How To Save Money Traveling

Travel can be really expensive. After you fly to your destination, rent your car and check into your hotel…it almost seems like there is no money left to actually have fun with!

Some tricks to traveling cheaply:

  1. Driving is NOT always the cheapest option. Sometimes it is though. See if it’s worth it to drive. If so, maybe renting a car is even more economical because it reduces wear and tear on your own car, and you have a car when you get to your destination. Sit down and write out a pros and cons list to driving your own car, renting a car or flying. There is no hard and fast rule that says one is always cheaper than the others.
  2. Book in advance. You can get last minute deals, but booking in advance is always the smarter option. You don’t want to be stuck last minute and realize that a good deal just isn’t going to come your way!
  3. Go through a service like Hotwire.com, Expedia or Priceline rather than directly through the airline, hotel or car rental business. They often have much cheaper options! Even cheaper when you combine services into a package deal.
We typically go through Hotwire.com for all of our travel needs. They consistently seem to give us the best prices, and if we book far enough in advance…travel is much more reasonably priced.

If you have travel needs during the upcoming holiday season, check out Hotwire.com!
