Excerpts from the e-book "101 Tips for Traveling on a Budget"
The key to budget travel is to plan ahead. When it comes to family trips, globetrotting, well-deserved vacations and/or going to see new places we have never been before, the reality of cost and budgeting is always in the back of our minds.
Planning and spending our travel dollar wisely is a priority for most families. Curbing spending and costs, while still enjoying your vacation to its fullest, is the key to guaranteed success and fiscal responsibility. Your pocketbook and family will thank you.
The reason behind saving money while traveling is simple. Even if your personal budget is extremely tight, you can still take a break and enjoy life! Simply put, life is just too short to never step out of the door or leaving the homestead!
Also remembering that while traveling, whether on a budget or not. even the smallest of things can all add up to a large vacation or travel bill!
For example, all those hotel extra's, cab-fares, tips, restaurants, car rentals. for your own vehicle if on a road trip, tickets for special attractions or events, beach-and-pool-side drinks (if not at an all-inclusive resort or cruise) and more, adds on and piles up.
