If you are like many families, you are looking ahead to the summer months and swimming, barbeques and family vacations! If you want to get away, you can save money on your trip by taking some easy steps. Here are just a few.
Buy venue tickets in advance. You can often find deals to save 10 or 20% if you buy tickets online. That might mean you have to more carefully plan your trip ahead of time and purchase the tickets accordingly.
Follow Daily Deal Sites. Watch GroupOn for the city where you are heading to as there are often admission deals to theme parks, restaurants and even hotels. and other events. So, if you are heading to Houston, watch the Houston GroupOn page.
Save on airfaire. Purchase tickets at least 6 weeks in advance and you can often get lower fares. You can also often find the best deals in the morning. And if you can, fly out on Wednesdays, as that is usually the lowest fare day of the week.
Don’t overplan. There is not need to see an attraction every day of your vacation. If you plan on being at your destination for 5 days, just plan events for 3 of them and then spend a couple of down days. Nothing says you have to do something every minute you are away from home.
