How to Save Money on a Road Trip

2022 Chevrolet Equinox | Bangor, ME

Road trips are incredible adventures, and they are typically much cheaper than the cost of airfare. Here are a few more ways to continue to save money on your road trip.

Chip In

If you are traveling with friends, but it’s your Chevrolet Equinox that’s getting everyone back and forth, it’s okay to ask for some financial assistance. Whether they chip in for gas, accommodations, or pick up the check at mealtime, every dollar will help you protect your budget.

Crunch The Numbers

Speaking of budgets, it is essential to your bottom line to prepare and stick to (as closely as possible) a budget. Create this budget before you hit the road. You might also want to plan for unexpected costs with a contingency budget.

Stay Relatively Close To Home

The farther you travel, the more you’ll spend. To help you save money, consider a road trip that is closer to home than a cross-country trek that will drain your finances.

Plan For Downtime

In between road trip stops and your destination, you and your family will spend lots of time comfortably seated in the spacious cabin of your Chevrolet Tahoe. Elevate the enjoyment of the ride with entertaining options like audiobooks from your local library, free apps, and specially curated playlists to help pass the time. If you’re behind the wheel of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, you know there is no limit to your adventures, and thanks to the spacious truck bed, you can bring along your own adventure gear like bikes instead of spending money on rentals.
