I was excited for a minute there until i realized this hack only works if you have friends. Sadly I do not. So no cheap vacation for the family lol.

My family and I travel about 4-5 times a year just for my work. We are usually gone for a week each time and I try to turn those into a small vacation as much as we can. We almost ALWAYS use AirBnB. It saves us a ton of $$$! Especially since I have to have a kitchen and a way to cook for my son who has tons of food allergies.

I'm curious about what the Tuacahn deal was too, since I just booked tickets for Newsies myself!
The Melea Show (1 year ago)
It was a preview night special--the night before the official opening of the parade. But last year they did a special for July... so just sign up for their emails and check their website for deals.

Where did you go?

How many of you stayed in the house?
The Melea Show (1 year ago)
The house was big enough for everyone to have their own bed between 5 families. But we've done something with 2 or 3 families and the cost has been really similar!
Chantal Melendez (1 year ago)
Was the price for lodging so low because of a per family split?
The Melea Show (1 year ago)
I've seen houses as low as $40 a night on VRBO and Airbnb---might not be as nice of a place. But cheap places are definitely out there depending on what you are looking for.

I heard air bnb will no longer be in St. George is that right?
Erin Johanson (1 year ago)
Wish you had a code for those of us who already use Airbnb or VRBO. keep the vacations coming!

I spend like $500 in alcohol in 5 days. You are missing out
Morgan McRory (1 year ago)
I would LOVE to do a family reunion like that with my family! (490/4)/4 nights = ~$31/person/day Pretty good. Now I just gotta convince the fam to start saving
Brynn Whitchurch (1 year ago)
We use VRBO anytime we can. If we have to stay in a hotel I always look for one with free breakfast
Brittney Hooiman (1 year ago)
We try and bring our own food and snacks so we don't have to eat out every meal! 😀
Amanda Owens (1 year ago)
To save money on vacation we try to bring or buy our food. Oh, and I watch for travel deals before hand.
Tawna Fuller (1 year ago)
We are headed down there next week. What discount did you use for Tuachan?
Amber Morris (1 year ago)
We usually get a big house and stay with family and save tons!
Nicole Barney (1 year ago)
I always try and pack food and snacks at the grocery store instead of stopping at gas stations and paying $4 a piece for a small bag of candy per kid!
jessi gut (1 year ago)
Our week long vacation was around 800. Our friend works at a hotel and got us a deal 35$/night and we chose to drive 200$ gas) rather than 500$ flight each. From Ca to Tx. We budget 50$ a day for linch/dinner since breakfast is included :)
Kimbra Cooke (1 year ago)
I hope you had a wonderful time! It looked fabulous!
Celina Anderson (1 year ago)
Your amazing! This video is going to help me out to visit our family we haven't seen in years!! Can't wait! Thank you melea
Celina Anderson (1 year ago)
Haven't been able to afford a vacation. First comes the home for us . For small trips to visit family I bring a lot of snacks and activities and little new cheap toys so she doesn't want to get a new expensive toy.
Skyler Derai (1 year ago)
this was amazing. must try this summer.
Danson for Joy (1 year ago)
Great suggestions! My husband has a big family, so I'm excited about trying a family vacation like this in the future. ;)
Breanne King (1 year ago)
We have been saving like crazy on vacations by using airbnb and keeping an eye on flights! #igstoryfam
Brooke W. Coombs (1 year ago)
I was just in St.George this weekend with my sisters and we saw Newsies! I booked our hotel early (with free cancellation) and then as the trip got closer, I found better prices. I cancelled my first reservation and was able to save $50 per night with the new price.
The Melea Show (1 year ago)
LOVE THAT!
Ami Mendoza (1 year ago)
i live in Miami so we always have the free ocean but i do agree with the VRBO.. it is the best. We rent a really big home with a pool in Orlando all the time. Really affordable and comfortable. especially if traveling with children and pets.
Kayleigh Kill (1 year ago)
You said St. George and my heart fluttered! My grandparents live there and I love visiting them! Zion is my favorite national park, and TUACAHN is so amazing!!!
Nester Bug (1 year ago)
Great video ! Thank you
Desiree Vallejo (1 year ago)
I am definitely going to try some of your tips for going on vacation 👍🏼 but I do know airbnb last weekend for a Vegas trip and we stood in a house and it was super cheap so that was a plus I liked.
Jennifer Reeves (1 year ago)
we went to Yellowstone last year. my parents used their points for their timeshare. with travel, food, souvenirs, park entry and rooms we paid less than $200 for a week. cheapest vacation ever.
Heather Taylor (1 year ago)
Melea do you prefer VRBO or Air BnB? Also where did you stay in St. George? That looked perfect for our family trip next summer!!!
The Melea Show (1 year ago)
I check both every time. They have different houses on them! The place we stayed isn't doing anymore rentals. BUT, there are TONS that we have used in the past that are VRBO and Arbnb. So just search and find something perfect!

What's a "vacation?" I keep hearing people talk about this word and I have no idea...
Griffin Benchmark (1 year ago)
Zeena Basiouny 😆👍 Thanks for clearing that up for me! I must admit, I was a little confused by the word. Haha! 😉 Great video though! Now that I have a better understanding that is... 😉👍👏
Zeena Basiouny (1 year ago)
Griffin Benchmark it's when you have a break from school or work, and during that break you go somewhere relaxing.
Nikki Jeske (1 year ago)
We never go on vacation because we can't afford it. We need to try these ideas and start small.
Kelly Flygare (1 year ago)
Travelzoo notifications are fun for travel deals. We always just use our parents timeshares to save on hotel 😬 #igstortyfam (are you still doing this?)
Ashley Martinez (1 year ago)
We do a lot of staycations here in the summer. Arizona has them usually on sale because no one wants to stay here since it's so hot. The weather is hot but they usually have water parks too
