This week we're going to respond to the request by Diana Banana to tell our favorite tips for saving money while traveling.
First, I've already written about how we fly free with Southwest Airlines by using their credit card through our office. That is probably the biggest money saver we've ever done. Check it out and see if it could work for you.
Lastly, the most typical way we save money while traveling, is to eat lunch and dinner from the grocery store rather than at a restaurant. We have a typical menu for both breakfast and lunch that includes cold cereal, milk, yogurt, bananas, sandwich fixings, chips, juice and cookies. (All of the perishables are kept cold either in the hotel fridge or in a garbage can filled with ice kept covered in the tub.) Saving the total cost of both breakfast and lunch each day makes going out for dinner not seem so expensive. And since we could never be mistaken for "foodies," we tend to choose reasonable establishments for our late meals.
How do stretch your travel dollars??
