Money-saving tips to simplify your vacation
Nearly 40% of Americans plan to take a vacation this year, and if you’re like most people, you want to know how to spend less on your trip. Travel coupons from ShopAtHome.com make it easy to find cheap prices on airfare, rental car and hotel. But there’s still one cost that will eat up your travel dollars faster than anything else: Food. So how do you spend less without going hungry? Just follow these simple (and proven) tips.
1. Pick a hotel room with a refrigerator.
If you only follow one of these tips, this is the one to remember: Get a refrigerator. You’ll easily cut your food expenses in half. Just bring your restaurant dinner leftovers back to the hotel room. Voila, free lunch tomorrow!
2. Run to the grocery store.
When you go on vacation, the last thing you want to do is stop at the grocery store, right? Wrong. With one quick trip, you can pick up sandwiches, salads and bottled drinks for a fraction of the restaurant price. Bonus tip: Pack up a few snacks and take the family on a picnic!
3. Enjoy free snacks, courtesy of your hotel.
If your hotel offers a free breakfast, grab some extra fruit or yogurt and take it back to your room. Pop it in the fridge before you head out for the day, and you’ll have a free afternoon snack waiting for you when you get back.
Remember, going on vacation doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Get travel coupons from ShopAtHome.com and save money!
