Find out how to save on summer travel deals with these tips.
Along with the warm weather, summer brings the perfect time to travel. Whether you’re taking a weekend trip or a month-long vacation, it’s important that you’re ready for your travels. It’s especially important to be prudent of your vacation costs. When it comes to traveling, use these tips to ensure that you get the best rates.
Find the Cheapest Day of the Month.
Still making your travel plans? Certain days of certain months tend to be cheaper than others. When flying in July, the 4th is the cheapest travel day with the 3rd and 5th in a close second. In August, the 22nd is the cheapest travel day, and in September the 12th is the least expensive day. Pick your travel days accordingly so that you’re better able to travel affordably. Aside from Independence Day, avoid travel in July if possible, as it’s the most expensive month to travel during the summer.
Choose Travel Days Wisely.
During the summer, some days offer cheaper flights than others. Flights that take place in the middle of the week tend to be cheaper year-round. However, when it comes to summer travel, Tuesdays and Wednesdays are the best travel days. They offer the best values and can help you save up to $60 on average. Traveling on a Sunday tends to be more expensive, but Sundays are the best day to book your travel plans. It also helps to book your travel at least 21 days in advance.
Enjoying the Great U.S.A.
Why not visit one of the U.S. National Parks? Or visit all of them? You can get a pass for every national park for a one-time fee of $80, or for just $10 if you are a senior citizen. Apply for one soon because it takes several weeks for processing.
Instead of the usual hotel, you might want to try Airbnb. In a price comparison report by Busbud, it found that across more than 20 cities throughout Australia, Europe, and North America, Airbnb was less expensive than the conventional hotels.
