Making the Most of Meals While Traveling

3/3/2022 (new)
Authors: Nichole Huff, Sally Mineer, Heather Norman-Burgdolf

For many, planning your next travel adventure can be just as enjoyable as the trip itself. It is fun to daydream about where you will stay, how you will get there, and what you will do when you arrive--but what about the food you plan to eat during your travels? Research suggests meals and other food items can make up 25% of your travel budget. We look for deals and steals where we stay; however, we can also be strategic in planning, preparing, and purchasing food on vacation to ensure we still have exciting, nutritious, and cost-conscious meals. Food, like lodging and transportation, is a nonnegotiable vacation expense because you must get to your destination, have a place to sleep each night, and have food to eat each day. Saving money on meals leaves extra cash available for making memories or perhaps, extending the length of your vacation.
