Go on vacation in off-season.
If you are in a position to do so, you can usually find some pretty great deals on vacation spots in off, non-peak seasons. Depending on the vacation spot, a lot of times you can find good deals during the school year. For example, many places start dropping prices after labor day. If you have young children not of school age yet or no kids living in the house, this may be an ideal time to go. Not only do you save costs, but a lot of times places are less busy during these non-peak times. Check with your favorite vacation spot and find out if they have lower rates at various times throughout the year. You may find that you can save quite a chunk this way.
