Planning a trip

Everyone likes to go on trips. Ideally, we prefer trips that are fun but not too expensive. Do you agree with this? Then read on! Here we give you 5 unique tips to plan your trip as cheaply as possible. These tips can save you a lot of money on your next getaway!

1 Groupon

Do you like trips to amusement parks and zoos or going to the spa? Do you often find these excursions very expensive? Then Groupon comes up with the solution! This website offers unique discounts for all kinds of excursions, including abroad! For example, you can book hotels or excursions on vacation at bargain prices. Another website that offers such great discounts is Vakantieveilingen. Here you can bid on all kinds of trips, hotels, products and so much more. So, of course, you may be able to buy a nice getaway for a bargain price. It’s also fun to buy a trip on Groupon or Vakantieveilingen as a gift for someone else! You would make us very happy with it.

2 Day Pass

If you plan to visit many tourist attractions, such as museums or (theme) parks, on vacation, it is best to check whether a day pass and/or weekly pass is valid. With such an admission pass, for example, you can gain admission to several museums in one day. We bought a three-day pass in Los Angeles like this and it saved us a tremendous amount of money on excursions. The price of such an entrance pass is usually slightly higher than the entrance price of the most expensive excursion. So without a doubt you will benefit if you want to see a lot in a few days.

3 Season

If possible, plan your outings outside of certain seasons. For example, during vacation periods it is often more expensive to go to certain theme parks. Also during the hot summer months, certain outings are more expensive.v Just think of a weekend trip to the sea. If you can, better plan your trip outside of vacation periods and holidays. Not only will it save you money, but it will also be considerably quieter.

4 Parking

Without you possibly realizing it, even the parking for your favorite getaway can be a bite out of your budget. Therefore, do not park in the parking lot of an amusement park itself, but park just outside it (if possible). Indeed, parking at (most) parks often costs a lot of money. It can quickly save you 10 euros.

5 Lunch box

There are many people who never bring their own food or drink when they go on an outing. Granted, it is easier to buy food and drink locally but it will cost you (much) more money. We usually choose to bring our own (a little) food and drink when we go on an outing. Certainly making and taking a packed lunch in advance has saved us a lot of pennies.
