Airfare, Hotel & Rental Car Packages on a Tight Travel Budget

If you are looking to plan your budget vacation and are working with a tight budget, you might be surprised to find that budget travel deals are easier to find than you may think. Many people must plan budget vacations with small amounts of money but that is no reason not to take a trip. Airlines, hotels and rental car companies have realized that many travelers can not afford certain perks, this is why there have been efforts made to make cheap travel options available to those who have limited budgets.

JetBlue Airlines is one airline built on the goal of creating budget travel. JetBlue was created as a low-fare airline based out of John F. Kennedy Airport in New York City in 2000. Five years later the airline serves 32 cities throughout the United States including Boston, Las Vegas and Washington DC. Do not think that lower air fares translate into shoddy service. JetBlue only flies new, unused airplanes and the airlines' planes actually are the newest overall in comparison to all other airlines. The airline focuses on quality service since it relies on faithful customers who value flying for low prices on budget vacations.

Another airline that may make it cheaper for you to fly to your budget vacation destination is Southwest Airlines. Serving 59 cities across the United States, Southwest Airlines offers a number of special sales and deals throughout the year. During special offers made by Southwest Airlines, passengers can find one-way tickets to destinations across the United States for as low as $39.

If you are looking for budget travel accommodation, look no further than Super 8 Motel. With over 2,000 locations in the United States, Canada and China, Super 8 is likely to be able to serve you. Not only does Super 8 offer some of the lowest hotel room rental rates in the world, but they also offer a Guaranteed Best Rate program. If you find a hotel that offers a similar room for a lower price, Super 8 will give you your first night's stay for free. No other national hotel chain offers a budget travel program such as this.

Super 8 is confident in its low rates and high quality rooms and service. The chain guarantees you will be satisfied with your stay. Super 8 also offers a number of other budget travel discounts available such as a triple A member discount, a Trip Rewards program where frequent visitors can earn reward points, and special rates for large groups. Room rates typically begin at about $70-$75 without discounts. Other national hotel chains such as the Days Inn and the Holiday Inn often run specials as well so if you know the dates of your vacation it would be smart to look into any possible discounts that would be available to you at that time.

Once you arrive at your budget vacation destination, you will have to find a method of transportation to get you to your hotel and to any nearby attractions you plan on visiting. A rental car is the easiest way to do so. Although public transportation may be cheaper, a rental car ensures that you are able to travel at your own pace without having to abide by a public transportation schedule. Rental cars can be expensive and typically run by the day. However, it is possible to find rental car companies that offer low rental prices. U-Save Auto Rental is one of these companies. U-Save Auto Rentals offers cars and SUVs for rent at prices lower than that of their competitors. Small economy cars can be rented for as little as $29.98 per day, one of the lowest rates you will be able to find anywhere. SUVs are slightly higher, with Lincoln Navigators renting at $103.98 per day, considerably lower than the rates of competing rental car companies.

Planning a cheap but quality budget vacation is more than possible if you do your research before traveling. The internet can be an extremely valuable tool for this. Compare prices from as many airlines, hotels, and car rental companies as possible to find the ones that will give you exactly what you are looking for at a low, bargain budget travel price. If you look around you will be able to put together a great budget vacation at a very low price.
