60% of vacationers say they have a vacation budget yet 25% admit they exceed that budget every time. Visitors to the Orlando area admit that they have gone over their vacation budget by as little as $300 to as much as $1300. With multiple top-ranked theme parks and countless attractions around the area, it’s easy to understand how anyone can over indulge. Many people save for a long time to afford their family this luxury.
To ensure your family enjoys themselves and that you aren’t paying for this vacation months after getting home, we at Rosen Inn Pointe Orlando have compiled a list of cost-saving tips to help you stay on track. The key is to book ahead as much as possible and to ask about available offers.
- Extra tours and excursions consume most of our visitor’s excess cash. There are many websites that list all available excursions and their cost. Do your homework in advance to see what’s happening in the city, plan your days ahead as much as possible, and stick to the plan.
- Depending on your resort of choice, you’ll find various onsite facilities and complimentary services. At Rosen in Pointe Orlando, we have, among other amenities, three swimming pools, a video arcade game room, and a children’s playground. We also have free scheduled shuttles to Universal Orlando Resort®, SeaWorld®, and Wet ’n Wild®.
- If you don’t have children in school, try traveling in the less busy months like after school reopens in August to just before Halloween. January and the beginning of February are also great times to travel if feasible. Many businesses offer lower rates and create specials to attract visitors during these slow times.
- Don’t use cash unless absolutely necessary. It is not safe to carry a lot of cash on you if your budget is extensive. Instead, purchase a prepaid credit card. This will allow you to monitor your vacation cash more closely without personal cash in your bank account becoming visibly enticing.
Don’t let your dream vacation leave you in a bind when you get home. Following these tips should help keep your spending on track. Begin proper planning by booking your Rosen Inn at Pointe Orlando reservation online today and take advantage of competitive rates.
