Summer Vacation Money Saving Tips

roadtripfamilyPlanning your summer road trip vacation on our last article was very informative and we also wanted to add some tips in this article for saving money if you are flying or renting a car for travel.

Air Travel

Airfare rates go up and down on a daily basis it seems, but a little research can save you a bundle and get the cheapest rates.  I came across TravelZoo.com and found cheap flights not only for this week but also for the next 90 days.  You can use this website to help plan your trip and see what days or weeks are best for your savings.

Car Rental

It’s the extra’s that can cost your more, but with a bit of thinking ahead you can keep that money in your pocket for travel. Rental car companies can charge you for a GPS system and child safety seats. Bring your own. Considering what type of cell phone you have, there are apps for GPS that you can download into your phone. If you are not sure which one will work for you contact your phone provider for assistance.

If you have a child, you already have a car seat for them. Bring it along when renting a car for travel, as many rental companies allow this.

If you are traveling state to state or city to city you will probably access  toll roads that use electronic toll systems (e-tolls).  These toll systems are to help traffic flow better with out having to stop at toll booth.  You may want to get a toll pass (SunPass) here in Florida so you are assured that your tolls will be paid for ahead of time. Rental companies do offer this service and charge a daily fee and most likely the same pass.

Stopping for a bite to eat

You can save a bundle on your meals for kids by going to MyKidsEatFree.com. This site will show you a list of restaurants that offer free meals for kids under a certain age. Some on certain days and some all the time.

For adults, check out restaurants along your route by going to their websites. Most have menu’s and coupons or days for discounts.  A little research ahead or using your cell phone can save you lots.
