It’s about the time to pine for a break from the winter: Spring Break. We went straight to the experts for some tips to keep in mind when planning your special getaway this year.

A few tips:

  • Set a daily budget and use cash. That keeps you from racking up ATM fees all week.
  • Skip going out for breakfast: Choose a hotel with complimentary breakfast.
  • Take the time to research public transportation or use Uber/Lyft as an alternative to taxis.
  • Always double-check what you’re spending money on. You might find a hotel has started discounting right after you book your full-price room. Many will let you cancel and re-book within 24 hours.
