Save on Labor Day Travel

Labor Day weekend is coming up, and for many of us that means a three day weekend. For some, that represents an opportunity to take advantage of things and get some travel in. Depending on where you want to go, the cost of the trip may get up there, quickly. Luckily, there are ways to make sure you aren’t breaking the bank during this travel time. Forbes recently provided these tips for saving money on Labor Day travel.

  • Last minute – Obviously, this type of strategy doesn’t work for everyone. But, if you haven’t made official plans yet, waiting for last minute deals with sites like Hotel Tonight can really save you money.
  • Camping – Avoid the costs of a hotel room by turning your trip into a camping adventure. Staying in your tent should be much cheaper than a room, even at a well equipped camping ground.
  • Gas – Using a gas application like GasBuddy can allow you to save big money on a road trip. This will help you know where the cheapest spots in the area are located.

With a little help, your Labor Day travel can be very affordable. In this case, waiting until the last minute may actually help you save. If you need some assistance, you can ask Smart Travel & Incentives of Lake Mary, Florida. They can provide travel vouchers, discounted travel rates and general expertise. Contact Smart Travel & Incentives, today, and see how easy it is to get started.

Adventure Travel

Many people talk about how much fun “adventure travel” can be. When you hear about these experiences, you might be inclined to believe that you have to jump out of planes or swim with sharks to fit this type of travel. However, adventure travel is really what you make of it, and it’s different for different people. You may be surprised how much fun, and how safe, your own experience can be. USA Today recently took a look at some of the myths surrounding adventure travel.

  • Dangerous – There is no doubt that you can make your adventure dangerous or risky. However, that doesn’t have to be how things go. Work with people who understand safety standards, and you’ll be in better shape.
  • Expensive – Obviously, you can make your trip as expensive as you want it to be. But, if you are smart about where you spend your money, you can keep things quite reasonable.
  • Fitness – You may think that you need to be in great shape to do these things. However, simply having a moderate fitness baseline should allow you to have fun.

Every adventure travel experience will be unique for the parties involved. If you want to make sure your next trip is a memorable one, you can get assistance from Smart Travel & Incentives of Lake Mary, Florida. They can help you with travel vouchers, discounted travel rates, general travel expertise, and more. Don’t take the chance of a wasted vacation!

Travel In Style, On A Budget

Have you ever wanted to travel like a millionaire? We all want to give that a try, until we look at our wallet. Some things are much easier said than done, aren’t they? But, what if there were ways that you could travel in style, and still stick to your budget? Before you write that off as impossible, check out these tips from a recent article from The Huffington Post.

  • No hotel – This works better if you’re traveling with a group, but there are many luxury rental properties available. Many of these can accommodate a dozen or more guests, so the cost can quickly be split into quite manageable figures.
  • Private plane – Believe it or not, if you find a last minute flight that fits in with your itinerary, you can fly on your own jet for an affordable rate.
  • Off-season – Everything costs more when travel is in high demand. If you are able to travel during a location’s off-season, you can get the same experience for much cheaper.

Following those tips and others can allow you to travel in style, while sticking to your budget. Most of us aren’t millionaires, but with a little planning, we can pretend to be for a little bit. Smart Travel & Incentives of Lake Mary, Florida would love to see you experience the trip of a lifetime during your next vacation. They can assist you with travel vouchers, discounted travel rates, general travel expertise, and more. Contact Smart Travel & Incentives, today, and get the planning underway.

Time To Book Holiday Travel

Most people are currently focused on getting their summer travel in while they can. August is a very busy month for vacations, and the last gasp before the school calendar starts up again. However, that doesn’t mean that traveling during the holidays shouldn’t be on the forefront of your mind, too. Do you and your loved ones hate paying big money to travel during Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, and other holidays? Business Insider recommends that you start to book those trips right now.

According to the study quoted in the piece, the best week to book your holiday travel is the week of August 10-16. That means, starting today, you can get the best possible prices for your upcoming trip. Some of the savings are pretty impressive, ranging from a 5.5% savings on Thanksgiving travel to an 18.7% savings on Christmas getaways. As the piece explains, you can still save even if you wait a little bit longer. However, the closer you get to the holidays, the more likely you are to have to spend a lot to make your vacation happen.

If your holiday travel plans are already set, you should get to work booking things.
