Five Ways to Save on Food When Traveling

Whenever I am traveling, the biggest cost I incur is food!

Rather than spend your whole budget at the dinner table, take to heart these five ways to save on food when traveling, and put some of your hard earned money back in your pocket.

HOW TO SAVE ON FOOD WHEN TRAVELING

PACK YOUR OWN FOOD

Taking a road trip? Pack the car with drinks, snacks, and easy fixings for lunch (like sandwiches). Not every meal has to be gourmet or memorable.

SHOP LOCAL GROCERY STORES

Whether you are on the road or already at your destination, head to a grocery store to get food for simple meals to eat at the hotel or in the car. Even premade sandwiches from a grocery deli are less expensive than a sandwich shop or fast food place.

VISIT LOCAL RESTAURANTS

Avoid chains and try a local restaurant. Quite often, they have lower overhead which allows you to save money and have some fresh eats with cultural flare.

SHARE YOUR MEALS

Order one meal for two. Restaurants often serve portions large enough to take home leftovers, and who needs to deal with extra food that you have to reheat when you’re traveling? Split your meal with your travel companion to cut down the bill.
