Ways to Keep Your Vacation Low Cost

Thinking about taking a family vacation this summer, but worried about breaking the bank? Here are a few ways to keep your vacation or weekend getaway affordable:

Travel Off-Season – This is a great way to keep your vacation low cost and save BIG! Not to mention, your vacation destination will most likely be a lot less crowded. Many accommodations and area activities often offer off-season rates and specials.

Inquire about Specials/Promotions When Booking Your Accommodations – Regardless of the season, the vacation rental company or hotel you’re booking with may have negotiation power for rate and/or other discounts (doesn’t hurt to ask, right?!) Always, be sure to check their website for any rental specials or discounts.

Local Research – Research free or inexpensive events or local activities going on in the area. Many vacation destinations offer inexpensive things to do that you might not know about. Explore the possibility of visiting nearby museums, hiking/biking, fishing, and location specific events. A great resource is your vacation rental company, the destination’s Chamber of Commerce website, and of course Google!

Mealtime – Eating out can add up very quickly, especially if you’re traveling in a large group. Plan your meals ahead for your stay and then grocery shop accordingly. If dining out is on the top of your list of to-do’s during your vacation, be sure to do your research on local restaurants and the specials they might be offering to keep cost down.
