Soon it will be possible to visit the US again, which is something that many people are looking forward to. But let’s face it, any faraway destination is likely to cost more than a trip to Butlins!
A trip to America offers plenty of once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. From busy cities to some of the world’s most awe-inspiring landscapes, there’s a little something for everyone. But can you enjoy a trip to the US on a budget? Here are some great money-saving tips to help you plan your perfect trip.
Find the cheapest time to fly to different destinations
By keeping your travel costs as low as possible, you can leave more money left for your overall trip. Firstly, you’ll want to look for cheap flights. Learn the cheapest time to fly to different destinations so you can take advantage of those cheap flights. You can get to some great destinations including New York, Chicago and even Las Vegas or Los Angeles for a fantastic price if you can be flexible or are willing to shop around.
Another option is to book a last-minute deal if you can find one. You’ll need to get your visa sorted, and ESTA services could help you take care of this when time is of the essence. You’ll also need to check COVID regulations to make sure you meet all of the entry requirements.
Get clever with your budget
A trip to the States can work on all kinds of budgets. If you want to enjoy cheap accommodation, consider staying in an Airbnb or a budget motel.
What’s gret about the US is that there are a lot of incredible places to eat. Embrace the foodie’s way of travelling the world and research all the tasty food places you want to try. You can eat at budget-friendly places for the majority of your trip, and save your funds for a couple of your top choices.
Plan your trip in detail so that you’ll know how much to budget for each day that you’re there. Don’t forget to keep some behind for some emergencies too.
Make the most of free things to do
The US is full of some interesting things to see and do, and if you research it cleverly, there’s a lot you could do for free. There are free things to do in each state that can help you balance out the rest of the things on your itinerary. Travel blogs are an easy way to find the best places to visit, and could even let you in on some hidden secrets that others don’t know about.
A visit to the US holds so many possibilities, a must for those who love to travel. From the many, many sights to the food you see on TV, it really is an amazing place to visit. If you budget carefully, you can enjoy a low-cost trip to the States and tick some great destinations off your bucket list.
