General Vacation Tips
To keep the cost of Canadian holidays down, make a point of shopping around
and considering the cost of everything you are spending money on when you are
booking your holiday. The little things add up quickly when you are trying to
enjoy some time to yourself.
For example, if you are looking for the best rates at a hotel or a resort,
consider a mid-week stay instead of booking a room on a weekend. You can still
have a nice time and avoid the crowded highways on statutory holidays by using
this strategy. Choosing to visit during the off-season can also help you save
on the cost of your visit as well.
If you are visiting another city, you can keep costs down by using the local
transit system rather than renting a car. In a situation where you need a vehicle
for a day or two for a specific activity, you can make the necessary arrangements.
That way, you aren't paying for something you won't be using every day during
Play tourist in your own city or province. How many attractions are located
within a couple of hours from where you live that you have never taken the time
to explore? It's easy to overlook things that are close by when we are caught
up in our everyday lives. Make a list and work on a plan to visit them during
your next "stay-cation." Take a day trip or two and explore these
treasures located near you.
It's important to take time away from work or school to rest and recharge
our batteries. Otherwise, we run the risk of becoming burnt out. A mini-vacation
can be something as simple as exploring a local attraction for an afternoon
or a day. We can plan to take more time off when our budget allows us to plan
a more elaborate vacation.
