AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Traveling during the holidays does not have to be stressful or expensive. Despite rising costs, vacationers can still enjoy a wonderful holiday away without breaking the bank, with just a little planning. Ultimate Excursions Travel reviews 4 easy ways any traveler can save money on holiday travel.
Plan ahead and book early
Most aspects of travel are about supply and demand. The best travel deals on flights and accommodations are already selling to top destinations around the globe. The longer vacationers wait to book, the higher the cost, as the demand increases and the number of spaces available dwindles. Travelers should also consider the day they book as well, as prices are generally higher during weekends then they are during the middle of the week.
Travel on off days
The highest costs associated with holiday travel are those days which are considered the peak travel days. During the holidays, these days are the day before the actual holiday and the day after. Instead of booking flights and rentals on these days, travelers are advised to stagger travel plans and save money. Flying on the actual holiday itself will generally get travelers the best deals however, simply avoiding the peak travel days will also save money.
Ship gifts in advance
Many vacationers will be carrying extra bags, often filled with gifts for loved ones during the holidays. Unfortunately, baggage fees continue to grow and can often destroy a perfectly planned travel budget. Depending on the carrier chosen, baggage fees can range from $25 to $75 dollars or even more. By shipping gifts and packages in advance, travelers can avoid these fees and the hassles associated with bringing them in the first place.
Make a budget and stick to it
The last easy way travelers can save money during the holidays is by making a budget and sticking to it. Some travelers think this is not something that is possible during the holidays however, the key to sticking to a budget is making it realistic. Budgeting extra money for that unexpected purchase or that extra night on the town will make any budget much easier to stick to, even during the holidays.
