We all like to save money when possible. Traveling can be expensive, but with the right, careful strategy, you lower the cost and the bite it takes out of your wallet. Try these tips on your next vacation. Your wallet will thank you.
- Skip the Airport Parking Charges – It’s usually a smart idea to leave your vehicle at home since airport parking can cost an extraordinary amount while you away. Take the shuttle bus to Houston airport for hassle-free, safe transportation at any time of the day.
- Look For Free Activities – Do some research, and you’ll find that there are often lots of free activities in the area you are planning to visit. Try a self-guided walking tour to experience your destination up close. Many museums often offer a weekly ‘pay what you can’ day, and sometimes have discounted admission after a specific time of day.
- Be Aware of Your Hotel Location – Transportation can add up quickly on vacation. If you are staying in Houston, try taking the shuttle bus to Houston airport both ways to save on the expensive cab fare. Also, try to book your hotel somewhere that you can walk everywhere or near public subway systems.
- Carry Snacks & Water On Outings – Most people need snacks while exploring. Throw some granola or protein bars in your bag and pull them out when you or the kids need some fuel. Always carry your water in a reusable container. It’s cheaper and greener for the environment.
