Not only is it possible to enjoy a fun vacation with your dog, but it's also easier than ever to do so while being frugal. Finding deals and ways to save doesn't need to be a laborious chore. With gas prices on the rise and vacations in the forecast, here are a few tips to keep your change spare and your dollars intact:
Plan a picnic.
Plan the route and pit stops with a fun picnic basket–style lunch for ravenous road warriors. Save on fast food costs and carry pooch snacks, cool water and a "paw-nik" basket of sandwiches, fruits and beverages of the human variety.
Research gas savings.
Use GasBuddy, or a similar gas price checker, on your mobile device to find the lowest price on gasoline in any designated city.
