Helpful Tips to Plan a Cheap Summer Vacation


There’s no need to surrender to high prices during your summer vacation. You should be able to spend time with your friends and family without having to worry about money – and that’s why we’ve come up with this list of tips to ensure that you stay within budget while living the good-life. Continue reading – your wallet will thank you!


Plan ahead. If you haven’t already done so, book your reservations as far in advance as possible to lock in the best prices. Some all-inclusive resorts and cruises will actually allow you to pay off your trip over a period of a few months to a year (if that would be better for your bank account). You’ll find that in-demand locations and resorts will soar in price during the summer months, so time is of the essence!


Don’t waste your money on food. If it’s possible – book a room or suite that includes a kitchen (or at the very least, a microwave.) This will allow you a couple nights of eating food you’ve prepared yourself, instead of having to spend $60+ per day at local restaurants and eateries. If you know that you won’t have access to a kitchen or microwave, be sure to bring along plenty of prepared food; granola bars, chips and a cooler for drinks.


Look for family-package deals, or travel with friends. Vacation packages are a great way to enjoy luxury for less. Surf the internet for family vacation resorts that offer a discount for a large group. Don’t have a big family? Ask some friends to tag along! It’s a “win-win.”


And last, but not least – don’t forget to tell SeaComm where and when you will be traveling. We want to ensure that out-of-the-area activity generated on your debit and credit cards is in fact you, and not a sign of fraud. Call us at (315) 764-0566, and tell us about your plans!
