10 Money-Saving Hacks to Cut Your Travel Costs

The rising prices of goods and services across the board have most Americans revisiting their travel plans. But, before you completely write off the possibility of vacation, here are ten ways to cut travel costs.

According to a Forbes Advisor/OnePoll survey, 91% of Americans said inflation has negatively affected their travel plans. As a result, people are being forced to travel less and cancel or postpone their existing vacation plans due to mounting inflationary pressure on household budgets.

Use Apps and Credit Card Points

Free shopping apps, such as Fetch Rewards, are a way to earn gift cards with little effort to help reduce travel costs. Download the app on your Apple or Android device and scan your shopping receipts for points. Fetch users can earn points on retail, grocery, and gas purchases.

Keep Travel Dates Flexible

Travelers looking for a deal need to be flexible with dates and times when searching. For example, early morning or red-eye flights are known to be less expensive, as well as traveling during the weekdays rather than the weekend.

Search Incognito and in the Afternoon

People may not realize that websites track their searches. Many people have encountered a situation where they go to the same site to check ticket prices, and the cost keeps increasing.

Consider Package Deals

Some websites offer package deals such as flight, hotel, and car rentals, which could be less expensive than booking everything individually. It’s worth pricing out different packages and comparing them when shopping.
