We are living in a world where cross-country travel is more than just a thing we’re doing for fun. It became a necessity.
Even if we are doing it for touristic purposes, job-related reasons or just visiting a relative, we all have to choose a traveling method at a point. And there are a lot of companies that offer a large range of options and facilities in order to choose them over the competition.
But besides comfort and safety conditions, there is an important aspect that we should not neglect: price. It’s important to have a comfortable and safe trip but it’s equally important to save money. So how do you choose the cheapest option?
Below, we will present you some tips & tricks that will help you travel cheaper and how to even get a discount to the existing offers.
1) A first cheap traveling method would be by using the Expedia discount system. If you are going to their site and just search your traveling destination you will not get the best price. Instead, what you have to do is to search for the so called “deals”. From daily deals to last-minute deal, hotel deals or even vacation packages, you can now choose the cheapest one, or the one that suits your needs.
Another option is to use coupons and promotional codes. All you have to do is to register an account, sign in on their page, book a flight and choose to pay by a coupon or promotional code. If you don’t have one, there are a lot of options on their site, that offer promotional packages at a low cost, so you can benefit and save money for your trip.
2) Another great company that offers traveling discounts (coupons) is AirBnB.. Their promo system is almost the same as Expedia’s, but they focus more on the customers retention. For example, if you sign up an account on their website, you will automatically receive a $25 credit that you can use on any booking worth $100 or more. If other people create an account using your referral code, you will get a discount credit whenever they make a booking. You can also find coupons and promo codes on their website, at a much lower cost and with a very diversified offer. There are many others sites that offer coupon deals, so depending on your preferences and what deals you can find, you can opt for them instead.
3) If you’re traveling in a different city and you will need a car, consider using Hertz, a very expanded car rental agency that comes with great discount plans. In order to get the best price, you should study the price range and book only when the price drops to a minimum. Another trick when you rent a car is to avoid prepaid rental. You will have a small discount but the prepaid rental price is usually higher and it usually drops right before your trip starts.
Coupons and promo codes are also available for Hertz, and if you use a specialized site, you can even get a 50% discount.
In conclusion, traveling can be a lot more cheaper if you do your “homework”, search for the best deals, for the best discount plans and if choose well the moment you’re going to book. After all, the price of any service is relative, and it’s our duty to find the lowest one.
