#ad Finding Ways To Save Money When Planning Your Spring Break

This is a sponsored post, all opinions are my own.

This
winter has really taken a toll on many of us across the country, and
like many, I know that my family and I are ready for spring to
arrive. I have been looking into places to travel for spring break,
and they’re all in warmer areas. I am looking for warm weather, and
my kids look forward to heading south to the beach and to amusement
parks. Like others out there, I am conscious of the expenses for this
year’s spring break. 


There
are many ways to save money and enjoy yourself on vacation, but you
need to know what things to look out for in order to save. One way I
save is on flights. I like to book them at least one month ahead of
time so I can ensure that we not only get the flight we want, but
that we can also save money. When I go to book early, I use sites
like Orbitz and Expedia to compare different airlines, and I also use
sites like Kayak, where I can compare prices using different filters.
Doing the research and booking my flights ahead of time not only
helps me save my vacation money, but it also gives me peace of mind
knowing that I sought out the best deals for our travel!

Another
way I budget for spring break is by spending less on travel
essentials. If you have a Discover card, you can cash in your
accumulated Cashback Bonus for partner
gift cards
 at
more than 150 popular merchants, which
always come with added value (such as $20 Cashback Bonus for a $25
gift card). I can use these gift cards to buy bathing suits and other
beach necessities! I can also get gift cards to use towards luggage,
snacks and games.  


Besides
the budgeting and money-saving basics, we enjoy our vacation by
taking advantage of the complimentary Discover cardmember benefits by
putting the entire cost of our trip on my card! With some of the
benefits Discover offers, I feel more at ease if something were to
happen to our baggage. Specifically, I can take advantage of
the baggage
delay insurance
.
If you book your flight using your Discover Card and your checked
luggage is delayed by at least 3 hours, Discover will reimburse you
up to $500 so you can replace your items. So, as you are
planning your spring break vacation this year, take these tips into
consideration and be sure to use your Discover Card when planning
your trip!
