6 Tips to Save on Travel

1. Travel in the off season

You can typically save on the cost of airfare and hotel rooms if you travel during the off season, which usually means there will be more availability because you’re also beating the crowds. Off season travel doesn’t work with every destination, so be sure to check that local shops and attractions will be open.

2. Look for free activities

Every city has discounts hiding all over – usually a quick Google search or recommendations from Facebook friends will help you find what you need to know. From free museum days, to pay what you can theater nights, there are plenty of easy discounts out there.

3. Use your points and miles

Don’t forget about any rewards you might have accumulated, and be sure to sign up for rewards programs if you haven’t already. Aside from credit rewards programs, you can also earn points Travel off the beaten path. Heading just a few blocks away from those typical tourist destinations will often save you a good bit of money, especially when it comes to eating out at restaurants.

4. Get alerts for cheap airfares

There are many ways you can find out about cheap airline tickets ahead of time, and all you have to do is sign up and wait. Subscribe to emails from sites like Secret Flying and The Flight Deal, and set your alert preferences for apps like Skiplagged and Hopper – you won’t miss a single good deal.

5. Use apps to call and text

Now more than ever, it’s easy to call and text without using (or even having to pay for) any international data plan. Hop on the local wifi – which is also pretty easy to find now – and use FaceTime, WhatsApp, Facebook, or one of any other app out there that lets you call and message at no cost to you.
