Planning a Spring Break trip can be exciting. Planning where to stay can be tricky. While most think of sandy beaches and crowded hotel rooms for Spring Break, that’s not what everyone is doing. Some are renting a cabin in the mountains, near national monuments or on the beach of a quiet lake. Renting a cabin can open many possibilities about locations and things to do. Renting a cabin can save your Spring Break budget, so you have money left for other things.
When selecting a location for renting a cabin, you need to consider the local attractions. You can save on time, fuel and food expenses by renting a cabin close to attractions and activities. As you narrow your cabin search, think about travel. If you are able to drive there, you’ll need to have a vehicle in proper working order. If you will be flying, factor in the cost of tickets and car rentals to the Spring Break budget.
The Internet is a great tool to bargain hunt and compare when renting a cabin. However, I’ve found often there are unadvertised specials or other discount, if you call the location directly. In the rare chance their price is higher, buy online.
A quick travel tip, I’ve saved money with. Ask the person booking your reservations for coupons to local restaurants and attractions. Sometimes they have some, other times they don’t. It’s worth asking. Also, go online and look at places you plan to visit. There could be coupons for things like admission and food. Contact the local Chamber Of Commerce, too. Just a little time online or the phone could save you big on Spring Break or other vacation trips.
Here are a few examples of websites that show some idea of places you could go, things you could do and give you an idea of pricing. Also, these websites are very informational about what they offer. Sites like these save you time and show that the people running the location, do care which might be an indication of the service you’ll receive.
