Make Your Getaway even Cheaper
Make your holiday even more cost-effective following some of these simple tips:
- Always eat the complimentary breakfast at the hotel if there is one and eat one other meal as a picnic. Buy snacks and food items from a grocery store or outside market. When you do eat a restaurant meal, try the lunch. It is just as good as and much cheaper than dinner. With only one restaurant meal per day, your food budget will go further. Always avoid room service.
- Take the train to your Ontario destination. There are discounts for overnight travel and you will save a lot on your travel expenses if you don’t fly.
- If you plan to rent a car, do it at your hotel. The taxes will be less than at the airport and there may be other deals the rental company has with the hotel that can reduce the cost by as much as 50 per cent.
Ontario is the perfect destination for a romantic getaway, because it has so many secluded, beautiful areas with hotels that offer excellent all inclusive rates. If the price is right, you can have your getaway every year.
