Even though we’re slowly moving into spring, there’s no better time than right now to start planning for your summer adventures. It always feels like this part of the year goes so quickly and the next thing you know, you’re picking your kids up from their last day of school. Make some fun memories traveling together in the summer! Layaway Flights
Even if money is tight, if you follow my tips and tricks, you’ll be able to make your money go further. Here are my top 5 ways to travel and stretch your dollars this summer and tips about layaway flights!
1. Book your flights on Spirit Airlines
Spirit Airlines has some of the lowest fares in the airline industry. Plus, if you join the $9 club fare, you’ll get special perks with your membership like discounted fares, vacation packages, cheaper baggage fees, and your cheaper fares apply to everyone traveling with you, like your kids! Popular places you can go with Spirit Airlines are Orlando (hello theme park heaven!), San Francisco for a historic treat that ranks #3 in the US by U.S. News, New Orleans for the ultimate foodie adventure, San Diego for beaches, and New York because, well, it’s New York and it has everything, including some of the best museums in the country!
For the BEST prices on flights, I always book through Skyscanner. I love that I can set alerts based on dollar amount. Simply set the price you want to pay, leave your travel destination open and sit back and allow Skyscanner to deliver deals directly to your inbox. Download the Skyscanner app today and never miss a deal then use tip number two to layaway flights
2. Airfordable (aka Layaway Flights)
Recently, I mentioned Airfordable, a company that allows you to layaway flights and pay for it over time. It’s a great way to lock in a low fare, secure your spot and save!
3. Skip the hotel and rent an Airbnb
I know I talk about them a lot, but I love Airbnb. You can stay in some unique and large spaces that cost less than a hotel. Plus, if you’re traveling with a large family or a group, you can easily stay together by renting an entire home or penthouse. They often have better amenities too because you can cook, use the backyard and private pool, and wash your clothes, leaving you more money to spend on exploring the places you’re visiting. Plus, they now have a Pay Less Up Front plan that lets you pay for part of your stay up front. I talked about it recently in this post. Layaway Flights
4. Look for discounts on deal and tour websites
There are so many ways to save on your summer travels if you just look around. Groupon, Travel Zoo, LivingSocial, Gilt City, City Pass and Viatour all have smart ways to save money on the activities you want to do most in the cities you visit. Take a look and you’ll be sure to find something appealing to your family. Layaway Flights
5. Spirit Airlines Credit Card
And finally, another reason I love Spirit Airlines is for their credit card. You can earn 15,000 bonus miles after your first purchase! Redemptions for one-way, off-peak region 1 flights start at only 2,500 miles, so your bonus could be enough for up to three round-trip flights. Imagine all the places you can go with that!
