Travel Guide Info

A vacation after a long period of work and school is what everybody longs for, and a trip to somewhere interesting is what they desire for. However, travel and vacation is becoming more and more expensive day by day, which creates the need for travelers to cut down their expenditure whilst holidaying. Explained below are 10 common (simple) tips that would help save those travel dollars
  1. Take your own food and drinks: This would seem a little silly; however, the savings could be huge. For instance, a sandwich prepared at home could be much tastier and cheaper compared to those offered for sale at hotels and restaurants. Similarly, a can or bottle of coke would cost almost twice as much had you bought it from a supermarket. This would help you avoid instances of premium pricing.
  2. If the first point seems impossible, try this one. Have breakfast where kids could eat free and split meals. Small children eat too little but at regular intervals. Some restaurants that are children-friendly accommodate special requests for extra plates and savings on this could be huge, especially for those families with two or more kids.
  3. Have your own refillable water bottles: This too could save you a considerable amount since a typical family would spend over $20 a day buying mineral water. Why do have to spend on water if you can get your own water bottles refilled for free at your hotel or water fountains?
  4. Rent a car: This would be much cheaper compared to the airport shuttle service. Similarly, renting a car would provide for more convenience and flexibility. If you intend to drive to your destination, renting a car would be a better alternative rather than taking your own vehicle, since you will not incur those potential costs of wear and tear, had you taken your own vehicle for the trip. In addition, you could take advantage of related coupons and offers for further savings.
  5. Take advantage of offers and coupons: If you come across offers and coupons, it doesn’t matter whether it is for food, lodging or attractions, just simply make use of them. The savings could be enormous. You could find coupons and offers in local newspapers, local stores, hotels, motels and even online.
  6. Do not forget to bring your own stroller since you could easily save $7 to $10 a day at some of the attractions in your visit.
  7. Make your own reservations: This would help reduce potential expenditure. By making your own reservations, you are assured that your particular needs are satisfied and making those reservations online would earn you additional discounts.
  8. Make use of multi-day passes at the attractions. This could prove useful since the passes could be used at anytime of the day.
  9. Spend the day away from the major attractions: A day at the beach or at a local playground would be cheaper than and as much fun as visiting those attractions. Make use of every opportunity that is provided for free, such as the hotel’s sports facilities and swimming pool.
  10. Give your children a set amount to spend. This would save your money from unnecessary expenditures, and the children knowing about this restriction would put the money to better and the best use.

By simply following these tips, you could save huge amounts of money, thus enabling you and your family to spend an additional night or two at the holidaying destination. Good luck with your trip!
