Is it just us or has this summer flown by? If you haven’t had time to turn your OOO notifications on, it’s not too late. Last-minute summer travel doesn’t have to break the bank.
Whether you’re a serial travel procrastinator or you’ve been working too hard, we’ve got last-minute travel hacks to end this sweltering season with a bang.
Use your rewards
If you have a credit card with great travel perks, you can cash out to save money on your last-minute bookings.
Credit card perks are great for booking flights, and hotels and even getting cashback.
Save money with free amenities
Book accommodations at places with free breakfast, Wi-Fi, parking, shuttle service, and water to get the most bang for your buck. These are common amenities and will really help you save a lot of money.
Search for deals on apps
If you’re not using travel apps, what are you doing? There are companies that offer exclusive discounts through their app. You can also cash in loyalty points earned through apps.
Forgo 5-star hotels
Ok, we’re always down for a luxury hotel stay, but is it always necessary? Booking a 2 or 3-star hotel is a great way to save money and you can still sleep comfortably. Just read the guest ratings before booking.
