5 Tips for Cheap Holiday Travel 2013

Here are BluePromoCode's top 5 ways you can save money over the holidays as you travel around the country and enjoy those vacation days!


‘Tis nearly the season for merrimaking, family, way too much food and of course, plenty of travel. And regardless if you’re traveling across the country to see the sights in New York City or just up the coast to see grandma, saving money while vacationing is universally a welcome idea.

1. Save on the getting there. Getting from Point A to Point B can often be the most expensive part of a vacation, what with airplane tickets rising and the always stinging price of gasoline. This holiday season, don’t recklessly throw your cash at overpriced methods of travel. Instead, search sites like Travelocity or Kayak for the best deals. Also, daily deal sites like Groupon offer travel discounts and promotions that can easily be redeemed. Search these sites to see if the deal of a lifetime is waiting for you!

2. Save on a place to stay. Right after the actual travel, having a place to stay is the second most expensive part of most trips. For the 2013 holiday season, try something out of the ordinary like booking with HomeAway and get the most bang for you buck. HomeAway makes it possible for travelers to rent properties that have been listed by other people just like you! The whole experience is simple and provides for a more homely feeling vacation than you’d normally get in a hotel.

3. Save on seeing the sights. Once you’ve gotten to the city of your choice and finally have a place to sleep, it’s now time to get out there and see the sights! The best way to see the sights in most major US cities is with Smart Destinations. They allow tourists to customize sightseeing packages based on the things that they really want to see. If you happen to be heading to New York City over the 2013 holiday season, head over to Gray Line New York and book a sightseeing trip from the NYC sightseeing authority!

4. Save on eating the best. Don’t kid yourself, eating awesome dishes is one of the best parts of traveling to a new city (or an old favorite). As you travel this holiday, make sure that you’re eating and maintaining that weight for a reasonable cost! Sites like Living Social provide local deals that customers can take advantage of anywhere in the US. Other coupon sites like Groupon will also have deals ready for you to eat up!

5. Save on being dressed appropriately. Finally, don’t travel to a city this holiday season and not be appropriately dressed. New York City is cold in December but Los Angeles is warm! If you need a new jacket or some shorts for your 2013 winter vacation, don’t be afraid to do your shopping online. Hundreds of daily deal sites across the web specialize at bringing consumers the very best brands for as cheap as possible. Find one you with a style you’re into, like JackThreads or Beyond the Rack, and shop until you can’t anymore!
