Whether it's the cost of the flights, gas, or just the expenses you incur throughout the trip, traveling can cost you, your friends, and your family upwards of thousands of dollars depending on when and where you're going. 

We've compiled a list of ideas for how to keep costs low while traveling from the airport to your destination and beyond.  

Plan Ahead 

A little planning can go a long way to save money. Before your trip even starts, think about what you will bring. 

Track for Flight Deals

Before you travel, you should keep track of flight deals by using a service like Going, Hopper, or Scott's Cheap Flights. 

Make a Budget and Stick To It

Creating a budget when you travel might be challenging, but keeping your costs low will be worth it.

If there is a tourist location you would like to see, book ahead to avoid day-of fees and possible scam tickets.
