It’s time to start planning for summer vacations! Don’t rack up credit card debt to go on your dream vacation—plan ahead to minimize expenses. Bankrate.com offers some money-saving vacation planning tips:
- Think ahead: Plan for vacation necessities—film, sunscreen, refreshments—that you can bring with you to save money. Tourist hot spots often charge higher prices than stores closer to home.
- Consider timing: To get the best hotel deals, plan your timing wisely. Hotels in resort areas are generally more expensive on the weekends, but those in cities are more expensive during the week, when business travelers tend to travel most.
- Chow down cheaply: Pack your own drinks, snacks, and sandwiches to save money on dining out.
