4 Superb tips for a wonderful but free vacation


Due to immense work pressure and the workaholics that we are, we can hardly use the vacation allotted to us every year. However, travel expense is also one of the reasons why most people tend to avoid traveling. A little rest and relaxation can ultimately lead to a hole in our pockets. However, savvy travelers can get nearly every vacation free of cost. Do you want to know how? Read on to know 4 tips for how you can spend a free vacation:

1. Free plane tickets: Those travelers who are frequent fliers can use the option of frequent-flier mile in order to get free plane tickets while they are going for a vacation. Travelers can take hold of any of the numerous credit cards which may offer a sign-up bonus of at least 25,000 miles. If a traveler wants to get benefits from the frequent flier miles, then he/she should book tickets 90 days in advance. 

2. Free accommodation: Frequent-flier miles can also help you in getting the facility of free lodging. This option can be used for a large number of hotels nationally and internationally. Apart from that, websites like HomeExchange.com are good ways for you to trade living spaces with someone else. For example: if you have an apartment in Dallas, Texas, you can exchange it for one in Italy for a week in the spring. CouchSurfing.net is another website which will help travelers to find a place to use for free. 

3. Free food: There are certain hotels who will offer you a complimentary breakfast with your stay. Hotel chains like DoubleTree offers free cookies to guests. Some hotels that cater to business travelers offer complimentary drinks on weekdays. Many bed-and-breakfast hotels offer bottomless cookie jars, snacks and beverages. Travelers can even consider a working vacation with World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms who will offer free lodging and food for the services offered by the travelers.

4. Free transportation:  Many airport hotels offer free shuttles to and from their site. If you spend time at a hotel close to a major tourist attraction, then they can often provide buses to the site. Your frequent-flier miles can also come to your rescue. You can redeem your frequent flier miles for rental cars from all the major companies.
