7 Summer Travel Tips That Will Save You Money
Our family loves to travel, with a family of ten you can imagine how expensive it can be to cover hotel, airfare or food costs, let alone paying to see our destination’s local attractions. That’s why I want to share some of the ways we save money when we travel. Here are 7 ways we do just that:
Taking a road trip saves you money on airfare, even with the high gas prices. Plus driving enables you to see extra sights along the way.
If you have a preferred card for a hotel chain, you can save points to use towards your summer travel adventures.
You can save money on food by staying at hotels with complimentary breakfast, by purchasing food at a local grocery store, by bringing a crockpot or staying at a hotel with a kitchen. This saves on expensive meals out at restaurants.
Did you know that Tuesday nights are the best time to find airfare deals? According to a recent article on Yahoo, this is when they recommended purchasing airline tickets because airlines post their deals. Such deals are usually only good for a short time unless customer service tells you otherwise.
If possible, choose to visit places in the off-season when attraction tickets and hotels provide discounted prices.
When looking for places to visit, look for free events first to save on pricey attraction tickets.
Many hotels and rental car places offer bundle packages that save money. Area attractions will often put together package bundles that provide savings on attending three events instead of each one separately.
Use your computer and phone to your advantage when planning your next trip because these 7 summer travel tips will save you money, how much will depend on your research and planning.
