How to Avoid Money Traps While Traveling
Youíre going to spend money on your vacation. Itís unavoidable and, quite frankly, necessary. However, that doesnít mean that you have to just throw it away. There are bad deals, inflated prices, and unnecessary splurges lurking everywhere you travel. When youíre away from home and out of your element, it can be difficult to avoid these all-too-common money traps. The more you know, the better equipped you are to keep your vacation on track and your bank account full.

1. Distance Keeps Your Wallet Fatter

Thereís nothing wrong with checking out the tourist hotspots. However, business owners know how close they are to those landmarks and look to cheat visitors. After a morning at the museum or day spent exploring ruins, put some distance between you and the crowds before stopping for a meal, drink or souvenirs. Even the gift shops charge a premium and you can often find the same products elsewhere at discounted prices.

2. Fuel from Afar

You definitely want to return your rental car with a full tank of gas to avoid the exorbitant charges levied by the rental companies. However, your wallet will take just as steep a hit if you fill up near the airport. Before you leave for your flight, ask the front desk staff at your hotel to recommend a gas station nearby. Unless you have a long road trip to some remote airfield, your tank will full enough when you arrive at the rental lot to meet your obligations.
