Traveling for Anyone
You might be taking a break from looking at all of the amazing travel photos on Instagram and wondering how do they do it? Well, while it is certainly fun to travel in luxury, it doesn’t mean that’s the only way. You are already taking advantage of our ridiculously low prices for FLL Airport parking, but we have more tips and tricks for you to try. You’ll see that you can vacation more often with our tips to making travel affordable! (And you won’t have to get an extra job to cover costs).
1. Spend Less
We told you we wouldn’t ask you to get another job or source of income, and we won’t. Many people can save money each month by eliminating/reducing unnecessary bills. Can you start brewing coffee at home once or twice a week? How about cutting cable and using streaming services that are less than half the cost? Eat in a little more often or haggle with your cell phone planner for a better price. Take the money you would have spent and put it into your travel fund. You’ll be amazed at how quickly and effortlessly the number will grow.
2. Collecting Points
Getting points that you can redeem for travel is one of the best ways to cut down travel costs. Many airlines have their own credit cards you can apply for with huge points incentives. If you don’t want to apply for a new credit card, check the ones you already use. Chase and Citibank are just two of the larger companies that will allow you to use your points for travel too. Keep in mind that you can even get points from hotel chains. Their rewards are as amazing as free nights and upgrades. Plus hotel loyalty programs are free to sign up for! It’s a win-win.
3. Flexibility, Flexibility, Flexibility
Did you know that there are certain days of the week where flying is historically lower? Tuesdays and Wednesdays are great days to fly because they tend to have the cheapest tickets. When you’re flexible you can often travel in the “off-season”. Even if you’re out by one week from when the season “officially” begins, you can capitalize on the cheaper prices. Bonus Tip: If you do have flexibility with your plans and your airline has overbooked your flight, consider volunteering to take the next one. Airlines will generally compensate you with credit vouchers for hundreds of dollars or even a pair of round-trip tickets for your inconvenience. See what they have to offer before you agree.
4. Cutting Back
We imagine vacations as a way to indulge and relax. You can still do that, but take time to consider if it’s worth it. Staying in a five star hotel sounds great, but too pricey? Check out AirBNB for more affordable accommodations. You can still hang out at the resort. For example, Atlantis in the Bahamas offers day passes to take advantage of their amenities and the Omni Grove in Asheville will give you an all access pass to their spa and pool with the purchase any spa treatment. Another great option is to find a place to stay that has a kitchenette. How many times have you found yourself in a hotel’s convenience store getting a $4 bottle of water or grabbing a $7 breakfast sandwich? Get some of the staples yourself at a local grocery store where prices are much cheaper.
