How to avoid breaking the bank on your March Break getaway

THORNHILL, ON, March 9, 2016 /CNW/ - Canadian staycations, European adventures and some American destinations round out the list of March Break vacations this year.

Even with the low Canadian dollar there are still many great places to visit. No matter where your holiday plans may take you, CAA South Central Ontario (CAA SCO) recommends the following cost-saving travel tips:

  • Use an experienced and knowledgeable travel agent to help keep you on budget.
  • Prepay in Canadian dollars for accommodations, car rentals, attraction tickets and city tours.
  • Set a daily budget for incidentals to help keep the cost down.

"If you are thinking about staying close to home this year, it is the perfect time to discover your own country and explore everything from the great outdoors to big cities with old world charm," said Silvana Aceto, Media Relations Consultant, CAA SCO.

Popular Canadian March Break destinations:

  • Whistler, British Columbia
  • Lake Louise, Alberta
  • Muskoka, Ontario
  • Toronto, Ontario
  • Quebec City, Quebec

If travellers have their heart set on a stateside vacation, there are some special offers for Canadians including resort discounts and a free night stay for those heading south of the border to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and Scottsdale, Arizona.

For those looking for a little more bang for their buck, European countries such as Greece, Portugal and Spain offer a wide array of attractions, culture, entertainment and nightlife without having to break the bank.
