School’s out for summer? Do you know what that means, it is time for vacations? Do you have any summer travel plans scheduled or in the works. Whether you are planning on exploring your state or venturing further away, here are some travel tips to help you have the perfect vacation.

  • Save money by packing snacks and drinks for the trip. Plus you can control what your family eats and give them healthier options.
  • Bundle hotel, airfare and activities wherever you can.
  • Avoid ATM fees by choosing cash back on purchases such as gas and grocery.
  • Pack at least one change of clothes for everyone that is easy for you get to in an emergency. One year when all three of the girls were younger, Mikaela had an accident on our way to Mexico and we were able to continue quickly on our way because of the change of clothes was easy to get to.
  • Pack items to keep your children busy.
  • Check out Groupon Coupons to find the best deals on travel coupons to use at places like Orbitz and Hotels.com. Groupon coupons are a free way for travelers to find thousands of coupons to save on their summer travel plans.

So tell me do you have travel plans for this summer? Or are you just going to wing it? Going any place exciting – we will be going to see Mikaela’s favorite player Javier Hernandez “Chicharito” play in the Gold Cup in July in Charlotte. And of course we will be travelling to Cary over the summer to see Our Carolina Railhawks play.
