5 Tips to Save for Holiday Travel


5 Tips to Save for Holiday Travel

As the hustle and bustle of the holiday travel season approaches, money-saving tips can help keep your holiday budget in check. While it’s normally easy to navigate the best deals and sales for holiday shopping, you might tend to break the bank when it comes to holiday travel. Whether planning a trip home, or a vacation to celebrate the holidays, Red Roof is offering savvy advice to travelers about navigating high prices and keeping travel costs low during the season. The key is to be aware, flexible and strategic. Follow these simple suggestions to maximize your savings. Stay Calm and Travel On. 

1. Take a Road Trip

Airfare can be expensive around the holiday season, so why not drive to your destination instead? Driving a car may be your best option when you compare convenience, costs and ease. Take a fun road trip to visit family and friends. According to GasBuddy, a gallon of unleaded fuel will average just $2.01 in December. There’s never been a better time to hit the road.

2. Loyalty Means Everything

Consider staying with the same hotel brand on a regular basis in order to sign up for, and collect, loyalty perks. For example, travelers can sign up for Red Roof’s loyalty program, RediCard® and quickly earn free nights with only 6,000 points. Use your loyalty points wisely, combining them with special offers as well as gas cards and gift cards to save more. There’s no better time than now for road tripping and Red Roof Inn® is encouraging travelers to take advantage of RediCard® with free nights and the Nicest Price® for stays at their hotels across the country.

3. The Cost-Effective Hotel Stay

When traveling, costs quickly add up; some coffee drinks, for instance, can cost up to $8.00 per cup. Choosing a hotel that offers in-room tea and coffee options, as well as other amenities, can provide significant savings over the course of a trip.  All Red Roof PLUS+ hotels feature Premium Rooms with Seattle’s Best Coffee® and snack treats ready in your room. Superior and Deluxe rooms feature irons and ironing boards, hair dryers, in-room coffee and tea makers, and microwaves and refrigerators so you can buy, store and prepare frozen dinners or leftovers (for even more savings!) 

4. High Speed without the High Cost

Many hotel properties can leave you in the lurch, charging for high speed internet when you need to stream your movies, games and music. With Red Roof’s new verified WiFi locations however, guests won’t pay extra for fast WiFi. That’s because Red Roof Inn is taking their WiFi service to new levels at their hotels across the country, testing and then boosting the ability of Red Roof hotels to increase WiFi to high speeds….. speeds that will allow guests to stream their favorite movies, video games and music. Fast. Free. Verified WiFi is now available in Statesville, Washington DC-Manassas, Syracuse, Buffalo-Niagara Airport, Pittsburgh South – Airport, Ann Arbor – U of Michigan North, Chicago – Willowbrook, Austin South, Nashville Airport and other locations.

5. Book In Advance and Save

Driving to your destination also affords you more time and money to plan and book a stay at your favorite hotel. Book in advance and you can often save a great deal. For instance, guests booking online can see Red Roof’s Nicest Price® option by clicking on the "Nicest Price" button. Nicest Price® is dependent on location and availability but offers up to 15% off the best available rate when guests book two or more days in advance.
