Traveling can get expensive at times. Add in traveling around the holidays and you’re looking at even more expenses. What are some ways that we can be cost-efficient this year while still traveling to see our loved ones?
It’s time to really start thinking about holiday travel and a few suggestions that I have for holiday travel this year is:
1) Book everything refundable.
- Be sure that if you need a refund or unforseen circumstances happen, that a refundable booking is available to you.
2) Insurance Policies
- Cancel for any reason insurance policies
- If your trip is non-refundable, get an insurance policy that allows you to cancel for any reason.
- Peril insurance
- 2 providers that I have found that provide peril travel insurance (included in links below). You can select a policy specifically outlining these perils such as if you have a rock hit your windshield in the rental car, it covers the car.
- When looking at these insurance policies, be sure that it is worth getting a policy to begin with. For instance, if you found cheap plane tickets but they are non-refundable, it may be worth it to get the insurance policy.
3) Don’t travel during holiday season
- This is another idea if you are trying to be cost-efficient.
- Choose to travel in January and February to see family after the holiday is over – rates are typically lower.
- If you do travel during the holiday season, see if you can stay with family or even drive to them rather than fly.
Plan ahead but stay flexible during this holiday season! What are some ways that you are being cost-efficient while traveling this holiday season?
