Travel twice in a year on a budget – Here’s how to do it!

It’s been my experience that most people tend to travel in the summer a lot, either to beach resorts or interior Alaska. Not that I wouldn’t go at other times of the year, but when you travel twice a year on a budget , you pretty much have to travel half way around the world at least once a year!

Step one : Have a great vacation, but not a horrible, fear- inspiring, money soaked experience that costs more than it’s worth. This doesn’t mean that you have to spend the entire vacation in the hotel, but keep it reasonable. I recommend you do a little research about the area you will be visiting.

Step two : Do less traveling! Research business card vacation packages, and do a little comparison shopping between them. Browse the web, talk to friends and associates who have been there before. This will help you get an idea of the best places to stay, and the best days to travel.

: Legacy account? Many companies still don’t package all their travel into one account, and you may find you still have to pay yourself. If you don’t want to pay yourself, then you may want to look at a services such as Avis, where you can buy your hotel rooms and groceries ahead of time, and just sit back and wait for your big group to arrive. Another great option is a condo rental, where instead of your group having to pay their own meals, you can all split a home with others who are making the trip.

When you travel with legacy, you take care of all of the planning andicky stuff yourself. You find the best rates (and you can save a lot of money) when you personally book your rooms, get the reservations at the best restaurants, and figure out the best days to fly, when you are going to be on vacation. You take care of the cosmetic things, like your glasses or your jewelry, so you can have something to show off when you get back to school. You make the reservations and package them ourselves, so you aren’t going to feel guilty about leaving it up to chance that your group gets hotel rooms or a great flight. You also know exactly how the trip is going to be run, so you can weigh that against the cost and decide to go that route, or take another route.

So you see that there are pros and cons to both, staying put or traveling with legacy. The jury is out on that, so I’ll let you decide. But I think that the cons far outweigh the pros on almost every occasion. You just learn to take a new perspective on everything. After all, what are you waiting for?
