Traveling can be pricey, but the getaway is worth it, no matter your budget. Some travel tips to cut costs:
• Use Google flights. Pick your destination three to six months in advance and Google will send email updates with flight price changes and recommendations on times to travel.
• Look for Airbnbs. Many have kitchens, and making meals (especially breakfast) is far less expensive than dining out.
• Check deal sites. Groupon also offers deals on vacation packages such as this five-day Costa Rica trip.
