Saving You Money: Summer Travel

   No tickets, no change fees, no security lines.  We love the flexibility of a road trip, but extra costs of hitting the highways can really add up.
 
  Trae Bodge of Retail-me-not-dot-com says one major road trip expense can hit a waistline, and a bottom line - food, "You get away from home and all those good health habits you may have been attending to during the winter all go by the wayside.  So it's really important to try stick to your diet and how you normally eat if you can.  Because those are really, they're wallet busters for everyone out there."

   Plan ahead and choose restaurants you'll look forward to on a route. For the time in between pre-pack snacks. Another overlooked expense- parking, especially in big cities. Research garages ahead of time, to find the best deal. The same for hotels. A smartphone can help, even with unexpected overnight stays.

   The other glaring expense on the road this summer: Filling up the tank. Apps like Road Ninja or Gas Buddy can locate the best gas prices along the way.
