How to Plan Cheap Vacations


Would you like to go on a vacation? You can do so even if you are on a tight budget. You can celebrate with a family or group vacation at a lesser price. All you need to do is carefully and practically plan. Once you do this, you can savor the fun and cherish the memories. To help you plan your cheap vacation, here are some tips.

Procedure:

  • Choose a destination you can reach via land transportation. You don’t really need to hop on a plane and go to an island or somewhere far away to have a good vacation. Find a good destination you could reach within a few hours. This is a cheaper vacation option because airfare is expensive.


  • If your children wants to go to Disneyland or you and your friends want to go on a cruise, a cheaper version would be to camp at a camping site. It’s a cheap lodging option to have adventure and fun with your family or kids. If camping is not your idea of fun, you can drive to a nearby beach. You can set up a tent or lay blankets on the sand and drive home at night.
  • You can plan several activities that can add up fun to your vacation. Go biking or skating, or try boating or snorkeling at the beach. These activities will cost less and allow you to bond more.
  • Prepare your meals. If you go with a packed meal, you will cut down the cost of your vacation expenses. You can pack meals to store in your cooler to help you save, since dining out is more expensive than preparing a meal yourself. If you are with a group of friends, suggest doing a potluck. Each person should have something to bring and later share everything with everyone.
  • You can swap homes. There are sites that allow house trading. This means that your family will switch homes with another family. You can enjoy their place while they are enjoying your home environment while each of you get to see a different city as tourists staying in the comfort of a private home rather than a hotel.
  • Bring your own equipment. If beaches or parks have rentals with their facilities and equipment, you can bring your own if you have it. So take your surfboard or your bike to save on rental costs.

Tips and Warning

  • Be sure the place you go to is safe. When camping, make sure the area is an animal-free zone.
  • Do not drive when you are sleepy or drunk. After a day of activities you will probably be tired, so it’s better to drive the next day to avoid any accidents while driving.
