We have made travel our life for more than 25 years, and we value stealing back quality time with our loved ones over material possessions any day, but we can’t argue with the fact that family travel is expensive – and gets more expensive as your kids get older.

But that doesn’t mean that travel has to stop. There are ways to lighten the expenses and make your dreams happen and your moments count.

Tips For Family Travel on a Budget

Here are some of our top tips for family travel on a budget!

Make A Plan And Stick To It

Yes sacrifice sucks, but those small sacrifices can lead to monumental gains in the long run. If you know where you can save money, and do so, then you don’t have to feel guilty about splurging on a bucket list item later on.

Travel With Kids While They Are Young

Babies and young children are so cheap to travel with. They don’t need much, can often get free or cheap rates on attractions, and you can carry most of their food and supplies around with you.

Enjoy a Staycation Or Travel Locally

I LOVE staycations with my family. It’s much cheaper and is way less hassle. You don’t have to go far when you travel, why not get to know what is great about your local area?

Consider Road Trips From Home

Road trips are our favorite way to explore now we permenantly live in the US. No airport hassles, excess luggage fees or overpriced flights for each member of the family!
