I only do two things.  I use airline points I've accumulated throughout the year towards an airline ticket and I budget my total trip expenditure (including an airline ticket if not enough points).  Each month I put my trip expenditure funds in a vacation account.  This is easily done automatically from my online savings accounts.  When I go on vacation, then I buy my tickets and pay for my vacation when returning from this vacation fund.  Ready to start contributing to the next months.  So far I haven't over spent my account, but I haven't gone to Vegas yet either.  :-)

I use multiple ways.  A mileage credit card for flights, Travel during mid season, on the cusp between winter or summer.  I have a portion of my check direct deposit into a travel savings account.  When I can I try to book hotels with breakfast. And last of all look for deals

Basically the same way I save money for anything: I have our income checks direct deposited into a savings account and distribute funds from there.
