Before we made the choice to Roadschool, we took many road trips to visit family all over. We have family from Ohio to Florida and several places in between. This means lots of travel and juggling to be able to visit everyone, and we had to do it in batches with hubby’s time off!
We tried to do this as frugally as possible and save money. Over the years, I picked up a tip here and there that would save us a bunch. I know not all these tips will be for everyone, but you should be able to do each tip.
I love this fuel cost calculator. It gives us a decent idea of what fuel will cost, and it’s normally right within about $50. Lodging can be the biggest expense, next to gas, aside from pitching a tent to limit loading you can stay with family but that isn’t always a great option for us now with 4 kids. We started getting a hotel room visit some family just for the lack of space, and that is normally over half of our road trip bill.
So check out these 20 great way to save money on a road trip!
