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.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
