When it comes to lodging, travel, and entertainment budgets, they are always made a bit lighter when you have a few people throwing money in the pot.
If you are looking to travel on a budget, check out some of these money saving tips that are associated specifically with group travel.
Seek Out Group Rates
The best thing about traveling with a crowd is that you can get group rates for just about everything. Take advantage, and you could save thousands of dollars. Airlines, hotels, museums, and restaurants, they can all come complete with competitive group rates. All you have to do is ask!
Split the Costs Up Front
Many people plan group trips to save money but make the fatal flaw of assuming that once the trip is completed, they can divvy up the costs. The issue is that once the trip is over and everyone goes their separate ways, it is difficult to collect the money. Instead, come up with a plan before you leave. You can figure out who will pay for what or you can create a travel fund that everyone puts into before the trip which is to be used for all expenses.
Try to Make Homemade Meals
When you are traveling with a group, meals can be a hassle. Even if you find a restaurant that can seat everyone, you have to decide if the check is being split evenly or if everyone gets a separate check. You can save much of this hassle and money by making your own meals when possible. Go to the local grocery store and pick up bread, peanut butter and jelly, and chips: you’ll have a full lunch for a fraction of the cost.
Travel as a Group
The larger your group is, the harder it is to transport everyone from place to place. Make your life easier and cut costs by traveling by bus or another local form of public transportation. Buses are great because you can sit together as a group, avoid getting separated in traffic, and you’ll all get to your destinations at the same time. Plus, bus tickets are always fairly affordable.
