As entrepreneurs and travel lovers, there is a considerable amount of planning that goes into all of our family trips and business travel.  Being home business owners too, our plans are built around the most cost-efficient way to travel. 

Fortunately for us at least for Paul, his business trips are fully paid for. But for our own business travels, to events and training conferences, traveling can be costly.

Whether it’s been long time coming or we got a few days’ notice to book, we have found that these events are usually held in peak season…Don’t know why the powers that be don’t think…Cost for Reps or event attendees lol!

This of course usually means traveling at peak times.  Not to mention how high these expenses can get when you decide to make it a Family trip.  Even though you cannot control these costs, there are some cool ways you can save money by knowing where to cut back, without spending your trip on cucumber sarnies and Kool-Aid!

Over the years, we have found that…

If you didn’t read it head right to the resource below


To break it down further…

Here are some cool tips to Reduce Travel Costs Today!

#1. In the recommended resource above, we suggested you book and fly on Tuesdays or Wednesdays because it’s usually cheaper than Friday to Sunday. If you are not time bad, always check mid-week flights. By the way Friday and Sunday are the most expensive days to fly!

#2. We also suggested that you book “multi-city”, for surprisingly cheaper rates! Here is an even more surprising tip. When you book your return, trip check the rate for the reversed itinerary. You could save way over $200 when you change the arrival and departure cities. Bonus, yo get to see a new city to and from your trip! #boom 

#3. Ever heard of Airbnb? Well, of course you have and can redeem $25 on your first booking right here.

Yet there is this even lesser known site that can reduce your travel costs on accommodation even further!

Introducing Wimdu this is a hotel alternative that you should definitely consider when looking for that cool accommodation in a new city. Esp. if you wish to vacation like a local.

The Telegragh had this to say about Wimdu:

“People with spare rooms…can let out their rooms to tourists and earn a small fortune”

Wimdu boasts saving you up to 70% in your travel cost. I say Yes please: See their claim below:

“Discover the best deals for popular cities and destinations with our Wimdu WOW Deals – and save up to 70%!”

#4. Here is something most people have on their travel bucket list: Lunch by the Eiffel Tower or getting proposed to, or Honeymoon in Paris etc. Yet there is a much cheaper alternative, seriously!


Since this is all about helping you Reduce the cost of travel, lets save you money and time in Paris!

Head on to Tour Montparnasse. This is the tallest building in Paris, with an observation deck on the roof, with similar views you would get from the Eiffel Tower. This building boasts 59 storeys and is 210 meters tall, with 6 underground levels!

Their rates also compete favourably with the Eiffel tower prices you can check them out on their website above. Adults pay 17Euros. Children 9.50 to 12 Euros and Children under 4yrs go free! You get a glass of wine for the Evening tour and say “Cheers to the City of Light- ParisTWIT  You definitely SKIP THE Long queues.

  1. The last time I went to Europe, I used Icelandair because I could schedule a stop in Reykjavik without adding any cost. I plan to use them again when I head to Germany next summer. Since I live in Alaska, I can pop down to Seattle and fly from there.

  2. In travelling, we enjoy and have some fun with a peace of mind. Well, this is a great news and so wise to reduce the travel costs. This is a big help. We enjoy the trip and we saved money as well.

  3. Wow!This such a really useful tips..Surely consider these tips when I started planning my family trip..Great!

  4. [ Smiles ] I didn’t know that flying out on a Tuesday and a Wednesday was cheaper than actually flying out on a Friday.

    Thank you for this very useful information.

  5. Our Family World

    I know booking months in advance also provides discounts on air fare. Thanks for these tips. I will have to try the tip of flying in and out of smaller airports too.

    1. Its all about saving And reducing the cost of your travel so Absolutely, if you can do it 6 months in advance go for it! Esp. if you will also be paying it off a credit card!

  6. Annemarie LeBlanc

    I knew weekend flights are more expensive and I avoid those days as much as I could. I will try AirBnB next time too.

    1. Yes AnneMarie,
      weekend flights are dearer because the airlines know everyone likes to travel on their days off πŸ™‚ Save fly on a weekday esp Tuesday/wednesday! πŸ™‚

  7. travel blogger

    These are great tips! I have never heard of Wimdu, but we will have to check this out for our next vacation. So many people don’t realize that there are lots of ways to cut travel costs.

    1. Yes Kait, Wimdu is new and not as popular as Airbnb YET! We like it better to be honest, try it when you are next in Europe. Much cheaper too! We are all about helpin gyou reduce your travel costs! πŸ™‚

    1. Yes Courtney, we agree, research and then do some more πŸ™‚ It will reduce your travel costs considerably if you know where to look and we give you lots of resources over here!

  8. Thanks so much for these tips! I need to buy a ticket soon and I def be flying mid-week days. Hopefully, they’re available. Part of me would be down to save by flying multi-city, but that turns a 5-hour direct flight into a 9-hour journey. Too much!

    1. You know what Nadalie? we put multi-city flying down to an education for our children, more geography and culture, so yup, an extra couple of hours here and there, see so worth it!

  9. I really love this! Traveling is so expensive, not to mention everything you spend once you get there with food costs and items you didn’t expect to purchase. Off season purchase of hotels and flights are great too. For example, we found that Summer is horrendous for travel, but if you book your flight for September, you usually will get at least 40% off on stuff. Kids will have to be back at school, yes but what’s 2 more weeks if you can request that time off from school?

    1. yes Karlyn, definitely Great to book off peak, unfortunately in UK you cannot Take kids out of school for lil vacays unless you give a really valid reason…Not great for parents but hey! We gotta follow rules right!

  10. I certainly didn’t know about the Tuesday to Thursday thing because I usually just check the dates when we’re available and check flights from there! I think it’s awesome that you shared these hacks!

    1. Really GiGi????? I come from Africa & I find it the easiest to source cheap flights…and since its home, we find it cheap to vacation!
      Different strokes for different folks I guess!
