Lack of planning could drive a road trip's costs up. For example, booking a last-minute car rental instead of shopping around months earlier is one way people pay too much. Maybe looking over some proven ideas about spending less on a road trip could make the journey more affordable.

While it may be tempting to travel during the peak season, the off-season could be much cheaper. Hotel prices might drop, and so could the demand for fuel. And paying more for food drains a budget, too. Packing food or choosing budget-friendly restaurants could help the cause.
