Save on travel this Winter
(NC) — Looking for ways to get the best travel value this winter? Days Inns Canada offers some hints to help save you money:
Budget: Create a realistic budget for you and your family and be sure to stick to it. Include food and beverage costs, all travel costs and entertainment. Be on the lookout for travel deals such as best rate guarantees, vacation packages and family discounts.
Be practical: Saving money on accommodations can help you free up funds for a special dinner or extra excursion. Plan on staying somewhere that provides great value for a fair price.
Plan ahead: Haven't booked your holiday travel yet? It's time to stop waiting and book to avoid disappointment. To stay within your budget, use the Internet to gather information and look for a hotel where amenities such as breakfast and Internet are included in the price.
Pick your dates wisely: Look at your itinerary and avoid peak travel dates, if possible. Sometimes the cost savings are worth taking an early or late flight. If you're driving, plan ahead to avoid jam-packed highways.
Location, location, location: Make it easy on yourself and your wallet by booking a hotel near the action, whether it's close to downtown, the mall or the slopes. Not only will this save you money, but you'll have more time to explore your destination.
Family first: Travelling with kids? Choose a national hotel chain such as Days Inn where kids 12 and under stay free when sharing a room with a guardian. Keep the family entertained on a budget by choosing a hotel with kid-friendly amenities like an indoor pool and waterslide.
