The good news is that traveling on a limited budget isn't hard. Here are a few tips that'll help you save money on your travel expenses while still experiencing an enjoyable business trip.

  1. Travel during the week. The best and cheapest days to travel are Tuesday and Wednesday. Adjust your business trip so that you're scheduled to depart on either of those days. It doesn't hurt to look at later flights either.
  2. Compare budget airline hidden fees. If you decide to fly with a budget airline, then you have to plan ahead and know what you're getting into. Things like Wi-Fi, checked bags, seat assignments, and even food and drinks often come at an extra price.
  3. Use points earned from your travel rewards card. Consider redeeming the points and miles you've earned. A few ways to earn are through the airline's dining program and shopping portal, booking and using your card for travel, and putting bills on autopay.
