How to Take a Vacation on a Budget: Our Best Tips
Is it possible to take a vacation on a budget? Here at Vacation Strategy, we believe that the answer to that question is a resounding yes. No matter who you are or what your budget is, we believe that you deserve to take a vacation that provides you with rest and relaxation, refreshing you from the inside out and recharging you as you head back home and move back into the routine of your daily life.
But what are the best places for vacation that are enjoyable even when you’re trying to save money? Luckily for you, we have a few suggestions for you.
Our Tips for a Budget-Friendly Vacation
First of all, if you want to save a boatload of money, booking through Vacation Strategy is far and away your best choice. You see, we started our business with the simple realization that it’s financially better for your family to rent from a timeshare owner than it is to actually be a timeshare owner. But how can you go about doing that? Luckily for you, it’s been our goal to help make sense of it all, providing plenty of options to our customers and ensuring that there’s no risk involved in finding an incredible place to stay no matter where you choose to go.
We work with hundreds of timeshare property owners so you can get all of the benefits of staying at a timeshare without the hassle of owning one. To put it simply, we can save you 40% to 70% versus what you’d spend if you book through Travelocity, Expedia, Orbitz, or similar online booking sites. As a matter of fact, we even have a guarantee--if you find a better price, we’ll gladly match that price and we’ll give you $50 towards a vacation with us in the future.
No matter what kind of trip you’d like to take, the best vacation on a budget starts by booking a trip through Vacation Strategy. It’s as simple as that. We offer resorts in a number of different locations and it’s our goal to make sure you have a vacation you love while creating memories with your family that will last a lifetime.
How Else Can You Save Money on Vacation?
Traveling with family? Find a kid-friendly vacation spot. Chances are that if you are traveling with your kids in tow, you’ll want to find a place that has plenty for them to do. Many of the resorts you’ll find on our website have on site play areas, ensuring that your kids always have somewhere to go and something to do that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Branson and Vegas are particularly good vacation spots for families due to the fact that many shows include a meal. That means all you have to do is pay for the ticket and you’ll enjoy an evening full of entertainment and food. It really doesn’t get much better than that.
You could also choose to book a Disney vacation. We know what you might be thinking--surely that’s much too expensive, right? Depending on the location you choose to stay, you could be saving a boatload, making a day pass into Disney exactly the thing that will please each and every member of your family. There is plenty to see and do right there. Between rides, characters in costumes, and seeing the sights, you’ll find that one day at your favorite Disney location doesn’t quite break the bank and is more than worth the money you’ll spend to make the kids happy.
Find a Location with a Kitchen
Touring all of the local restaurants and trying as many different foods as you can while you’re on vacation can be incredibly fun if you’re on a getaway with your spouse, but when you have all of the kids along with you, the bill can add up pretty quickly. Even having two kids can pretty easily add an extra $20 to $40 to the cost of each meal--an expense that means you have to budget quite a bit more money if you plan to eat at restaurants for your whole trip. That means that a resort with a kitchen that you can use might be in your best interest.
All it takes is a quick trip to the nearest grocery store and you’re off to the races. You can even cook foods that are out of the ordinary for your family to eat, treating each and every person to some delicious food, without breaking the bank. That sounds like a win/win situation to us!
Consider What's Nearby
Of course you could also choose to stay at a Wyndham location that’s relatively nearby, saving you money on airfare and car rentals. Isn’t there always a place just a few hours away that you’ve been dying to explore but you’ve never carved out the time do do it? This is your chance!
A step up from the so-called “staycation,” the in-state trip allows you all of the luxuries of a vacation without the expense of a plane ticket and all of the hassle that goes along with corralling the kids into a specific place at a particular time and then hoping the batteries on their iPads don’t die during the eight hour flight.
