News 4 Wake Up! showed you four deals on different quick and easy “zip trips” around Western New York. Once you choose your destination, how can you plan the best vacation on a budget?
News 4’s Teresa Weakley spoke with Angie Wawrzynek, Manager at AAA Travel and Insurance Center in Kenmore to discuss money saving trips for traveling with your family. Here are some of her tips:
- Plan how much gas you’ll need for your trip. You can budget fuel costs and plan fuels stops at aaa.com.
- Seek hotels that include free WiFi and/or breakfast.
- Find a hotel with a pool or kid’s activities so entertainment will be included in your cost.
- Make a back up plan. If you’re experiencing delays at an attraction or an unexpected closure, go to your back-up plan to avoid frustration and get the most out of your vacation.
