sites, such as priceline.com and
 lastminutetravel.com, and comparison shop for the best offers and prices.
 Travelers can also use the Internet to research the vacation destination.
 Visitors' centers and convention and visitors bureaus for most cities are
 online and can be located through most online search engines.  And most
 convention and visitors bureaus feature event schedules that list free
 entertainment opportunities, such as festivals and concerts, and/or special
 coupons and discount offers.  For example, the Orlando/Orange County
 Convention and Visitors Bureau offers the Magicard(R), which features up to
 $500 in savings, and the Palm Beach County Convention and Visitors Bureau
 offers coupons for up to $1000 in savings.  Both books can be ordered online
 at the organization's Web sites.
 
     Tip #2:  Plan ahead. Be it traveling with children, scheduling vacation
 time or finding the best deals, planning ahead is recommended for most people.
 For instance, travelers can discover hidden "value" season by researching the
 vacation destination.  For example, Florida businesses tends to discount many
 hotels during the warmer summer months.
     Also, when purchasing airline tickets, fares tend to be lower further in
 advance when more seats are available.  And don't forget to use the Internet.
 Check prices, schedules, special offers and look for time-saving alternatives,
 such as purchasing nonstop flights to avoid connections.
