Dan’s Tips for Travel on a Budget

July 2, 2008

Reader/listener Dan sent us a few ways his family saved money on their trip to Ireland.

My wife and I along with our two young children had been planning a trip to Ireland for years. This was the year to go, then prices started to rise! Rather than cancel, we made some modifications.

We went in April rather than the higher-priced summer peak season.

We stayed at a self-catered cottage for a week rather than B&Bs and hotels, ate breakfast and many dinners at the cottage, took picnic lunches during the day, and ate in pubs when we were out.

We concentrated our travel in the west and cut down on fuel costs by driving less and seeing things more in-depth.

Sure we missed some of Ireland, but that is just another excuse to return!
