Escape the Cold by Planning a Great Vacation!

Sometimes just planning a vacation can go a long way to driving away those winter chills.

Rest and recuperation are essential to health – physical, family-wise, and spiritual. So plan it right, use these tips, and enjoy it guilt-free!

  1. Plan in Advance – As far out as possible. Decide where and when you want to go. Calculate how much money you need and save consistently toward it.

  2. Research Your Destination – Check online for deals, discounts, coupons and free activities.

  3. Bring Your Coupons – Pack coupons for grocery items. It’s cheaper to buy items at the store than to eat out every meal. Don’t forget restaurant coupons.

  4. Pack Meals and Snacks – Use a box or cooler to pack snack and sustainable breakfast items.
  5. Share Meals – When you eat out, share a meal. Being hungry (and tired) can override better judgment and result in ordering too much food. Remember, you can always order more if someone is still hungry.

  6. Shop Your Accommodations – Find the best deal you can. Call hotels directly and ask for the lowest price. Find a hotel that offers free breakfast to save on food. If vacationing for a few nights or more, consider resorts or home vacation rentals. Often the per-night total is lower, the space is larger, and most have a kitchen, to cook meals instead of eating out.

  7. Research Free Transportation – Some accommodations offer free tram or shuttle service to/from attractions or the airport. You have to abide by their schedule, but it saves big in parking fees and gas.

  8. Research Traffic Patterns – If you drive yourself, use the web to map out routes and learn local traffic. Knowing an alternate route (or a better time to be in transit) can save gas and a lot of time.

  9. Make a Packing List – And check it twice. It will show you ahead of time things you need – allowing time to look for a great deal on that must-have item.

  10. Look for Bundled Vacations – You can save by purchasing hotel, attraction tickets and transportation together. But do your research first – bundling is not always the cheapest.

  11. Travel with Friends or Family – And share costs. It makes a nice vacation more affordable and a lot more fun.
