planning a vacation

Travel is a luxury that everyone should be able to enjoy! Unfortunately, it’s not exactly cheap. Experiencing new cultures can be both a thrill and a budgetary strain. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to save money on every aspect of your trip. All you need is some preemptive planning, wise purchases, and the power of will!

Saving for the Trip

The first step to saving is knowing exactly how much money you’re going to need. Planning the details of your vacation is not only fun, but it will give you plenty of time to search and compare rates for the best possible prices on reservations, flights, and activities. Once you’ve calculated an estimated cost, set a date, a purposeful budget, and stick to your guns! Save a little bit of money each month, put in extra hours at work, or cut your day-to-day spending for some extra savings.

Packing Your Bags

Luggage is essential, and unfortunately costly. Hopefully, you’ve already got a suitcase or two, or you can borrow from a friend. If you aren’t already equipped to travel, Groupon’s got the coupons for just about everything you could possibly need from luggage, to electronics, to apparel.

Use Groupon Coupons to save money on the clothing you’ll need to purchase ahead of time! Search your favorite name brands or the items you need, such as the perfect swimsuit for that golden beach in Maui.


Groupon provides a massive supply of coupons for merchants across the globe and their search bar is location specific! Type in your area code and use the coupons and discounts you find to save money while you’re traveling on things like souvenirs, dining expenses, hotel costs, and plane tickets! The possibilities are endless when it comes to what you can save money on before and during your trip. Don’t let the expense of travel keep you from pursuing the dream!
