Ten Tips for Fun But Cheap Travel

Gay Travel: Ten Tips for Fun But Cheap TravelThis past week, my boyfriend and I wanted to embark on a fun, easy and cheap getaway. Since I live in Rhode Island, we were sold on the idea of a short drive out to Provincetown, MA–right on the tip of Cape Cod. We gave ourselves a budget of just $150 for the 24-hour adventure–and even with gas at $4.00 per gallon, we made it happen!

Here’s how we did it:

1. Call motels and inns directly. While booking online is super convenient, it’s always helpful to talk to a real person directly. They will also know of any last-minute cancellations or special discounts–which will increase your chance of finding a room in your budget.

2. Travel off-peak. Our motel room was just $87 on a Thursday night. Come Friday–during the Memorial Day holiday–that same room goes for $150. We saved $63 by taking our trip on an off-peak travel day.
