With the changing economy and worries about job security, getting away for that necessary recharge is getting harder to do. Add in the challenge of getting multiple schedules aligned and agreeing on a destination, it’s a wonder we ever take vacation at all!
We all still need to get away from the phone, crackberry, TV, texting, computer, Internet, fax machine, barking dog, nosy neighbor; do I need to go on? And you know as well as I do that a good vacation makes the family stronger. Time spent together is what will be remembered.
For those of us who can’t afford to spend three weeks in Vale and four in Maui every year, with all the ski and snorkelingaccessories that will sit in the garage until the next yard sale, there are still some discount family vacations to be had, and discount doesn’t mean that they can’t be memorable and exciting.
Tourism and travel are still big business; many places make the majority of their income based on tourism. Travel destinations want you to go there and spend your money. There are fantastic deals to be made on discount vacation vacations including destination packages, which include travel and boarding and often food and drink and sometimes entertainment.
Often travel companies can put together package deals that give you group rates for purchasing these combinations. For example, if you purchase your plane ticket and hotel/resort through the same agency you can often receive a discount on one or both items. If you purchase separately and directly from the provider, you increase your chances of not only paying full price, but overpaying. Anytime you are checking prices, let them know that you are looking for budget-conscious family deals and ask if there are any options to lower the price. Consider amenities with a built-in kitchen to avoid the high cost of eating out for all your meals, or opt for an all inclusive destination where the meals are included. Also consider lodging where kids stay free.
Traveling with a family can be simpler and cheaper if you search out discount family vacations. Theme parks, resorts and cruises encourage entire families to vacation together and often offer greater discounts if you mention that you will be traveling as a family. They also realize that the amenities they offer have a better changes of meeting your needs due to the wider age and interests a family traveling together provides. More business for them and more fun for your family.
Several guides are available that are filled with cost-saving travel tips. More than a commercial gimmick, these are tried-and-true tip packages that can save you hundreds of dollars! One of the best discount travel books available is The Travel Secrets Guide.
So don’t think you have to have a stay-cation or or hang out and watch the grass grow. Using discount family vacations you can still make it a vacation to remember!
