Many people feel it is hard to have a vacation on a dime but in actuality, if you put a little time into researching the different carriers vacation packages it is actually very easy. Recently Delta Airlines was offering a companion fly free sale until June 4th for travelers traveling in the US to the Bahamas. Delta is not the only airline carrier that offers this package but you will find from time to time Alaska Airlines offers this, as well as British Airways. Even non-airline companies such as Greyhound bus, and Amtrak offers free companion travel to many of its destinations. With the use of the internet, it is easy to track down these deals simply by bringing up Google and typing companion airline ticket into the search menu.
Sometimes it is good to try and plan a vacation in advance and that also helps to save money but don't sweat if this is not at all possible because many travel carriers offer last minute deals on there websites. American Airlines for example has last minute vacation cruises and packages with the cost for purchasing on any day up to five days away from the date you wish to travel posted. I have actually used this option many times to travel away on a long three-day getaway of rest and relaxation in the Caribbean.
When looking for travel deals its best not to limit yourself to just searching Expedia half the time if you type in your destination in Google it will bring up many travel search sites that offer travel deals. I am not saying do not use Expedia I am mainly saying when trying to save on travel costs it is a good option to shop around and compare prices. In addition to all of this, many car rental companies offer last minute vacation packages that include hotel and car or even hotel car and airline ticket. Therefore, with this in mind you too can vacation on a budget.
