How To Save Money On Weekend Breaks

Last minute retreat or getaway? Couple's vacation for two? Just because you want to get away for a few days, even if you book and plan it last minute, doesn't mean you have to pay too much to enjoy your mini-retreat vacation. So, when planning for a weekend break, or simply going off on a whim, these are a few ways you can go about saving, when you want to learn how to save money on weekend breaks you are going to take.

Avoid peaks

Yes, during holidays or busy travel seasons, weekend retreats are costlier. So, if at all possible, plan around them. Book during a slow season, go to areas which are more remote, and find out when tourists are at home, so you can pay far less for the weekend break you greatly deserve and are ready to take. If you would like to get some estimates on hotel accommodation then comparehotelprices.co.uk is a good place to visit.

Drive  
If you can avoid flying, consider driving. With many fuel efficient vehicles, low cost prices for rentals, and nearby retreats you probably never knew about right outside your city or town, you can truly make the most out of your getaway, for far less than you might have anticipated.

Consider a bus
If you don't want to drive, bus or train is another way to travel; and, it is also typically far cheaper than flying. Further, if you travel by train or bus, you can really enjoy the scenery, and take in the sites you are going to pass along the way, to make the trip far more enjoyable when you need that much deserved break.

Carry-on 

If you do have to fly, consider a carry on rather than checking a bag. You will find that many airlines charge absurd rates for checking your bags. So, if you can fit it all into one bag, this is a simple way to really reduce your travel rates, and still enjoy the weekend you are going to spend away, if you are going to fly to the destination which you plan on visiting.

Consider packing your own snacks. You can also book all-inclusive travel deals, or use booking sites to find discount or special hotel pricing when you book. You don't have to spend too much to make the most out of the weekend break you are taking. When you are ready for some time off, whether traveling alone, with family, or a weekend break for two, these are some tips you can consider, so you really keep travel costs down.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
