Luxury travel does not have to break the bank. When you work with experts like Tammy Fisher Travel, you can experience five-star amenities at a price tag that pleases the wallet. From corporate travel to luxury vacations, our team is well-versed in executing the perfect trip no matter the budget.

In this post we’ll explore a few ways you can be a budget-savvy traveler without compromising on quality.

Top 5 Tips to Travel on Budget

1. Travel Packages

Often bundling your flights, hotel, and car rental into one vacation package can save you money—and headache—instead of booking each separately. Many airlines, cruises, and major hotel chains provide these package deals so check accordingly. Some clients end up saving hundreds of dollars this way, so it’s well worth investigating.

Travel agents have access to travel packages and bundled deals that are not available on other discount websites, so it can often pay to hire someone to find travel discounts for you.

2. Flexible Timing and Destinations

Flights on Fridays and Sundays are generally more expensive than those mid-week, so if your schedule allows for flexibility, that’s one big way to save money. Hotels often offer deals encouraging guests to stay during the week instead of the busier weekends, so you can find savings there too.

If you are flexible on destinations that’s another avenue to explore for cost savings. A lot of clients want somewhere tropical with a beach, so our agents will explore places that may be off-peak for tourists, but still sunny and warm.

3. Loyalty Reward Programs

Want to stay at a five-star resort for free? Loyalty reward programs provide great benefits like free hotel nights and airfare. If you are a frequent traveler, you can rack up airline miles to help you get to that next destination faster. Hotels have similar loyalty programs, and the big chains have a footprint across the globe offering free nights to frequent customers. If you do not travel enough to build up miles and hotel nights organically, there are also credit cards that offer great travel benefits that you can explore.

4. Be Adventurous

Stepping out of your comfort zone is a good way to experience a new city like a local, while also saving money. From eating street food to taking an overnight train, there are a lot of interesting ways to experience your destination without spending the big bucks.

No matter what your budget is, opening yourself to new experiences will only make your trip more memorable. If you need help uncovering that great hole in the wall food truck, or where the locals shop, an experienced travel agent can help.

5. Freebies!

Many places offer tourists incredible discounts, or even free activities. From your hotel happy hour to that first-class flight upgrade, knowing where to look is key. Saving money on activities simply takes a quick Google search to uncover what’s going on while you are visiting. Our clients have experienced art and music festivals, wine tastings, museum openings, and more without spending a dime.
