  • Money Tips

    When you go on a trip, you want to have the time of your life!!! You want your vacation to be as lavish as possible! But, as said, everything comes with a cost! To have a luxurious vacation, you have to spend from your pocket as well. Spending extravagantly can actually disturb your budget and your hard earned money can be lost. We present to you some of the tips that help you save your money along with enjoying the trip. Some of these are listed below.

    1. Rent a car
    What sounds expensive can actually often save you money. Consider renting a car instead of using the airport shuttle. Many times the cost of the shuttle is more than that of a modest car rental and you have the flexibility of having available transportation. Also, if you are driving to your destination, renting a car instead of using your own vehicle is often cheaper than the extra wear and tear on your own car. Take advantage of coupons to upgrade to a larger, and more comfortable, vehicle.

    2. Eat breakfast where kids eat free and split meals
    This can mean an enormous saving for a family of four or larger. Children are many times too excited or tired to eat much at a time. Restaurants that are kid friendly are more than happy to accommodate special requests for extra plates.

    3. Eat lunch in your room
    You'll be surprised how good a peanut butter sandwich, chips, and fresh fruit tastes away from home, and everyone gets a needed break from the heat and crowds of tourist destinations.

    4. Take advantage of coupons
    Whether it is for lodging, food, or attractions coupons SAVE money! Find them everywhere... online, in local newspapers, at convenience stores, motels, etc. Always read the fine print carefully for terms of the coupon.

    5. Bring along individual refillable water bottles
    These can be refilled at the hotel and at attraction water fountains.

    6. Take advantage of multi-day passes at the attractions
    This is especially a good deal when they can be used anytime.

    7. Make your own reservations
    Many hotels and airlines offer additional discounts and specials for booking online.

    8. Give each child a set amount to spend
    You can tame the "gimmes? and your pocketbook at the same time, by giving children a pre-set spending limit for reminders.

    9. Spend the day away from the attractions
    You're paying for that hotel, use it resources. Go and have a splash in the hotel swimming pool and enjoy yourself! Spend the day at the beach if there or a nearby museum.
