Hey Divas! It’s time – we’re heading to Art Basel in Miami! While we’ll be indulging in all the exclusive events, parties and art – we’ll be trying to keep our wallets in check!
If you’re one of those people who also have a difficult time budgeting for your upcoming vacation, we understand. And guess what? Overspending doesn’t have to rule your life. Just stick with our Divalicious tips we’re about to share to put together a great vacation without spending a small fortune to enjoy a wonderful trip with family and friends.
Focus On Traveling During The Off-Season
So many people fail to realize the value of traveling during the off-season. Not only will you save a bundle going on vacation as the vacation season dies down, you’re also going to have the run of amusement parks, water parks, and other places since the crowds will be a lot smaller and you will not have to wait in line for hours hoping to get on some of your favorite rides. But the main reason to focus on traveling during the off-season is the fact that you will save serious cash. Divas, you could spend 70 percent less on your travel expenses if you take a vacation during the off-season. Why not travel right after the summer vacation holiday ends on Labor Day – prices are at their lowest if you travel to the Caribbean, Mexico and Central America in September. Another great time to travel is right AFTER the New Year. It’s the best time to check out Europe.
Keep A Flexible Schedule And Book Trips At The Last Moment
Booking your trip at the last moment is one of the easiest ways to save serious money when going on vacation. Of course, this might not be the easiest since you have to be flexible when you can leave; still, you should seriously consider taking vacations this way. You’ll be able to save a lot more on hotels and flights since prices will drop when you book at the last second – when companies want to fill their business at all costs. They’d rather make a small portion of money than make nothing at all, which is a huge benefit to you, the consumer. Try fareness.com for some great deals.
Pick A Vacation Destination Close To Your Home
If you’re trying to save money, you can always take vacations close home. Save that airline ticket money for shopping and great restaurants! So how do you choose the ideal vacation spot when you’re picking one close to your home? We’ve got some ideas!
