When you decide on a trip, whether it be business or pleasure, the more planning you do in advance, the better the chances are that you can save money. Reserving hotel rooms and purchasing event tickets as well as transportation can be expensive, but with careful planning, the savings can add up fast. The following are four tips on how to save money on your next trip.

Comparison websites for hotel rooms
This type of website allows you to compare hotel rooms for the time period of your trip. Most of these sites have a large number of hotels that you can get quotations on, but the real beauty in using these sites is that you can do a comparison of prices and availability by several different search parameters. For example, you can only look at the price for the type of bed or number of beds you need. You may be more interested in the comparison of hotels by consumer ratings or by hotel industry standards such as a three, four or five star hotel. Comparing hotels for the characteristics that are important to you, combined with competition among hotels, will give you the best price around.

Comparison websites for airfare
The same thing that applies to hotel rooms can also be done with websites that have airfare.

Many of the comparison shopping sites that have hotel rooms will also have airfare. For certain types of trips, you may be able to book your room and purchase your airfare as a package and get even more of a savings for you trip. Trips to Las Vegas are often an example of this type of package deal.

Buy event tickets from online brokers
There are now several websites that offer event tickets for reduced prices, but many of these sites will also offer tickets for events that are sold out or are difficult to find. In this case, it is not a question of saving money, but having the ability to plan the trip you want, because you are able to buy event tickets that would otherwise be unavailable. Examples of these types of events are sports such as baseball, basketball, hockey, and football. There are other popular events that can be sold out as well, such as concerts.

Using a comprehensive event planning website
There are now websites that allow you to plan your entire trip. Not only getting to and from your destination, but also what you do once you arrive at your destination. These websites offer what is called peer-to-peer transactions. These are transactions that you can do with people directly who have tickets and rooms that they will not be using. In addition, hotels may make last minute offers for rooms that have not been reserved.

There are many great ways to save money on you next trip, but a comprehensive event planning website seems to be the wave of the future. One example of this type of website is Hallst. If you are looking for basketball playoff tickets, NBA finals tickets at are available.
