Traveling with kids can be expensive:
Providing and caring for a family is tough enough in a stationary location, but it’s all the more difficult in transit or staying in an unfamiliar location. Spending money on airfare, accommodations, car rental, food, attraction tickets, Souvenirs and more can add up very quickly. Looking for ways to save on each but not lose quality is every vacation planners goal. So here are a few ways we found to get a little more out of your next Orlando vacation.
Take advantage of every deal you can:
We would never call you a sucker for missing out on every possible deal. But someone might! And you don’t want that. You don’t want that at all! The internet is just filled with deals waiting for a non-sucker like you to scoop them up. But don’t take our word for it. Listen to Isaac Diaz, president of Starmark Vacation Homes (@starmarkhomes):
“As a person with a family with two kids, a travel blog writer, and owner of a vacation home company, here are a few tips about keeping costs down while traveling.
“Accommodations can be the next most expensive cost for travel. To get the most space and bang for your buck, look for a vacation rental property, like a condo, townhome, or private pool home. You get way more space than a hotel room at about the same price or less. 3 bedroom 2 bath condos can cost about $75 to $150 per night, while a 3 bedroom private pool home can be $150 to $199 per night and you still get resort style amenities at the community. Companies like Starmark Vacation Homes, Airbnb, and HomeAway all offer specific homes in a large list of destinations.
“For attraction tickets, I suggest you look for a reputable local ticket/attraction company rather than going directly to the venue. Usually they provide discounts and packages that work best for the family. Expedia local expert and Fubble.com have created local ticket options before you even arrive at your destination.”
Traveling on a budget is a tough game, and traveling on a budget with kids is like playing that game on hard mode. But follow all of these tips, and your wallet will be as happy as your family!
