I was simply going to write a post when we came back from a spontaneous trip on how low cost we were able to keep it however I came across some great resources and felt I should write the article in stages.
I saw a seat sale for a new budget Airline and felt, “Why not” I checked and saw I could low cost flights to Hamilton Ontario from Halifax Nova Scotia for approximately $49 per person, each way. It was also going to be a total of $40 for the baggage each way. We were locking at approximately $380 for our flights. I thought this would be a great time to go to Niagara Falls, a bit off season, which is amazing for both my anxiety and our budget. I have Air Miles sitting in my account; I have my account set to 50% Cash Miles and 50% Dream Miles. I thought we should rent a car, so for 5 days, after I redeemed Air Miles, taxes, fees, I had to put $10.50 on my credit card.
I looked at some AirBnB ( Friends who sign up for Airbnb with your link will get $45 CAD off their home booking. And they get $17 CAD to use toward an experience worth $63 CAD or more. ) however didn’t want to make a final decision yet. I know food is one of the most expensive things on the trip so I wanted some lower cost options as well as options in the event we wanted to go out and drink some evening or two. I asked our wonderful Facebook followers for codes for all those amazing services such as Skip the Dishes, Uber, etc. Anything that could give me a bit of a discount and they could get some benefit in return.
I know we always get hungry when we get back to our temporary home away from home when on vacations so any way to keep those cost down are always welcome! We don’t have any of these fancy services were we live in the woods so I reached out to our Facebook Fans for their codes and links!

I’ve also learned to ask to have the tourist tax removed 🙂
I’m unsure yet where we will be staying but after tips from fans I am currently looking on both Groupon and Wagjag. I am careful to see what places we pick to stay has parking, the cost of the resort fees and other fees. Very often you can find a deal that includes tickets to events, hotel, food credits all in one. I’ll update as we continue to plan and our trip.
