Awesome Vacations on a Budget

Awesome Vacations on a Budget

Do you have a vacation on your bucket list that seems to be too expensive for your budget? Whether you’re debating on a trip to the beach, across the country or to explore a large city or the nation’s parks, follow these recommendations from the travel experts to ensure your trip is not only a huge success, but stays within your budget.

The first step is to set your budget and dates.  The more flexible you are with your dates, the better the greater the chances you’ll be able to take advantage of travel values. Determine your location. It’s often though that the least expensive way to go on vacation is to drive to your destination and set up a tent upon arrival. If camping isn’t your speed, there are plenty of low cost alternatives. Take advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and check out the terrific selection of properties, locations and rates available at Motel 6. Unless you’re an avid camper and already own camping equipment, the initial investment can be quite hefty.  If you’re heading to an urban area and plan on sight-seeing and exploring, travel by car might not be your least expensive option. While the cost of gas may be substantially less than airfare, consider the cost of daily parking. This can add up quickly. Many hotels in urban areas charge extra for parking.  Confirm this before you decide to drive. The alternative to driving is book a bus ticket. Gone are the days of the unseemly bus stations. In their place are first rate coach buses that pick up and drop off in the city center. Consider the options and flexibility offered by private bus companies.

Pack light and take comfortable shoes as you’ll most likely be doing a great deal of walking. Have a grand time on your vacation adventure. Chances are you’ll have saved enough on accommodations and transportation that you’ll truly be able to take advantage of most things offered at your destination!
