Summer is on its way and school is almost over. That means two to three months of sightseeing, volunteering, sunbathing or just plain relaxing, but to get the most out of your summer you’ll need to do a little planning, especially if you’re on a budget. Here are a few tips to get you started.
Get Local– With rising gas prices extreme destination vacations may not be possible, but that doesn’t mean that you have to cancel your trip. Try destinations that are close to home. Every state has a tourism board and you can be surprised how much fun can be had just two or three hours from home. A road trip to a nearby Bed and Breakfast or rental home on a lake may be just the getaway you need.
Consider a Rental – When you need to get the most bang for your buck, a rental home or condo can sometimes be your best options especially if you’ve got a large group or family or if you’d like to stay longer than a couple of days. Rental homes can offer privacy that you just can’t get from large resorts and hotels and they allow you to take advantage of cost saving measures like full- kitchens or game rooms. Visit Vacation Rentals to browse options for your next trip.
DIY – Using a travel agent can sometimes pack on unnecessary dollars to your travel budget, and many times that work can be done with just a little effort and time. Try online services to research package deals for a hotel, rental cars, and airfare. You’ll get lots of options and be able to compare destinations quickly and easily. You can also check out sources like the Travel Channel for destination guides to help you decide what to do and see across the globe.
Now that you know what to do all that’s left is figuring out where to go. Now, that’s the hard part. Visit Vacation Rentals and let your imagination run wild.
