If you want to have a destination wedding or you’re planning the honeymoon and your budget isn’t stretching as far as you thought, then you’re in the right place. The following 8 tips can help you make your trip cheaper so you can stay longer or enjoy yourself a little more!
Compare Prices – Use an online website to compare prices and book the cheapest hotels or flights!
Free Entertainment – Rather than planning expensive entertainment like shows or amusement parks, research your destination and plan your trip around local free festivals and events.
Charles Schwab Accounts – Or similar accounts like these, allow you to take money out via the ATM without the $2.50 or $5 charge each time. This really can add up in savings!
Haggle – Don’t be afraid to haggle with local salesmen or women. Most items are priced up in anticipation of hagglers.
Ask for Discounts – No matter what you’re paying for (your hotel, your flight, your taxi, etc.) ask for discounts. Most of the time, you can come out paying less than the advertised price.
Take Less Luggage – You don’t want to check too much luggage or you’ll end up really paying for it. Pack lighter and consider each addition to the luggage before you add it. Do you really need it?
Read Blogs – Check blogs of others who have traveled to the areas you’re considering. You can learn a lot and really discover some great ways to save.
Eat Like the Locals – If you eat like the locals (shopping at farmer’s markets and grocery stores rather than eating at a restaurant for ever meal) you can really save a lot – and often get to experience delicious things you won’t see back home.
These are just a few tips that can help you make your travels cheaper and may let you splurge a little on something you really want to do.
