Anyone who has done any sort of traveling knows it can be incredibly expensive after booking the hotels and flights, shelling out for dining and transportation once there, and covering all the other miscellaneous expenditures.
As if budgeting for expenses wasn’t difficult enough, travelers also have to carefully budget their time. Unless you plan to be gone for several weeks, chances are you won’t make it to every exhibit and attraction that you’d like to, but if you plan properly you can make the most of your time. Purchase all your attraction tickets online ahead of time to save yourself from wasting precious time in line.
If cost is your largest concern, there are plenty of things you can do to save. For starters, be aware of any discounts your credit card provider may offer — especially when it comes to airline partnerships — as well as AAA discounts when renting cars (or sometimes even at hotels).
