Low Budget Vacation Ideas


Are you trying to plan a vacation for yourself, your family or maybe a boys weekend or even a girls weekend away? Are you looking for some low-budget ideas that won’t break your bank, but can still afford you a good time? Well look no more, my friend. I have some great ideas for you to look over.

These places offer some of the lowest room rates and some even offer lower rates, by offering camping if that’s what you might be looking for. I will list the places and give you a small summary about each place, but then you just need to click on them and see for yourself what’s offered.

ACE Adventure Resort – Oak Hill, West Virginia lodging ranges from rustic camping to cozy log cabins and lakeside Chalets. Ace Adventure Resort is located in a prime area on the New River Gorge National River, known as the East Coast’s Grand Canyon.

If you are an outdoor enthusiast, I would highly recommend checking this site out. The possibilities are almost endless with white water rafting, zip-line tours, rock-climbing, kayaking, horse-back riding, and back at camp, there is wild water park fun with inflatables on the lake, almost anything for the thrill-seeker to the person who just wants to leave the city behind.

Sea Mist Oceanfront  Resort  – Myrtle Beach, South Carolina – Lodging encompasses almost any type you can imagine, hotel, condos, cottages, bungalows, villas, even rental houses. If you can’t find something you can afford here, I would be greatly surprised. But, their rates are very good and they have some accommodations where you can bring your pet.

They offer so many packages to choose from, but even if you don’t choose a package, you already have free admission to so many exciting events and places already located on the resort.

Best Budget Vacation- How Much will I Sacrafice?

 

Being a Budget Traveler and getting the Best Budget Vacation doesn’t just mean saving money, but also traveling in the smartest, most stylish way possible. How do we do this? Keep reading and you can join the millions of people already using these techniques.

Haven’t you ever wondered, “How in the world, can that person afford to travel that way?”Stay with me and you, too, may be traveling, better, yet cheaper then you have in the past.

There’s a Reasonably Priced Hotel Room With Your Name on It

Don’t just snap up the first room that seems reasonably priced. Do your research – how close are you to the attractions you are looking for? Call the Hotel and ask for the best price, the most appropriate room options, and for a free upgrade. You will be surprised at what some Hotels can do that is unadvertised.

I usually like to find at least 2 or 3 different Hotels that interest me and then call each one. Sometimes you can even pit once against the other. The more often you do this, the better you will get at it.

Did You Know There is A Best Day To Buy Airline Tickets?Plane

Yes, believe it or not, there is. Buy your airline tickets about two months before you fly, and buy them on a Tuesday. You will likely get your best price by doing this. Another good tip is to follow all major airlines on social media, sign up for there rewards programs, and subscribe to their free e-newsletters to get the inside track on deals.

There is Also A Best Time of Day to Pick up Your Rental Car!

You want to pick up your rental car first thing in the morning. Budget Travelers book the smallest car and pick up time as early as possible. The early bird gets the free upgrade. Most travelers won’t have returned their small cars yet and they will be out of stock . The Rental Agency is obligated to give you a car and therefore will have to offer you an upgrade.

The Two Best Times to Book a Cruise.

Booking your cruise 6 mts to a year in advance is ususaly the first time of getting a better price. Supply is high and demand is relatively flat. The next best time to book a cruise is in the last two weeks. The Cruise Line may scramble to fill cabins and once again you swoop in and find a deal.

National State Parks – Beautiful and Affordable-

ParkCompared with any other vacation spot on earth, our national parks—and many state parks for that matter—deliver serious bang for the buck. Sure they normally charge an admission fee, but it’s per car not per person.  Lodgings inside a National Park can be around $200.00 per night, but once inside the park, the wildlife, trails, ranger talks, evening presentations, junior ranger programs, and just about everything else is on the house. Sometimes that can be a real deal.

The Biggest Secret In Travel

Airlines and hotels are willing to practically give away their inventory rather than see it go empty. That’s right. Airlines sell their seats at rock-bottom prices. Hotels do the same for their rooms. Why haven’t you heard this before? Because they don’t exactly go parading down the street announcing it to the world. Instead, they roll those empty airplane seats and hotel beds into package deals. When you book a package deal (such as the Real Deals that Budget Travel publishes each week), you’ll get a good rate on airfare and hotels, some meals, often guided tours, and some ground transportation. Don’t believe us? Take a look at a package deal and then try to book the airfare and hotel separately—the package will almost always be significantly less.

Trying to Get Away on a Romantic Getaway

Tell everybody! Sounds a little strange  when you’re trying to get some alone time with your Significant Other, but mentioning your romantic status to flight attendents, waiters, and hotel managers can yield complimentary wine, upgrades, private balconies, and other surprises.

Your Next Trip Can Also be Right at Your Fingertips

You don’t have to Fly or go on a Cruise to have a great vacation. Some of the best trips are to be had on America’s Highways. Budget travelers love ‘one tank escapes’. You can start by exploring locales within acar two-hour drive from your home. For most Americans, that includes gorgeous parkland, cool small towns, food you won’t find at home, and often the kinds of surprises that most of us travel for.
