Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


When it comes to going on vacation, the words “I can’t afford it” are probably spoken more than any others.  It’s a common perception that vacations are horribly expensive and are out of the reach of the average traveler.  However, it is possible to have a good vacation if you’re on a tight budget.  You just have to know a few tricks.

Plan Ahead

If you have a limited vacation budget, it really is important to plan ahead to make the most of what you’ve got.  Plan exactly how much you have available for each element of the trip, and then plan ways that you can trim those areas down without having to sacrifice quality.

If you’re able to book a vacation far ahead of time, you’ll usually save, as the prices typically increase the closer the travel date gets.

Look for Deals

Travel companies are all working to secure your business and they all have lots of different vacation packages and deals happening most of the time. 

You might want to take the all-inclusive route, join a travel club or look for something last minute.  Last minute vacation deals aren’t for everyone, but you can definitely travel well on a budget if you take advantage of them.

The premise of last minute vacation deals is fairly simple.  You book your trip close to the travel date, and you save money by doing so.  You will likely need a flexible schedule to make this happen, but your tight budget will loosen up a bit if you do.

Think Outside the Box

Sometimes, moving away from the typical vacation and all the typical vacation parameters will help you save some money.  If you can’t quite make the full-length vacation budget-wise, maybe you should consider a mini-vacation instead.  That would give you everything you wanted, only in a shorter version. 

Avoiding all the common tourist traps while you’re on vacation is another way for the tight budget traveler to have a good trip.  You can still have a great time and soak in all the culture and history of your destination without draining your wallet from being a tourist.

Going on vacation when there are no other tourists there is another way to travel on a tight budget.  You can usually save when traveling during the off-season when fewer tourists are visiting your chosen destination.  Ask your travel agent to find out when the off-season is and how much you can save.
