6 Quick Tips To Budget Your Thanksgiving Road Trip

Trip on the road

The annual road Trip to Grandma's home with your family isn’t the occasion to be misspend your money on superfluous elements or services. Road trips are the class of vacation where saving money is feasible and easy to do.
Below you can find 6 easy to follow quick tips so that your Thanksgiving road trip will be one of the greatest and low-cost you have ever taken.
1.    Let’s start by saving money on food. Pack your home made snacks and        perhaps even a picnic meal or two before departing from your home.
2.    Take stops. As a matter of facts rest stops are great for stretching your        legs, relax your mind (especially if you are the driver) and enjoy a              small picnic lunch with your children who can also play around and              discharge some energies accumulated by seating too long.
3.    If you don’t want to carry a bag with your own food then you can make        stops and eat out along your trip. Many restaurants offer discount                prices for children and some offer deals where kids eat for free. You              can search online before leaving for your trip. If you know where they          are, what they offer then the savings tot up. If you have a navigation          system in your car then it’s even easier since you can store-in multiple        road stops and locations.
4.    Filling the car tank can be expensive for your trip even considering the        gas low prices lately. When filling always try use a credit card that                offers discounts on the amount of gas purchased. On average,                      nationwide gas station chains offer credit card rebates to frequent               clienteles. Keep in mind that if you are using a specific brand credit card       then you need to find and use only those specific brand gas stations on       the road in order to use your rebate. Again try to do you search before         leaving.
5.   During some extended road trips an overnight stop and lodging might be       necessary. You can use online resources when planning your road trip to       find a quality hotel or motel offering reasonable nightly rates. You can          also check here:

6.    Another way to save some money is to get a complimentary breakfast.        Check for a hotel that offers this and eventually even free Wi-Fi.                  Extended Stay America offers free stay for children under 17 when        accompanied. They also have a kitchen in every room where you can            cook your meals and probably this is more interesting if you’re                    traveling with infants and toddlers.
Finally, drive safely. Traffic accidents escalate over the holidays when lots of people are on the road.
You can take a first aid kit, extra snacks supplies and extra drinking water just in case of a long traffic jam.
Till the next one….have a fun and safe Thanksgiving trip!
