2. Here’s Another Idea – Rent a Vacation Home!
Want something closer to home? Don’t want the hassle of finding airfare? Not “into” a hotel stay with the family but still want a getaway? Then perhaps a vacation home rental is what you need. If a property owner has yet to rent that summer house, there’s a very good chance you can pick it up for less than the going rate. You will probably need to ask for a lower rate – but asking might just save you a few dollars.
Can’t spend a whole week but the site information says 7-day rentals only? Much like the rental rate, the number of days can often be negotiated as well if the place has not yet been rented. Just ask away!

3. Cruising more your style?
Last minute cruise deals can also save a bundle on the wallet. Cruises would rather sail full even if they need to offer those empty rooms at a last minute reduced rate. They are of course, hoping you will spend more money while on the ship!
Where do you find such deals? Check out your favorite cruise line or a websites that specialize in last minute cruise deals such as Orbitz Last Minute Cruises, Last Minute Cruises, Cruise Critic, or Travelocity.
So what are you waiting for? Pack your bags and be off with you! Celebrate the end of summer with a bang!
