Everyone needs a getaway sometimes. However, when your bank account balance isn’t up to the dream vacation you’ve been thinking of it’s time to get creative. Don’t worry though babes because we got all the deets on how to vacation on a budget! We’ve got you covered with some great ideas for when you need a getaway but don’t want to break the bank.

The Day Trip

Sometimes all you’ll need to get back on your feet is a one day mini vacay. So fill up your gas tank, grab your girlfriends, and hit the town. Explore the area you already live in by heading down to the beach for a day of lounging in the sand or clear your head on a hike. You can also finally try hitting up a new restaurant in town. Taking a quick break from your normal routine will allow you to clear your head and have a great time while keeping costs low.

The Staycation

The key to a perfect vacation is some prime relaxation and self pampering. So forget expensive resorts and spas. Grab a good book and go lounge by the pool, or plan for the perfect at home spa day. All you need is a pretty bath bomb and cozy slippers, or even better invite your besties over for a night of face masks and painting your nails while watching your favorite rom-coms. This pampering staycation will leave you feeling especially refreshed and de-stressed. 

The Paid Vacation

In our day and age we take pride in producing quality instagram posts. This especially comes in handy when companies pay you to do just that! Royal Caribbean Cruise Line started an internship program where they pay participants to go on a three week cruise for free! The only job requirement is they create Instagram posts about the fabulous time they have while relaxing in the sun and participating in cruise ship activites . Can anyone say dream job?! For broke college girls or babes on a budget in need of a break, getting paid to go on a cruise and post pictures is the way to go! Sign us up!!!
