4th of July weekend is upon us! Are you getting out of town to celebrate your freedom? If so, our Orlando Toyota dealership has some money-saving tips to help you save a couple bucks. Let’s talk more about holiday travel and how you can give your bank account a break this weekend!
Use our Orlando Toyota tips to save a few bucks this 4th of July weekend
Tip #1: Try to avoid traffic. The longer you idle your Orlando Toyota in traffic, the more gas you use, and the more money you have to spend at the fuel pump. Plot your route to avoid traffic (a lot of our cars have technology that provides real-time and even predictive traffic information). It’ll save you money AND also keep your frustration level low. You could also come up with an alternate route before you leave just in case.
Tip #2: Pick your fuel up spots carefully. Did you know that gas is typically the most expensive at stations near the highway? Try to plan your fuel pit stops for the best prices – Orlando Toyota Entune technology and other apps can help you stay current on gas prices and help you find the best ones near you to save you a few pennies.
Tip #3: Try to be a little flexible with your dates. Can you get out of town this Wednesday instead of Friday? How about coming back next Thursday instead of Wednesday? Play around with the timing if you’re flying or staying in a hotel, as the rates are typically more expensive around holidays when they know it’s going to be busy.
Tip #4: Plan, plan, plan. Plan your route (and an alternate), and plan any stops along the way, as well as your final destination. Like we said, 4th of July weekend is a busy one, so just “winging” it could end up costing you a lot of money. Book your hotels ahead of time and look for the best deals using tools like Kayak.
Tip #5: Do your research. If you’re getting out of town, plan your excursions and activities so you can find cheap or even free ways to celebrate our independence! Look for live music, free festivals, and fireworks shows. If you can buy tickets or make reservations anywhere, do it – you may get a discount for buying ahead, and it’ll definitely save you time.
Prep before you leave to give your bank account a break
Tip #6: Pack carefully. There’s nothing like getting to your final destination and having to shell out a fortune for forgotten towels, clothes, or anything else that doesn’t make it into your suitcase. Don’t pay tourist prices – prep ahead of time and pack your Orlando Toyota so everything is easy to find.
Tip #7: Plot your parking. You often have to pay extra to park at hotels, but you also don’t want to park your Orlando Toyota in a bad area of town on the street. Look for a lot before you get to your final destination so you’re not stuck shelling out big bucks when you get there.
From Toyota of Orlando, have a safe and happy 4th of July weekend!
