Research Activities Online Before Your Trip

Look to the Computer For Pretrip Activity Savings

Now I assume hope you regularly research prices of flights and hotels before booking, but what about activities? Along with the added perk of looking for reviews on whether or not a particular stop is a tourist trap or well worth the money, you can also save bucks booking "big ticket" items for things you know you want to do. Museums, theme parks, and other stops often offer discounts for tickets prebooked online because so many people don't make this simple effort and are willing to shell out more cash at the door.

Don't be this person. Find out what you should do and


Thoroughly research your destination and potential activities! In addition to checking out the guidebooks and tourism board, my favorite place to seek out is the webpage of the local paper or city magazine. Periodicals geared toward locals have reviews of newer places and upcoming events, and sometimes even post discounts, too! If you don't take the time to do this before you leave, make a stop at a grocery store once at your destination. In addition to stocking that local paper, these shops also have free community papers and other booklets usually at the front of the store. Sure, some of these discounts are for things you won't want anyway, but it just takes one good saving to make the extra effort pay off.
