Tips for Traveling on a Budget

Two young sons watching parents load luggage in car trunk      Whether you’re taking your family on vacation or traveling solo, your next holiday doesn’t have to empty your bank account.
Here are five tips for traveling on a budget.

 1) Make a Budget. From transportation and accommodations to meals and entertainment, decide the amount you want to spend and plan your vacation accordingly.

2)    Choose Accommodations Wisely. Renting from a short-term housing provider adds value to your vacation in more ways than one. By offering you a fully equipped kitchen to prepare some meals as well as having access to on-site fitness centers and swimming pools, you’ll enjoy value-added entertainment without spending extra money.

 3)    Be Adventurous. Considering destinations that are a little off-the-beaten-path will help you maximize your budget as these locations are often looking to attract more tourists. For instance, traveling to smaller towns close to metropolitan cities, give you the opportunity to explore lesser-known areas while still enjoying tourist hot spots.

4)    Make A Deal. Contact the travel and tourism board in the city you’re traveling to. This is a great resource for scoring deals on everything from theatre and sports tickets to finding out about the latest restaurant openings and family-friendly dining spots.

Music Festival       5)  Go Local. Be on the look out for music festivals, street parties and carnivals that are often held during the summer months. These events are often free to the public and offer a variety of entertainment for all ages. Check the municipality’s online calendar before you travel to find out more about events wherever you’re heading.

Inevitably you can’t plan for every situation when you’re traveling the open road. That said, plan for those extra expenses by keeping a few dollars stashed in a safety fund. You’ll be happy you did when you find for those last minute concert tickets you just can’t pass up.

As part of the joint effort, each team member monitors a 24-hour guest service’s hotline (including evenings and weekends) to ensure your needs are always met.

When it comes to maintaining well-appointed suites, it’s not only up to the cleaning staff. Each guest services team member is in touch with housekeeping supervisors, to review the schedules and ensure that arrival, departures and guests’ special requests are completed in a timely manner.

In fact, it’s through their direct contact with guests that team members gather a sense of the items that will make life away from home, even better for everyone. 

While most days it may be a little hectic for guest services staff, there’s certainly never a dull moment. In fact, for many staff, it’s the diverse nature of the job that keeps them energized each day. Similar to the backstage of a concert or theatre performance, you never really know what goes on behind the scenes but when all goes according to plan, it makes for one incredibly memorable experience.
