Looking for a cheaper getaway?

Categories: Travel Tips and tagged , , , . Bookmark the permalink.

Getting away for a little vacation time is an idea that comes to everyone’s mind as the summer rolls around. Unfortunately with today’s economy it can be tough to find affordable trips. Sometimes the best deals are through all inclusive resorts.

 

Tips to good deals:

Check the fine print.

If you think the deal is too good to be true, then that just might be the case. Just be certain that you are getting everything that you believe that you are paying for, such as meals and alcoholic beverages included.

 

When you go will make a difference.

-A cruise during October and early November will be the cheapest time of year.

-Kid friendly theme parks are likely to have deals and be less crowded during regular school months.

-European vacations cost less during fall months.

-Vegas destinations run special deals during the heat of July and August.
