7 Ways To Save On Travel Costs

September 9th, 2013 by in Finance with 2,849 Views

If you want to cut down on travel costs, you need to be craftier when booking a trip. Airfares are up and added fees including for exit-row seats and checked bags are pushing the cost of flying higher. Furthermore, hotel bargains maybe harder to come by as business travelers start to return, reducing the need for hotels to give discounts on rooms in major cities. But that doesn’t mean you can’t cut costs as there are still plenty of ways to cut down on travelling costs.

1) Shop “private sales”, Cut down on hotel expenses

A growing number of websites have flash sales, for example Jetsetter, SniqueAway and TabletHotels have flash sales of 20 to 60 percent off hotel packages. At one time, Jetsetter offered a Friday night at Angler’s, a boutique hotel in Miami, for $255 a night, a reduction from $359 offered at the hotel’s site. At TripAlertz, the more people who book a deal, the lower the rate. All you have to do is create an account to access the deals.

2) Shop on Tuesday

Most airlines do sales on Monday evenings, and by Tuesday, other airlines will have matched the lowered fares on the same route. Sales are hard to predict, therefore travelers looking for the best deal should start the searches three to four months in advance, when airlines begin to look closely which routes may need a sale to fill seats.

    Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday are the best days to travel. They are always cheaper and less busy since you do not have all the weekend and business travelers.

    Facetime is another great option for talking to friends and family over seas. There is usually less of a delay and can be used with wireless as well.

      Skype or any video chat for that matter

    I’ve traveled to many places in my lifetime and I thought for sure I would recognize every item on this list. But, I was pleasantly surprised. Shopping on Tuesday is a great tip. Somethings I would like to add are hotel and flight websites like Priceline and Orbitz.

    I can add something that, any off day is costly for traveling. Try to travel on working days. Yes, using skype may save much penny. Also avoid traveling on major holidays is another good advice.
