Ways to Save on Your Last Minute Holiday Travels

This holiday season, if you are planning on either going back home or going on vacation, there is still time to be strategic about saving money on your trip. Hochman & Goldin has a few suggestions on what to do to save money on any type of trip for the holidays.

One great idea is to cash in on frequent flier miles if you have a credit card or belong to a loyalty program that allows you to rack up rewards to be used on travel. Using your frequent-flier miles for holiday travels and buying your airfare is a really good idea since rates tend to be higher during this time.

Another option is to use your miles to upgrade to first class while paying the same as you would for an economy ticket, making your holiday travels less hectic and possibly getting your luggage checked in for free with your first class ticket.

If you don’t have time or don’t want to be bothered by checking travel sites constantly, you can sign up for fare alerts on several sites like Airfarewatchdog, Yapta, FareCompare, TripAdvisor, and Kayak.

Also, this may not seem like the most ideal situation, but if you are looking for a cheap airfare deal and you didn’t book early enough, you can try booking a flight for Christmas Day when fewer people are traveling. Fewer people booking tickets means that there may be low air fares during this time.

For road trips, you can consider replacing your SUV or truck with a fuel-efficient rental car that may end up costing you a lot less calculating gas and the rental price.  Also, if you are going to rent a car, it’s probably best to look for a provider that’s not by the airport, which tend to offer much better deals.
