If you’re considering an end-of-summer road trip but want to keep to a strict budget while on the road, there are several things you can do to save money while still enjoying a memorable adventure with your family or friends. Here are a few money-saving tips courtesy of your friends at Jordan Toyota.
Travel With Friends
Rather than going it alone, pack a few of your besties into your RAV4 and hit the road. When you travel with multiple people, you can split the cost of gas, lodging, and meals between all of you, which means you’ll all save money.
Stick To Your Budget
Determine how much money you can spend each day on meals, entertainment, and lodging, and make sure you stick to it. Keep a spreadsheet where you can log your expenses; you can easily do this on the road using an app like Google Sheets.
Stay Close To Home
Sure, your Highlander can travel great distances, but you’ll save a lot of money if you stick close to home. Rather than traveling to places where you need to stay overnight and eat out for most meals, consider planning a series of family-friendly day trips so you can sleep at home and pack lunches to save money. Look for attractions like museums, zoos, and hiking hotspots that your whole family will enjoy.
Pack Your Snacks
Gas station snacks can be tempting, but by bringing your own you’ll save money and can plan to eat more healthfully.
