We live for getaways, but the idea of traveling might be a bit intimidating for most people simply because they think that they need to break the bank to check out some scenic views or enjoy some R&R. This does not always have to be the case, because there are lots of ways to travel and make the most out of your buck!
Find an Accessible Destination
Most of the time, we’re fixated on the idea that we have to catch a flight or drive 8-10 hours to be able to “travel.” A bit or research and taste for adventure will allow you to see places you can visit with only a 3-5 hour drive. Aside from saving you time, this will allow you to save up on gas money!
Finding a Great Hotel Deal
This is another way to save up on a lot money for your next trip: Great. Hotel. Deals. There are a lot of factors to consider when looking for an accommodation for your next trip or staycation, but a good price is definitely worth looking into, especially if you’re on a budget. Information can easily be accessed in this day and age, and spending some time online trying to look for accommodation discounts is guaranteed to save you a lot of money.
Planning Your Trip in Advance
A spontaneous trip can be a lot of fun, but tends to be pricey if you happen to be in the middle of the peak season. One of the main advantage of planning ahead is you can choose the date of your stay based on the lowest rate you can find. Because you don’t need to rush, advanced planning allows you to extensively check for promos and discounts.
Checking Your Wallet
Not sure what we mean by checking your wallet? We mean actually checking your wallet! Your credit cards offer more than a quick swipe for your purchases if you check online and see what perks they can offer you. Whether you’re planning to eat out on your trip or stay in, you’ll be surprised at the discounts your card can give you. Take Citi Bank for example, if you’re looking for a weekday Tagaytay accommodation at Discovery Country Suites, you can get up to 55% OFF on your stay! VISA also offers an interesting promo for its cardholders, if you pay with your VISA Card at Restaurant Verbena, you get a free bottle of wine for a minimum purchase of P5,000. Again, whenever thinking about your next adventure or staycation, a little research goes a long way.
Traveling on a budget has never been easier today. All it takes is a little bit of preparation to make sure you and your money go a long way!
