Finding ways to save money is one of the considerations that we have when taking a tour of Grand Canyon National Park. Traveling should never be synonymous to spending a great amount of cash. Here are some suggestions that will help you in successfully enjoying your vacation without having to splurge too much at the same time.
- Take advantage of fee-free days
Go online and search for days when the Grand Canyon offers entry for free. It’s always best to do a bit of research before planning your trip to this national park. As it is the 100th birthday of National Park Service, Grand Canyon National Park can be visited for free in certain days.
- Talk to locals or those who have visited the park
If you know a friend or a relative who has visited the park recently, ask them about tips on you can reduce your expenses during the trip. They may have failed in saving money during their excursion, but little information they learn along the way will help you a lot!
- Spend time in places you want to visit
If you want to visit all of the attractions spread across the Grand Canyon, it will certainly cost you more. On the other hand, if you do your homework and list down places that you think are worthy of your time (including Grand Canyon Hotel), then you will save a lot. For instance, if most of the places that you want to visit are located in the South Rim, you can simple take North Rim visit off your list. One attraction that is worth the money and time is Havasu Falls, an oasis in the middle of the desert, located in Supai, Arizona.
- Be flexible with your flight dates
If you want to travel on a budget, consider touring Grand Canyon during off peak season. Apart from significant savings on flight and travel, there are lesser people visiting the Grand Canyon during its off season.
