31 Oct 10 Tips for an Affordable Vacation

Vacation is indeed an energizing tonic and we all need it. But in the time of global slowdown, we feel threatened and apprehensive towards going for vacation. We fear bankruptcy. But let me surprise you, even in this time of financial crunch you can go for your annual vacation, have fun. You need not pay handsome for a vacation, just know how to save money and enjoy your trip.

Just follow these advices and enjoy your vacation.

Book your tickets and accommodation in advance

Make sure, you get your travel tickets and hotel accommodation done, much in advance. A holiday package always becomes expensive in the last moment. Seeing the demand agencies may hike package deal amount. If you are going on your own, even then book your tickets and accommodation much in advance, as price goes up later and turn exorbitant during holiday time like Christmas, New Year. Reserve your days for vacation in advance and get your employer’s approval of the same.

Keep it for minimum days and places

Go for vacation, but just minimize it. This way you won’t be bankrupt and also holiday dream will come true. If you have planned five or six destinations to visit, cut it short, visit just one or two places as per your affordability and preference. If you have been planning for a weeklong trip, instead, settle for three or four days long plan.

Choose no-frills services

Don’t indulge into too much luxury and comfort. Instead settle for a no-frills budget accommodation. Try to get hold of someone’s house or guest house, where you can make your own meals and save eating out cost. Or go for a budget hotel, with no add-on services. Take food from small street-side eating joints or vendors if you wish to save tax-inclusive eating cost at hotel.

Travel by public conveyance

For sightseeing, visiting local market or eating out take local buses and trains instead of spending too much on car rentals.

Book online and compare

Book your accommodation and travel ticket online, it will save your money otherwise you would have paid to agents or dealers. E-booking will help you save 10% compared to booking in person or phone. Compare price of holiday packages, flights, hotels, car rentals on internet.

Make a realistic budget

Make your holiday planning with a pre-determined budget, which is realistic and logical. Move on with a fixed amount of money in your pocket and avoid using credit card.
