As a budget traveler, I’m always looking for ways to get the most out of life while saving money. While I adopted a frugal way of living many years ago- packing lunches to work, walking instead of taking a cab, hunting for sales, and cutting out unnecessary expenses- this doesn’t mean that I don’t like to enjoy myself. Originally coming from the Bay Area, where there are always new restaurants popping up, shows to watch, yoga classes to attend, and so on. It doesn’t matter if I’m on the road or not; I want to take advantage of what’s going on around me.
One tool that I’ve used throughout the years is Groupon. It has allowed me to dabble in all of the things that have struck my curiosity without draining my bank account. I’ve also used it for necessities, like haircuts and Christmas gifts. Who wouldn’t want to be able to get the things they already wanted or needed for a fraction of the price? It seems a no-brainer.
Many people think of Groupon as a way to entertain themselves while at home in major U.S. cities, but it’s also a great way to save money while hitting the road. Groupon Coupons has a page dedicated solely to travel, and it allows you to book hotels, rent cars, purchase travel accessories and sporting goods, and even go on organized tours. Trusted brands like Hotel.com, ZipCar, and Travelocity all offer fantastic deals. There are thousands of options to choose from, and all of them help you save money, so that you can use your funds for what is truly important to you- travel!
