SET A BUDGET
Find out what you have in the budget for a week or two of travel before booking anything else so that your money is being used as wisely as possible.
Planning your stops ahead lets you find deals on hotels. Search online and even call the hotel you want to stay at to see if you can get a better rate.
Pack a cooler with healthy snacks that will not spoil quickly so you can enjoy them over the course of your trip without breaking your budget.
This can help reduce traffic jams and make getting from one place to another faster while also reducing the amount of money spent on gas from all of the stop and go.
PREPARE YOUR CAR BEFORE YOUR TRIP
Get a tune-up and oil change to help your car handle the trip better and prevent problems on the road.
