Frugal Friday: Travel Tips

August 15, 2008 at 1:27 pm 1 comment

Having just returned from a road trip to Kentucky, and planning for another one this fall, I have traveling on my mind. Here are a few things that I have found to help save money along the way:

Join AAA. You can make up the cost of your membership with the savings from just two or three hotel stays. In addition to saving on hotels, you can save on meals and tickets to various attractions. Always ask if the establishment offers an AAA (Triple A) discount – you just might be surprised.

Get a credit card. This is one of the few times that I will advocate getting a credit card but, I suggest having one to use only for gasoline purchases. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of credit cards available that offer you back percentages of your gas purchases. That 2, 3, or even 5% will help you cut your gas costs significantly. Just make sure you pay your bill on time!

Join rewards programs. By participating programs like Choice Privileges you earn points that can be redeemed for free hotel nights, gas cards, car rentals, etc.

Be sure to visit Biblical Womanhood for more great frugal ideas.
