As a travel professional I often hear how people will put off going on vacation due to financial concerns. In fact, some people won’t take a vacation because they think it’s too expensive. Well, that’s where I come in!
Indeed some vacations, depending on where you are traveling can put a dent in your wallet. But, if you’re swift, flexible and willing to sacrifice, you can laugh at the dent while adding some extra cash to your wallet for spending.
When it comes to budgeting your vacation, travel is all about being flexible. If you are willing to travel, for instance, from week day to week day, you could possibly save as much as $500 on your vacation depending on where you are traveling to.
Try these tips…
For travel to Disney World
When traveling to Disney World, try to stay from Wednesday to Tuesday instead of Saturday - Saturday. Doing so will save you a nice amount of money. Plus, you still get a weekend in the trip and won’t be charged for weekend rates. Another great way to explore Disney World is by lodging @ offsite partner resorts and hotels. For instance, rather than staying at Disney All Star Resorts(which by the way is an awesome resort!), stay off site in the Down Town Disney area, Lake Buena Vista or Kissimmee for more valuable resorts. Plus, you can still take advantage of the park hopper passes offered by Disney! If you stay off site, you could easily save up to $1000, depending on your family size.
For travel to the Caribbean Islands
Traveling to the Caribbean Islands? Try an All-Inclusive package! These packages are rewarding and you don’t have to worry about food, beverages or even activities. This is a plus for families, especially where the family size is greater than 4 persons. At most, an all-inclusive package will always come with hotel accommodations, all food, beverages, all non-motorized water sports and activities, tips & taxes. So you don’t have to worry about anything. Even tips are included!
Like many other things, travel too, requires sacrifices. Soooooo, you may have to limit or temporally give up night life, frequent dining out or even the mall and start sending those hard earn bucks to your travel professional for payments on your trip. Easier said than done, but at the end sits the ultimate reward of a much deserved vacation with family or friends.
