Travel doesn’t have to be expensive or uncomfortable. One way to save money when you travel is to go at off-peak times. This yields not just a lower rate, but often, fewer crowds as well.


When you book rooms or campsites, look for discounts. Another option is to choose an entry-level room or site rather than an upgraded one – you’ll still get to stay where you want, but you’ll pay less.


After you come home from your vacation, check your credit report to make sure your credit card information isn’t still on vacation — with a thief. Protecting your identity while traveling is one of the best things you can do to keep your trip’s budget tight.
