Traveling Far – Take these Budget Tips to Safe Money When Traveling 

Plan Your Meals: If you are traveling far enough you will need to stop and eat and stretch your legs, consider planning your meals. You can either pack your meal or find places an economical restaurant. Groupon offers great discounts on restaurants all over the globe. If you plan ahead you can score a good deal possibly!! You can get a gift card for a discount or a coupon for $5 off $25 or something similar. You can do  this for hotel stays as well!

Pack Drinks and Snacks: Here is a great one, pack your own snacks and drinks. Take a cooler with drinks and snacks can be packed in sandwich bags. This is a great way to save money, instead of buying snacks at gas stations along the way.

Hotel Stays: This could be an option, smaller hotel chains sometimes offer you free upgrades (like free nights). If you have a reservation booked elsewhere, call them up and tell them you might change if you can get an additional night, and some hotels will accommodate this.

Vacation Homes: If you are staying at a destination for multiple days, you might consider a vacation home instead of a hotel. They can be a lot less money in the long run and more comfortable. Just google vacation homes for the area you will be staying to see if they have any available.
