It really wouldn’t do to waste money on unneeded services or things for that annual road trip to grandma’s for thanksgiving. It’s easy not to overspend when you take road trips. You can follow these steps to make your thanksgiving trip great yet cheap.
One of the biggest areas where money can be saved is on food. You could prepare some snacks or meals to bring for the trip. Rest stops can also be used to eat a snack or a picnic lunch.
If you are going to make stops to eat out along your trip, keep in mind that many restaurants offer either discount prices for children. There are even those that let kids eat for free. Make sure to research before the trip. Know where they are, what they offer and the savings can add up.
Filling the car with gasoline can be the most costly expense of your trip this year. You really should find ways to save money when it comes to gasoline. If you use a credit card for gas, then use one that offers rebates on gas. You can usually get credit card rebates at nationwide gas station chains. Keep in mind if you are using Mobil you will have to find and only use Mobil stations on the road in order to use your rebate.
You would need overnight stops and lodging if your destination is quite far. You should research lodging choices beforehand. Find quality hotels or motels that charge reasonable rates. If you are travelling with kids, then look for establishments that offer zero charge for kids.
Look for a hotel that offers the most complimentary services. Many hotels offer complimentary continental breakfasts and some have snack bars set up as well. Hotels may also be useful in offering coupons and discount rates for local restaurants and attractions.
You should also be safe. Traffic accidents increase over the holidays with lots of people on the road. Drive the posted speed limits. Bring a first aid kit, extra supplies and drinking water, and drive safely!
