Cheap Vacation Ideas

Don’t let the supposedly high prices of vacations deter you from taking a much needed vacation, as we have for you 20 different cheap vacation ideas that you can use to get an excellent vacation for an affordable price. Enjoy!

  • Currency – Traveling to a location where the US dollar is worth more than the currency used where you are intending on traveling can be an awesome way to save money on your vacation. For example the US dollar is worth a lot more than currency used in Can Cun.
  • Quality Time Travel – For all the single moms and dads out there, this company can assist you in finding awesome deals on vacations, which the specialize in finding affordable vacations for single parents.
  • Home Exchanges – If you have a friend that lives in a spot that you may want to visit, you can always swap houses for the week, or even house sit for them when they go on vacation. There is also a section on Craigslist called “housing swap” where you can exchange homes with people in different locations all over the world.
  • Cruises – This is an excellent cheap vacation idea as the large number of cruise companies are all trying to offer the lowest price, leaving you with the opportunity to get a cruise at anywhere from 100 to as low as 40 a night per person. Another way to get a cheap vacation on a cruise ship is to book last minute as almost always, there are cruise ships that have vacant cabins, which cruise lines will do pretty much anything to get them occupied, which means lower prices for you.
  • Camping – This is one of the best cheap vacation ideas out of them all, as you can find camp sites with camping rentals that are at very low cost and you can cook your own food so you don’t have to dine out for every single meal.
  • Hostels – If you are looking to head out to Europe, you can consider staying in hostels, which are much cheap than hotels and resorts.
  • Bring The Entire Family – Sure the sleeping arrangements may be a little awkward, but bring friends and family will cut down on costs, as everyone can split prices on hotel and resort fees, meaning you can stay at a very nice spot for a lot less.
  • Staycations – A staycation is where you stay at home and do day tours or spend the night at a city near you and enjoy local spots, which is an excellent cheap vacation idea for those who have just moved to a new city or state and don’t know much about your knew home.
  • Coupon Codes – No matter where you are looking to go, use coupon codes which can be found through online searches. For example if you are going to Hawaii, type in the name of the hotel or resort that you want to stay at followed by the word “coupon” or “coupon code”, and search for the best deals offered.
  • All Inclusive – All inclusive packages must be on a cheap vacations ideas list as you can have your whole vacation packaged into a discounted price on everything that you would be doing on a vacation. This can include; airfare, food, activities, transportation and more.
  • Offseason Travel (Sort of) – A cheap vacation can result from traveling in months after big holidays as well as Spring Break. In the event that you want to travel to Las Vegas, you may want to go during family holidays, as Vegas offers the exact opposite when it comes to a family environment and prices can drop during times where families are gathering together and not traveling.

  • Visit a National Park – This is a great option to use for a cheap vacation, as basically all the money you will be spending will be for lodging and food, as all the entertainment will be free as you are surrounded by hiking trails and awesome sites.
