I know it’s tough, especially if you have kids, and especially given the way the economy is now. However, as with many important things, difficult is something to be worked around, not a reason to not do something. I am convinced that couple getaways are extremely important. Even if it’s Friday after work till Sunday afternoon, it helps a couple to reconnect and get better in touch.
I’ve suggested ways of cutting costs before – and will again below. Please hit the comments and give your own tips and tricks for making a couple’s getaway easier or less expensive.
- Go midweek when prices are lower.
- Go off season.
- Save on food by hitting a grocery store when you arrive and buying food. Bring an ice chest to use as a fridge in your hotel room.
- Get friends to keep your kids – and do the same for them later.
- On-line services like priceline.com, hotwire.com, travelocity.com, and others usually have great last minute deals.
