Tips for Your Cruise Ship Parking

Wednesday, 4 May 2011 02:59 by Mandy
Have you decided that a cruise would be the perfect vacation for you this spring or summer? Cruises are a great way to enjoy an affordable vacation for you and your family. However, one thing that many people do not consider when they will be going on a cruise is the actual transportation to the cruise ship. If you are driving yourself there, then you will have to determine what to do with your vehicle during that time. Unfortunately, this is the last thing that many people think about, but it should be one of the first ones since you will be leaving your vehicle alone for an extended period of time. 
Here are some tips and options you will have for your cruise ship parking
The Cruise Owned Lot
Of course, most cruise companies provide parking in their own lot for customers  This may be the most convenient option since it will be located right on the property and you will only have to walk a few steps to the docks and the ship. The downside to this, though, is that most cruise owned parking lots will charge a fairly high fee. If you are looking for ways to save money, then the cruise owned parking lot may be more than you can afford. 
The Private Parking Area
Many cities offer a plethora of privately owned parking areas that are much more affordable than any other option like San Diego cruise ship parking. These parking centers can charge by the day and by the week, and when it comes to the cost of parking your vehicle for a week or two, this could definitely be the discounted option. The only downside is that you will not have as much security as you would in a different type of parking area. You may be risking damage to your vehicle, especially since you could be leaving the car for an extended time. 
The City Owned Garage
Cities often offer parking garages that provide a great deal of security for your vehicle. These parking garages will be more expensive than a private garage, but often less expensive than a cruise owned lot. You can usually get a weekly parking pass that will save you more money. The downside to these types of garages is that they may be quite a distance from your cruise location and you may have to walk a ways with your luggage. 
When it comes to planning your cruise, be sure that you do not forget to plan what you will be doing with your vehicle. Often, people do not think about this simply because they are focusing on the planning for the cruise itself. However, you will need to make sure your vehicle is safe and sound for the extent of your cruise. You will have different options for parking, and you will need to find a balance between safety of your vehicle and cost. Visit online sites that will give you more information about the city you are visiting so that you can find parking options and then compare those costs to the fees that your cruise would charge to park in their own lot.

How Can I Save Money on Summer Vacation?

Tuesday, 19 April 2011 01:40 by Mandy
These days, we are all looking for ways to save money especially since it seems like expenses are always going up. Many people are not even going on vacation simply because the cost is more than they can afford. However, you do not have to stay home this summer. All you need to do is ask yourself how you can save money on your summer vacation. In fact, ask yourself the following questions and you will be able to find budget cutters that will make a big difference. 
Am I Planning Enough in Advance?
The number one way to save money during the summer is to plan your vacation in advance. In fact, if you can plan and book your vacation a month early, you could potentially save hundreds of dollars. This is because many hotels, airlines, and parking facilities charge much less for early bookings. The closer to your actual vacation that you book these things, the more money you will end up spending.  Best practice is to book your DCA parking as early as possible.
Am I Looking for the Right Discounts?
Many people forget to look for discounts simply because they are focusing on the vacation itself. However, if you look in the right places, you will find that there are discounts on every aspect of your trip. Discount booking sites like Airport Parking Connection, can often save you money on your BWI parking bill. Be sure to use one of these sites to book your trip.  
Additionally, many restaurants and attractions offer discounts and coupons that you can find online and print out. These coupons can range from a percentage off your total cost to a buy one ticket get one free deal. Be sure to shop around the Internet for any coupons you can find. 
Am I Vacationing on the Right Days?
Many people include a weekend in their summer vacation, but this will actually add a great amount to your overall cost. Hotels charge much more for weeknight bookings. If you will be flying, airlines also charge much more for flights to or from your destination on the weekend. By planning your summer vacation during the week, you could save several hundreds of dollars. 
Am I Packing Everything I Need?
Many people do not give themselves enough time to pack, and inevitably, they forget things. These things then have to be purchased on the trip, and the cost can add up quite quickly. However, if you give yourself plenty of time to pack, you can make sure you do not forget any of these incidentals and save yourself that cost. Do not be afraid to start planning your packing a week in advance of your trip. This especially holds true if you are packing for children. 
If you ask yourself these questions, you can make sure to save plenty of money in your vacation budget. You do not have to stay home this year just because of cost, and you can find ways to save hundreds of dollars even on your next trip by planning ahead and booking your Denver Airport Parking early!
