Travel Smart during Spring Break

MSNBC reported the changes of travel experiences during this year’s spring break: airfares up 9% but hotel rates down 3%. As a result, if we want to save some money this year during spring break, we may consider the following alternatives:

1. Traveling with your own vehicle or a rental car instead of flying. The trade-off? Options are limited to those destinations within driving distance.
2. Balancing the expenses in selective locations --- the saving in hotels may offset the expense of airfares.
3. Be more flexible, a Tuesday-to-Tuesday and Wednesday-to-Wednesday trips are cheaper than Fridays or weekends. I bet professors won’t like anyone missing any class though.

What’s your plan for spring break? Any money saving tips to share with us?
