Our AIP, Inc. team is a well-travelled bunch, and we are always conscious of our expenses on the road. Business travel can get pricey, and we would like to share a few of our favorite tips for saving money when you venture away from the office:
- Keep an Eye on Fare Changes: You can compare air travel fares well in advance of your trip if you know which websites to use, and farecompare.com is a good place to start. Budget airlines and economy class shouldn’t scare you away, because you will reach your destination just as quickly while saving a few bucks.
- Go With a Partner: It’s always nice to cut expenses in half, and the AIP, Inc. team has made great use of the travel buddy system. If you can find someone with whom you would want to share lodgings, taxis, and other road expenses, jump on the opportunity.
- Find Bed and Breakfast Options: You should avoid large hotel chains whenever possible, because they typically cost you double what you would pay at a B&B. Explore your options and read some reviews before making any plans. If you happen to have friends and family at your destination, see if they have an extra bed so you can really save some money.
We at AIP, Inc. hope you will use these tips to your budgetary advantage the next time you hit the road for business.
