Ways to Save Money On a Road Trip

Ways to Save Money On a Road Trip

 

There are plenty of ways to save money on a road trip, and it starts by utilizing what’s already available to you. Check out these simple methods to make the most of your vacation!

Free Attractions

Taking advantage of all the free attractions your destination has to offer is a great way to have fun and save money simultaneously. Take the time to get a guidebook and look through it to see what free activities your area has to offer. Types of free attractions might include music festivals, historic sites, and museums.

Avoid Toll Roads

Avoiding toll roads altogether is one of the best ways to save money while traveling. Unfortunately, knowing all the toll roads that you’ll encounter on a long road trip is nearly impossible. That’s why we have technology!

GPS apps and in-vehicle navigation systems give drivers a choice between multiple routes. Most routes are similar in time traveled and go through the same areas. The only major difference is one option will allow you to avoid toll roads.

Slow Down

Fuel economy tends to gradually decrease at speeds above 50 mph. Traveling the speed limit already reduces fuel economy, but going over the speed limit can result in more fuel stops. If you get caught exceeding the speed limit, you could face hefty fines as well. Slow down and enjoy the savings!
