If you’ve got Thanksgiving travel plans, whether you’re going by plane or car, gas isn’t cheap these days. Why pay full price on all those flights, rentals and hotels, when you could be saving hundreds every trip? Before you set off to your next destination, here’s some travel pro tips that can help you spend less on getting where you need to go.
Book Rental Cars Online, Not At The Airport
One of the easiest ways to save on rental cars is also one of the simplest – booking well in advance. Rates are much cheaper for rentals booked a few weeks in advance of travel, and especially better than what you’d pay after stepping out of the airport, where you can get hit with a head-spinning number of extra fees. Booking ahead of time also lets you use your online Discount Program, where your membership nabs you 25-35% off from most major car rental companies.
If You’ve Gotta Take a Flight, Get a Good Deal
While an airline loyalty card might save you some money, the real deals are in using a service like Scott’s Cheap Flights to find flights that’ll cost hundreds less. By monitoring fares and compiling the best possible deals, frequent fliers can find tickets for hundreds less. You can access membership to premium flight-discount services like this from your PerkSpot portal, plus find other great deals like 15% off airport parking with ParkNFly from your discount program’s travel center.
Keep Your Eyes Open to Save on Hotels
Even more so than rental cars or flights, you can get great deals on hotels if you know where to look. One of the best ways to get big savings on hotel stays is through your private discount program, where you can regularly find top hotel rooms listed for 30, 40, or even 50% off for both domestic and international travel. Planning your travel around low-occupancy months can also help you save big on hotel stays, though that might not always be possible; but if you can schedule your travels away from tourist season, your wallet will thank you.
While grabbing all these great travel deals can save you hundreds or even thousands on getting around, there’s no denying that compiling the best flights, hotel bundles, and rental cars all in advance to get your savings can be a headache.
