Traveling with a family is expensive. It is incredibly fun to do though! On this page I want to share with you a couple of my favorite tips on traveling on a budget with your family in tow!
1. Firstly, you should always shop around for your vacations. There are more than enough comparison websites out there for you to dive into if you want to secure the best possible prices on just about anything from your flights all the way through to your hotel. This is probably one of the best ways to save money.
2. When it comes to attractions you may want to book online in advance. Most of the time this can save a significant amount of money compared to purchasing on the gate. In some cities you will also have a plethora of free attractions for you to sink your teeth into. They have the same fun level but will not put a dent in your bank account. A quick Google search will help you out here.
3. Steer Clear of restaurants whenever you can. These are obviously going to be expensive if you are planning on feeding numerous people at once. Your best bet is to try and eat in the hotel if possible (i.e. if you have cooking facilities) if not then traveling around and picking up a couple of cheap items from the supermarket should be more than enough in most cases. You can eat out from time to time. Just try not to make a habit of it!
4. Take regular breaks: This is a vacation. You are meant to rest from time to time. There is no need to try and throw everything in. You will get tired and you will spend a lot of money doing this.
