Plan, Plan, and then Plan Some More
- The more you plan your trip and what you will be doing during your time the more fun you will have. Make sure to do a search for fun activities in the area you are planing to visit. Mark down the times they are open and rates. If you need to make reservations or buy tickets online beforehand that is always a time saver. Also, if you find some thing you might be interested in make sure to like them on facebook and twitter, a lot of places put out special promotional codes on social media.
- You don’t need to spend money on extra snack and drinks. That will just end up waiting your money! Especially in touristy areas where the raise the rates on all of those items. Take a cooler and pack it full! If you are staying in place with a kitchen make sure to pack breakfast foods so you can save money on at least one meal a day.
- Well, we all know the rules and prices for this are changing by the minute. Make sure to keep up on all the new rules and regulations of flying. It is harder to save money on a trip when you are flying because you are restricted on what you can bring. I would suggest you stop by a Wal-Mart, Target, or other grocery store to pick a few items once you arrive to save money.
- Always stay with a friend or family member. On a vacation you always have this feeling of freedom and safety but that may not always be the case. It doesn’t matter how much time you put into planning or how great a trip you had, if something happens to you or one of your friends the trip will be remember for all the wrong reasons.
