Travel Tips

Enjoy these money saving tips that actually work.

Broaden your travel horizon without breaking the bank.

Free breakfast

Make sure the hotel you stay in provides a free continental breakfast every morning.  That's one free meal every day.

Fly mid-week

Tuesdays and Wednesdays are often the cheapest days to fly.  Try to make this work into your vacation schedule. 

Pack light

Pass on checking luggage.  Take the minimalist approach and pack only the essentials into your carry-on bag.

Travel overnight

Taking a long flight?  Schedule it overnight so you can sleep on the plane.  That's one less night to pay for in a hotel.  

Get rewarded

Take advantage of credit card rewards to score vacation and hotel deals

Off season

If possible, travel in the off-season.  Many times you can find lower prices on flights and hotel rooms, including resorts.

Lunch vs dinner

Make lunch your largest and fanciest meal.  Lunch is often significantly cheaper than dinner at restaurants. 

Trains, planes and automobiles

Utilize other forms of transit to get where you are going.  You may be able to save a lot of money by booking your flight into a cheaper airport, than taking a train or your car rental to your final destination 
Remember - always do your research and watch out for scams.  If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
