If you’re planning a summer vacation, make sure you give it thoughtful considerations to turn it cost-effective. Plan your travel well ahead and look for creative ways to save money on it. Nevertheless, here are some tips on how to budget a summer vacation.

4. The cost of hotel stay is the biggest consumer of a vacation budget. So choose a property that perfectly matches your profile. Instead of staying in a pricy hotel room, plan your stay in a vacation rental or private home (definitely a good deal for group travelers) to save considerable amount of money. Determine your needs exactly, and search an accommodation deal to cater them. Do remember that the more you save on stay the more you have to spend on enjoyment.

5. If possible, prepare your meals by your own. Eating out at restaurants is really expensive, and can add a substantial amount to your vacation budget.
