Money-saving summer travel tips for you:
Wherever you are traveling this summer, it’s always helpful to simplify and economize to make your trip more enjoyable. Here are some top travel tips to save you money and time.
Make sure you take your student ID or your International Student Identity Card with you. You will have the opportunity to save on everything from museum entrance fees to goods and food. For those who are not students, but are 30 or younger, look into getting an International Youth Travel Card. With it, you can get discounts on flights, discounts at hotels and hostels, discounts at home and in 133 countries around the world. If you’re a veteran or a retiree, you should also bring your ID along and mention that you are a senior or veteran to receive discounts at many locations.
You can use apps and websites such as Living Social and Groupon to find discounted tickets to attractions, deals on travel packages, hotels, restaurants and much more. Be sure to pick up copies of local newspapers and magazines at your hotel or the local newsstand, so you can find out about events and get deals on everything just like the locals.
Use rewards programs for airlines, hotels, rental cars and credit cards. You may be able to get upgraded or free stays, discounts on meals, or airline perks.
Many tourist attractions and museums have a day every month or once a week with free or discounted entry fees. When you do your research, look at the websites of the places you plan to visit and check for free days.
