The world has certainly become a smaller place and traveling to far
corners of the globe on business or vacation is fast becoming
commonplace. If you’d like to jump onto the traveling bandwagon but are
worried about not having the budget for it, here are few tips for having
a great holiday while still managing to not break your bank balance.

Major traveling expenditures include airfares, car rentals and hotel
stay. Take a look at some of the ways you could save money in each of the
three categories.

Saving Money on Airfare

Avoid traveling during the holiday season when fares are most expensive
and many flights are blacked-out even for frequent fliers. The earlier
you book your air tickets the higher the chances of finding the lowest
airfare. The internet is the best place to look for low fares and special
deals offered by different airlines to various destinations. Keeping your
travel dates flexible increases your chances of finding the best deal
possible.

Saving Money on Hotel Stay

Book your hotel s soon as you’ve finalized your travel plans. Cheaper
hotel rooms tend to get sold off earliest. However do compare package
deals of various hotels as well as the facilities that are included. You
may find that a cheaper hotel may not offer you money-saving extras such
as airport transfers, room amenities and meals or at the very least
breakfast. Avoid booking hotels that are located in the heart of the
city- they will almost certainly charge you a high premium for the
convenience.

Saving Money on Car Rentals
Book the smallest sized car that you would need for your stay. Larger
sized cars have higher hire charges and guzzle more gas. Compare rental
rates online and book your car as much in advance as possible to get the
best deal. Compare daily rates as well as weekly rates. Avoid booking a
rental car at the airport. They charge exorbitant rates and add huge
surcharges.

Take a look at some of the travel package deals offered on the internet.
You could save a bundle by booking one that includes airfare, hotel stay
and car rental.
