Whether you’ll be flying, driving, or commuting to visit family this year, it helps to have the right travel accessories. We’re here to help you by sharing some ways you can save money using the right travel essentials.

3 Ways to Save Using Travel Accessories

  1. Go digital with guidebooks.holidaytravel_phone Instead of hauling around heavy guidebooks, utilize online resources instead. Some of these apps may be free to download and use. To avoid overusing your cell phone data plan, look for apps that can be downloaded and used offline.
  2. Save space in your luggage. Want to lighten your load and the cost to your wallet? Minimize the need for larger or numerous pieces of luggage by utilizing space-saving technology that takes your clothes and compresses them to maximize space. You’ll have less luggage to haul around and fewer baggage fees.
  3. GPS your way to savings. Whether you plan to travel by car to your destination or to drive around town when you get there, a GPS unit is an affordable investment that can save you money for years to come. Utilize your GPS to find the shortest/cheapest ways to get where you want to go. You will save gas money, miles on your rental car, and/or tolls. You can use a stand-alone GPS unit, a GPS unit installed in your vehicle, or a GPS app on your phone.
