4 Easy Tips For Saving Money On Vacation

Jan 08, 2014

One of the major misconceptions about taking a vacation is that it has to be expensive. When you stay in one of our Gatlinburg cabins there are plenty of ways that you can have fun and save money at the same time. In order to help you budget your trip, Parkside Cabin Rentals has four tips for saving money on your next trip to the Smokies.

1. Research Transportation Options

Depending on where you are coming from it might be cheaper to drive or fly to our cabins in Gatlinburg. You can use websites like Expedia, Priceline or Kayak to research airline costs for when you want to take your vacation. Gatlinburg is about an hour’s drive from Knoxville’s McGhee Tyson Airport.

In order to estimate the cost of driving, find out how much gas costs and how many miles it would take to travel to Gatlinburg. Sevier county is only a day’s drive from 60% of the nation’s population, so there is a good chance that taking your car would be the most convenient option.

2. Dine In

If you eat out at restaurants for every meal of your vacation, you are going to spend a ton of money very quickly. Fortunately, our cabins come with fully furnished kitchens, so you can save money by cooking your own dinner. Family vacations are a great time to teach your kids some of your favorite recipes and let them help you out as you prepare the meal.

3. Go To The Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Did you know that the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited national park in the United States? In this gorgeous park, you will find thousands of species of wildlife, historic buildings, and plenty of excellent hiking trails. And best of all, admission to the park is completely free!

4. Ask For Specials

Parkside Cabin Rentals frequently offers discounts and promotions for our Gatlinburg cabins. To find out if you are eligible for big savings, visit our Contact page or give our vacation specialists a call at 877-535-4620.
