You Deserve a Nice Summer Vacation…
Here’s the thing…we all want to take amazing summer vacations right? We want to get away from the craziness of every day life and escape to a place of sheer bliss and peace for a little while. That might not be in your budget for this summer though. Here are some ideas to help you save money on a nice summer vacation.
Plan ahead for your summer vacation!
Taking a last minute trip anywhere is going to be more expensive. The more time you give yourself to plan, save, and accommodate the more money you will be able to save on your summer vacation.
I’m not just talking about booking flights and hotels though, I’m talking about taking time to research the area you are visiting and finding out ahead of time where you will be able to save money!
Do you have to spend money to save money?
Did you ever notice that those rooms with the little kitchens in them or a bed and breakfast with kitchen privileges seems to be a little more expensive? This might be one of those times where you need to spend a little money to save more money in the long run.
Eating out for every meal during a summer vacation is one of the most costly parts of any trip. It’s much more wise in terms of funding a trip to spend a little more on a room or house that has a kitchen so you are able to cook your meals and feed your family something other than takeout and restaurant meals for the entire trip!
You can make your own fun when you are visiting a new place for your summer vacation. You don’t have to spend a fortune in order to entertain your family and have fun on your vacation. Spend time at free local spots like the library for movie nights or a museum that offers great summer rates for kids.
Take along some games and other activities for the evenings and make sure you plan on spending some time doing free activities so the whole family knows it won’t be a constant string of paid entertainment!
I want an expensive summer vacation!
That’s totally fine! There are ways to save while still enjoying a summer vacation that is totally indulgent and instagram worthy.
Check out sites like Groupon and other travel voucher locations. There are ways to get good deals by booking ahead or though certain travel agencies as well. If you know that you want to take an expensive trip…give yourself time to make it happen! Saving up over a year or more can make it more easy on your day to day budget when you return from your trip!
