Is there any budget-saving tips for those who want to hit the open road?

With hotel prices back to pre-pandemic levels (and higher) as travel demand spikes, it is worth one’s while to plan ahead and explore accommodation options before the trip, and not just wing accommodations while on the road. If one is flexible, then traveling during off-peak times, not during peak school vacation, can help get some really good rates on accommodation and better experiences in restaurants and destinations that are otherwise packed avos, nuts, trail mixes can help cut down on that extra meal, which can add up, so make sure to carry food that can keep the hunger at bay for as long as possible. If the road trip is longer, using an app to track the best places to fill up can help ease the burden on the wallet. Credit card discounts can save you money at the pump. You can investigate offers in your area, at your destination, and en route. If you are flying, book early. The flight times of early morning and late night flights are not as popular. When you compare fares, check out all the airports in the area. Prices can be very high or very low. Don’t purchase food and beverages in airports. The prices charged are some of the highest you can pay. Robert Hartwig is a professor at the University of South Carolina.
