Spring Break Travel Savings

The Frugal Diva always wondered how to decide between driving and flying if the distance was not too great.   Jon Lal at befrugal.com has a way to help you decide and some tips for saving on your travel plans.

When planning a trip, start with a free online tool to decide whether flying or driving makes more sense. The Fly or Drive Calculator (http://www.befrugal.com/tools/fly-or-drive-calculator/) factors in time taken, cost and carbon emissions.

Complete your reservation to get the most for your money:

1) book online

2) use a coupons and cash back website like BeFrugal.com for travel purchases (hotels, flights, rental cars, etc.)

3) use a rewards credit card to pay

In most cases, you can “stack” all 3 of the savings listed below:

1) average of $27 saved with a coupon from BeFrugal

2) average of 7% cash back on online purchases through BeFrugal

3) additional cash back or points from your rewards credit card
