Get Your Travel Dollars To Go Farther

El Centro, California (NAPSI) - To keep your next vacation on the road to savings and fun,  it can help to heed a few hints:

• Pack healthful snacks—bottled  water, boxed juice, crackers, nuts, dried fruit—to save time as well as  money.

• E-mail your important  travel documents to yourself to avoid losing them or searching for them  during your journey.

• Eat locally. On the  road and at your vacation destination, visit neighborhood restaurants and  diners rather than fast-food chains and get yourself a few treats at a  grocery store for a taste of what’s popular in the area.

• Stay in residential  neighborhoods, rather than downtown hotels that tend to cater to business  travelers on expense accounts.

• Carry ID that allows you a  discount. If you’re a student, a government employee, a senior or  in the military, bring membership ID to prove it. Many museums, amusements,  and shopping and accommodation places offer discounts.

• Pack everything you’re  likely to need—including your glasses, prescription drugs and  first-aid kit—so you don’t have to stop to buy extra clothes,  toys or equipment at tourist trap prices.

If you’re running low on space, consider a cargo box for your car.  Look for one that provides tough, all-weather protection for all your gear  and also combines efficiency with style. Consider the aerodynamic Thule Sonic  Cargo Box series. It features a patented AeroNose  Design that reduces drag and noise, SecureLock to  ensure that all gear is locked and the box is properly closed prior to  driving, and AcuTight Mounting that “clicks”   when you reach optimal hold to ensure your box is secured to the rack. It  opens from either side for easier loading and unloading from either side of  the vehicle. Plus, these boxes take under five minutes to install or remove.
