Travel Tips to Stay on Budget

BETHESDA, MD--(Marketwired - Dec 18, 2013) - Getting there is half the fun, but it can also eat up your budget. When you're traveling on a shoestring, you need to make wise decisions about how to get from one place to another if you want more cash for fun. Marriott's Travel Tips Infographic offers helpful ways you can score savings before and during your trip:

  • Start with airfare. You've already scouted out the best deal for your schedule, so how can you save even more money? Try moving departure and arrival days away from expensive Fridays and Sundays. Pack light, and the lighter the better. If you can get everything you need into a carry-on bag, bonus points for you because you'll avoid baggage fees altogether. Use the money you saved to buy yourself a new outfit instead.
  • Hop a train, a trolley or a bus. Public transportation is inexpensive and is extremely efficient. Every time you choose the subway over a taxi, you'll save a pretty penny and get a peek at the life of locals too.
  • Rent a car, but not at the airport. Rental car companies charge a premium for cars rented at the airport, but many are willing to pick you up and drop you off there for no extra charge.

Our friendly and resourceful staff can help you find more travel tips at Marriott hotels around the world. With thousands of locations, our hotels are sure to be at the center of your journey.
