Well, in my experience keeping a road trip cheap comes down to the little things. For example, it’s cheaper to bring your food and snacks for the trip, or even to bring supplies so you can cook for yourself whatever you arrive. Meals on road stops and hotels are often expensive. And it’s easy to lose control of how much you’re spending when you’re hungry and tired self is faced with a menu filled with delicious items.
Looking for ways to save on accommodations is also wise. You can often get better deals on hotels if you book them early, and hotels aren’t the only option. You can pack tents and camp a few nights instead, or even get in touch with a campervan hire Kent, and drive that for the trip. A campervan usually accommodates up to four adults — see this site for examples — so if you are traveling with a group, what you’ll save in hotel costs will likely cover the costs of hiring a campervan.
