It is that time of year again, where you travel to see your family. Traveling can be expensive, but it does not have to. Here are some tips for all those holiday travelers to help them save some money.
If you are flying try flying during the week. Rates tend to be less during the week as most people do their flying on the weekend. This can add up to a big savings as flying can be expensive.
The snacks and drinks on flights can be expensive as well. To save money on these try packing some of your own snacks to have on the plane. That way you do not have to worry about being hungry while on the flight. We all know airlines will not let you bring a bottle of water on the plain and they charge a lot for you to get one while flying. Instead pack an empty bottle in your carryon. Then you can go to the bathroom and fill it up without having to pay for the water.
Instead of flying try taking a bus to your destination. This is a lower cost way to travel for the holidays. It does take longer to get to your destination but it will help to save money during the holiday season.
When packing to travel make sure to pack some entertainment. Pack a book, some music, some movies, or whatever you want. Bringing your own entertainment along will help you to save money as you will not have to buy or rent anything while traveling or while you are at your destination.
Consider shipping the gifts you would be taking with you before you leave. The cost of bringing luggage with you has been going up every year. It has become more cost effective to ship them first so you know they will be there when you get there.
Take advantage of any rewards program that you are enrolled in. This is always a good idea not just during the holiday season. This can help save you some money here and there which can really add up.
There are many more ways that anyone can save money on their holiday traveling. Spend some time thinking about how you can cut back here and there to make the trip just as fun but not as expensive. Sit down with your family and come up with ideas together, you may be surprised by some of the great ideas that come up.
