Budget Travel Tips for Families

If you are looking for budget travel tips you have come to the right place. I love to travel but I must carefully plan for each penny that will be spent. Fortunately, it is easier than ever to travel on a budget.

The first step is to first decide how much you want to spend. This will largely determine how far you can go.

The second step in budget travel is to look at the costs of the motel rooms and round trip gas. These are 2 factors over which you have the least control. Once you have these figures it is easier to decide how long you want to stay.

Travel clubs like AAA and even a Sam's Wholesale Club membership can help you save on motel rooms. Be sure to check online travel sites. Before booking, call the motel and compare prices. Ask if there are any specials that you should know about. Some motels have internet only specials and others will save those value rooms for walk-in customers or callers. It is always worth phoning ahead. You also want to double check the price of the room at check in just in case a lower price option is available.

The last thing on the list is to look at attractions and meals. To save money, meals can be eaten out of a cooler. This can be the most convenient plan if you are traveling to the beach or to a park.
