There are several ways that you can save on a family vacation this year!
First I highly suggest signing up for all of the daily deal sites, including Deal Chicken which focuses on travel deals! This is going to help you to save on hotels, flights, etc.
DealChicken Travel delivers deep discounts on travel, from quaint bed & breakfasts to tropical escapes. Join the email list and get notified every time a new deal hatches.
We are not planning to take a trip this summer, and have chosen instead to spend the summer getting to know the area attractions instead. But that doesn’t mean I can’t be persuaded to take one should an amazing deal come along! I am keeping my eye on the Deal Chicken travel deals lately because I am looking for a trip that I just can’t pass up!
You can also sign up for travel deals from the following sites:
- Dunhill Travel
Saving Dollars and Sense Tip
Don’t just look at the deals available for your local area. Check them out for any area you plan or simply want to travel to. When we went to Philly last summer, I found some great vouchers from Groupon for walking tours and attractions that were about 80% off the regular price.
I also make sure to pick up some Restaurant Gift Certificates here and save up to 90% off you dining costs!
We always pack a cooler when we drive with drinks and sandwiches to keep us from pulling over to grab a snack or fast food.
Do you have any tried and true tips for saving on family vacations? Please share them in the comments section, I’m always looking for new ideas!
