Cheap Travel Vacation in Arizona

Believe it or not, you can still get a basic, clean hotel room in Arizona for less than $20 a night. Even certain upscale accommodations cost under $100 a night.

Here are some handy tips for a Cheap Travel Vacation in Arizona.

1. Go to Priceline and select the "Name Your Own Price" feature to grab the lowest room rates.

Simply visit Priceline, search your desired dates and destination, then click the "Name Your Own Price" option. Doing this can save you up to 40% on your flight, and up to 60% on nightly room rates.

Be aware that certain rules apply to naming your own price on Priceline. 

For example, your itinerary is fixed, and no part of your payment can be refunded. 

2. When visiting big cities, stay in smaller nearby towns whenever possible. For instance, if you visit Phoenix, you may find it cheaper to stay in a smaller, nearby city such as Chandler, Mesa, or Surprise. Then rent a car or take public transportation to get where you want to go. 

3. For maximum savings on your cheap travel vacation to Arizona, book your flight and your hotel room at least two weeks in advance.
