Spring break is right around the corner and some of us are ready to get out! Whether you are ready to travel now our prepping for a future trip – I have partnered with Ibotta to share 5 ways to save money on your spring break travel this year!
(This is a sponsored post written by me in partnership with Ibotta. All opinions are my own.)
We recently went on our first vacation in over a year in January. We were hesitant and cautious- ok, VERY cautious. I may have wiped down every surface from Ohio to Florida with Lysol wipes, but we survived. We traveled in an airplane with three kids, rented a car and stayed for a week in sunny Florida. Being away from dreary, cold Ohio was just what my kids needed and we would do it all over again in a heartbeat. Every place we visited we felt EXTREMELY safe, even the airplane.
Ok, now to the good part – 5 ways to save money on your spring break travel! I used the Ibotta app to earn some cash back on our trip and it was super easy! From hotels and rental houses to flights and rental cars – Ibotta has tons of way to earn cash back on all your travel purchases! Download the app and start earning cash back on all your travel needs + so much more!
1. Earn Cash Back On Hotels & Rental Properties
There are a few websites on Ibotta that you can earn cash back on. The easiest one for us was Hotels.com. You can earn up to 7% cash back on any booking through the website if you click the link through Ibotta’s app. Thats a huge savings and more money to spend on extras during your trip! VRBO, AirBnB, Expedia and many others are also on Ibotta’s app to use for hotels or rental houses as well.
2. Earn Cash Back on Rental Cars
We used a Hertz rental car and earned 2.5% cash back on our rental car for the week. Again, you just open the Ibotta app and click on the Hertz link before booking. Super simple and again, extra cash in your pocket for your trip!
3. Earn Cash Back on Airline Tickets
If you are anything like us we research every site imaginable before booking flights. There are so many sites to choose from and it seems they all have different pricing. My tip is to find the cheapest site first then head to the Ibotta app and find that same website, click the link and purchase your tickets. That way you can earn cash back on your flights along with getting the cheapest fare! Some of the sites included on Ibotta are Expedia.com, Booking.com, Travelocity.com and a few others as well.
4. Join a Wholesale Club and Earn Cash Back on Membership
Another great way we save money on traveling is by being Costco members. Sometimes their travel site has cheaper deals than other travel sites. They have deals on rental cars, vacation packages, hotels and more. With Ibotta you can earn cash back on all your Costco in store purchases but you also get cash back for just joining!
5. Save Money and Earn Cash Back on Experiences with Groupon
For most of our trips we always try to save money by booking some of the “extras” on Groupon. Not only are you saving money just by getting the cheaper price on Groupon but you can also earn up to 14% cash back on all your Groupon purchases! We have bought restaurant gift cards, mini golf tickets, movie tickets, visited tourist attractions and so much more on Groupon and have never been disappointed!
So there you have it, my 5 ways to save money on your spring break travel. Whether you are planning a weekend excursion or a week long vacation I hope some of these will help save you and your family a little extra cash to spend on all the fun this year. We definitely all deserve a little break after the year we have had! Bon Voyage!
