There are a ton of sites that will help you find the cheap travel and stay deals. Some sites can even notify you when your deals are the lowest.
3. Purchase in advance
This goes for airfare and hotels advance tickets. Alot of airlines and hotels give you a bigger discount the further out you book your trip.
4. Keep the kids busy
I personally have done this the entire time for my daughter. Before the trip especially road trips I would make goodie bags, filled with snacks, drink, magazines ( if they are old enough), coloring book, activity books and a book to read. . So they can do something besides tablets and video games.
5. Eat at the Hotel
