How to Save on Your Next Vacation

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

Although summer is coming to an end in certain parts of the country, others may enjoy year round great weather, and still others will "fly south" so to speak and seek out warmer territory- enjoying a Fall/Winter holiday away from the cold.
What if you don't have alot of money to travel, stay in hotels, etc...Here are some ways to cut back on traveller expenses-( and please feel free to add any of your own) :
- stay with relatives- but don't overstay your welcome
-enter "trip" contests- you never know...bookmark travel contests and enter as often as you can- you could be enjoying an all expense paid trip for a nice Fall/Winter getaway
- tent camp..although we aren't much into camping, not tenting anyhow, others may be
-pack your own cooler with grocery store snacks and other easy to fix quick meals- cheaper than take out, and if you happen to be staying in a hotel room, make sure you get on that offers a continental breakfast and has a microwave in your room.
-along with camping comes some cheap eats: fish,( if your lucky to catch it), and great past times that are easy on the pocketbook-hiking, reading, and just lazing around.
-travel with a few friends- if your travelling by car, everyone could share expenses. This also goes for renting a hotel room- you can rent a 1-2 bedroom condo/house and split the cost. This may be cheaper than the cost of a hotel room for the week.
-use any of your reward points- check balances to see if you have enough points for free gas, hotel , airfare or gas station snacks.
