Plan your vacation for less with our best budget vacation tips.

Travel can be expensive. But don’t let a lack of money keep you from seeing the world. Instead, check out our best budget vacation tips to help you make the most out of your next trip!

Choose an inexpensive destination

In a world as big as ours, you’ll never run out of places to visit. Why not choose your destination with your budget in mind?

Check out these budget travel ideas from Forbes. Consider destinations as diverse as Toronto, Canada, Houston, TX, and Xian, China. These suggestions are based on airfare trends as well as prices on the ground.

Off-season travel offers a smart way to see more expensive destinations. We promise: the Eiffel Tower will be amazing even if you use one of our best budget vacation tips to make it possible to see this Wonder of the World.

Use travel sites like Kayak and SkyScanner to help you find the best deals for vacations from your starting point. You can browse the best deals and even set up price alerts so you’ll know when it’s time to book. You’ll also find guides and tips to help you make the most out of your vacation.

Road trip to your destination to save on airfare. What’s more American than the road trip? Plan your route to suit your interests using sites like Roadtrippers. Vacations like these remind us that the journey is just as important as the destination.

Find Deals on Accommodations

Budget travel doesn’t have to mean bland accommodations.

Check out Airbnb for budget-friendly deals on places to stay. With accommodations from cabins to chalets to treehouses, you’re sure to find an experience that suits you. And using Airbnb’s search tools, you can narrow your price range to suit your budget. Plus, they often offer coupons for $35-$40 off your next stay.

Sites like Travelocity can help you find the best deals at hotels and more. After you book, you can still keep an eye on prices and even ask for price adjustments. This might be our favorite best budget vacation tip!

Experience the outdoors with a tent vacation! It’s not for everyone, but camping allows you to stay within your budget and get off the beaten path. Choose private campgrounds with amenities such as pools and cafes and still pay much less than a hotel. Or consider National Forest campgrounds for less than $15/night for a more rustic experience.

Eat on the Cheap

Get creative with your food budget.

If you’ve got a kitchen, use it! Cook and prep meals at your home base to stretch your dollars.

Resort area grocery stores are convenient but expensive. Plus you’ll pay higher prices just for the luxury of food-shopping on vacation. Instead, order your groceries from Amazon to be delivered right to your door, wherever you are. Who wants to spend their precious vacation hours at the grocery store, anyway?

Have a picnic! Pack your lunch, find a lovely spot, and really enjoy where you are. No need to tip your waiter.

Taking advantage of the best budget vacation tips doesn’t mean you can’t eat out. Find discounts by checking Groupon, Travelzoo, Living Social & Restaurant.com. You may discover places you would not have found on your own. And you’ll eat for less.

Save your restaurant budget for lunch or brunch when prices are lower. Yes, it is possible to dig into all the local cuisine for a smaller price tag.

Other Tips

Don’t bother with currency exchanges and traveler’s checks. Instead, use an ATM for the best exchange rate. You’ll probably even enjoy entering all those zeros when withdrawing 1 million rupiahs in Bali!

The journey begins long before you leave. Extend your vacation vibe by savoring the experience of planning using our best budget vacation tips. Check out our Budget Travel board over on Pinterest for more suggestions.

Is your timeshare making it impossible for you to vacation on a budget? According to Consumer Reports, the average timeshare week costs MORE than it would to just book a week in the exact same place. That’s the opposite of budget travel. This is why Primo came to be. We help you exit your timeshare so you can make more out of your life.

Frequently Asked Questions ?

How does PMG get me out of my timeshare contract?

PMG is not a resale, transfer, or donation company. We are consumer advocates—we help to negotiate the release of your timeshare contract obligation. We do not buy, sell, or rent your timeshare. Simply put, we help you to get out of your timeshare contract forever.

How long does the process usually take?

Usually less than 12 months, but it all depends on your situation. If your timeshare is free and clear with no mortgage, then the process may only take 3-9 months.

Speak to your advisor about the time, and what delays the resorts have put into place to prevent timeshare owners from departing their ownership. If you have a mortgage or past due maintenance fee, the process takes more time.

How much is my timeshare worth?

This is probably going to hurt, but whether you paid $5,000 or $50,000 for your timeshare, the IRS values all timeshares as worthless investments. In addition, that timeshare would have negative value due to the annual maintenance fee bill which compounds year after year. That is until PMG helps you cancel your timeshare.

Can I use your service if I still have a balance owed on my mortgage?

Yes. Whether you bought your timeshare 20 days ago or 20 years ago, PMG has a solution for you and is here to help.

Will my name be off the timeshare?

Yes! Permanently! GUARANTEED!

In addition to getting me out of my timeshare, can you recover the money I’ve already spent on mortgage payments and maintenance fees?

While we are able to recover money in rare cases, beware of any timeshare cancellation company that entices you with the promise of fund recovery. The truth is, timeshares are loath to give back the money they’ve already taken.

Are your consumer advocates really “consumer advocates”, or is that just a fancy word for salesperson?

Because most of our clients have had their trust betrayed by timeshare salespeople, we understand how some consumers can become a bit jaded. When you call us for a consultation, that’s exactly what you get, a consultation. At PMG, our job is not to sell you; our job is to help you get out of your timeshare. Which is why we have numerous 5-star reviews and an “A” (excellent) rating from the BCA.

Why should I choose PMG to get me out of my timeshare?

We pride ourselves on providing our customers with the best customer service in the industry. When you contact our company, you speak to a live person, not an automated system or voicemail. We go above and beyond for our customers by helping you to protect your credit and even repair your credit if needed. We offer a 100% money back guarantee, and we can provide documented proof of our success in helping customers just like you.

What happens after I sign up with you? Will I be apprised of your progress?

At PMG, we pride ourselves on our hands-on, boutique-style customer service, so every new client is assigned a case manager whose job is to keep you in the loop throughout the entire cancellation process. Your case manager is always just a phone call away.

How much is your fee?

Not all timeshare experiences are created equal. Some are more complicated than others, and every situation is different. That’s why our trained timeshare elimination consultants will ask you a series of questions designed to determine exactly what needs to be done to terminate your timeshare, how long it will take, and how they can best advocate for you. We will always seek the most cost-effective route for you.

What if I still have more questions?

Canceling a timeshare contract is not a cookie cutter process. With each situation being unique, once you complete the form below an experienced consumer advocate will call you today to discuss your options.
