Tips for Saving Money on Your Next Road Trip

Travel Tips

The weather is warming up, which means it’s time to start thinking about where you might head on your next road trip. If you’re on a budget, though, never fear — here is a look at some tips for saving money on your next road trip.


Save money on food. For many people, heading out on a road trip means hitting fast-food drive-thrus and gas stations for your grub. Rather than doing that, save money by planning ahead. Pack sandwiches in a cooler for your meals or stop by more mom-and-pop type restaurants instead of fast food places. You should also pick up snacks at the grocery store before you head out, as it will be significantly cheaper than buying the same items at a gas station.


Consider camping. Instead of booking hotels throughout the course of your road trip, considering camping instead. It’s a cost-effective way to spend the night — and it can sometimes be free if you’re driving through a national forest.


Choose the right car. If you have the option of choosing between multiple vehicles for your road trip, try and choose the one that gets the best fuel efficiency. That means you will be spending less money at the gas pump, saving you cash throughout your drive.
