Whether for business or pleasure, traveling can be a fun experience. If you feel like you’re paying too much, however, some of the fun may be sucked out of it. You might not be able to afford to do everything you want. Read on to find out how you can minimize your travel expenses and still get where you want to go.
When you travel, it’s important to stop for the cheese as well as the big-time monuments. What that means is this: Go to Mt. Rushmore, sure. But first, you need to stop at the Jolly Green Giant Statue in Minnesota and get your picture taken. You need to actually go see the Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD, and Wall Drug. These places are kitschy, and that’s exactly why they’re essential. America is both a place of great beauty and great silliness, and both should be celebrated by the traveler.
Invest in a waterproof wallet. You no doubt need your wallet and its contents safe. While traveling, it can be easy to forget about what you have in your pockets. Having a waterproof wallet is a great idea for anyone who plans on going to the ocean or sitting poolside.
Most people live and die by reserving the seat next to the window; however, you should consider one on the aisle. Window seats can be very restricting in terms of bathroom access and overhead storage access.

Using these tips and making wise choices will cut down on your travel woes. If you can save money on all the incidences of travel, you might enjoy the trip more.
