5 Tips to Spring Break On A Budget

It’s finally Spring Break, and you can’t wait to swap the library for the beach! However, this doesn’t mean you need to spend a fortune to have fun. Have a great time without hurting your budget by following these five Spring Break tips.

Check your school for discounts and help.

Lots of colleges offer on-campus travel agents who can help you plan your vacation right by snagging the best deals. Plus, your school may be able to get you special discounts.

Don’t pay full price.

Before booking any hotel stays, attractions or restaurants, check out couponing sites! You can also browse the tourist brochures for deals once you get to your hotel. Why pay full price if you don’t have to?

Fly for less.

Get the best flight deals by clearing your web browser cache before searching. Book on a Tuesday that’s six weeks before your flight for the time window offering the lowest prices. Also, consider flying mid-week for the best deals.

Use discount travel sites.

Many discount travel sites have apps you can download to help you with scheduling, pricing and organizing your trip. You’ll have access to exclusive deals, plus loads of suggestions for local tourist hotspots to help you plan your stay.

Dine in.

Don’t assume you need to eat each meal at another restaurant. Instead, stock up on basic supplies at the grocery and eat most of your meals in your hotel room. Take advantage of the continental breakfasts that many hotels offer. You can also pick up food from a street vendor for a fraction of the price.

Spring break doesn’t have to mean a break from budgeting. Plan ahead and choose wisely so you won’t be paying off your vacation all summer long.
