Here are some brilliant, overlooked ways to save money for the next time you book a getaway!
Book a vacation package
Vacation packages are quite convenient. I recently booked a trip to South Beach Miami, Florida for a good price of $375. Yes… $375, and guess what? That wasn’t just a flight.
It was $375 for flight AND hotel together! You can book packages on travel sites like Expedia where they allow you to choose the dates, hotel, flight times, etc. $375 flight/hotel for a week was hard to pass up!
Book apartments or condos with friends
Websites like Airbnb, Homeaway, and Flipkey gives you the best deals on booking condos, treehouses, full houses, mansions, apartments, boats in over 200 countries.
My friends and I did a week in New York City a few months ago and booked an entire studio apartment with 2 bedrooms for only $100 a night in Manhattan.
If you want to travel you have to shift your priorities. Maybe you do not need a huge apartment if you do not plan to be their very often.
Maybe you can save some cash from monthly shopping sprees or you can for go having a very expensive television package.
If you make traveling a priority, it will happen, just do it!
Use your resources and by that we mean APPS!!
Download apps like Uber, Yelp, Amazon, Tripadvisor, Hotels.com, Eat 24 and Hotel Tonight just to name a few that can help you with booking emergency hotel stays, cool places to eat, and deals!
There are several apps and resources on the internet that helps you save money while on the go. Uber is my best friend whenever I travel.
The flat rates are far cheaper than any regular taxi ride. I spent an hour in traffic in the Uber driver’s car getting to the other side of Miami and only paid $2.
Amazon is great for bus tour deals as well, just do your research before you head off on your adventure.
