Budget Holidays - Planning a Trip to San Francisco on a Budget

When you are planning your holidays to San Francisco, the first thing you need to realize that San Francisco can be a very expensive city to visit. If your money is limited however; there is no need to be concerned about it because if you plan it just right and include a lot of their attractions that are free, you should be able to enjoy your travel in and around San Francisco with very little money worries.

The biggest question when planning your trip to San Francisco is where are you going to stay? Do you want a hostel, a hotel or a motel. Of course the hostel is going to be the cheapest way to go but you may not like the idea of sharing everything with a bunch of strangers, so you might want to look into staying at one of the many chain motels or hotels that can be found in the area.

Word of warning though, for the price you don't want to stay by or on the Wharf these places can be pretty expensive. So you should look for places that might be in the Union Square or Nob Hill areas. Try and stay away from the Tenderloin part of town because these places are going to be pretty run down and will attract some unsavory characters. Make sure that any hotel or motel you are considering, that you read the customers reviews to get an idea of what the place is like.

Unless you live in California you are probably going to want to fly so make sure that you check for the best deals by looking for your tickets online. You can either book your flight through the airlines own websites or you can use one of the travel sites like Expedia for example. Never call the airlines, you will more than likely have to pay more. Most of the airlines websites will have website offers that you can choose from which will save you a bundle of money. There are usually restrictions but it's worth the savings in money.

Before you go check out the city guides that are available so that you can research the restaurants that are available. These guides will generally indicate how expensive each place is by dollar signs. This way, you can put together a list of places to go eat that won't cost you a fortune.

Not only will this save you money but it's going to save you time on your vacation since you will already know where to go and have your meals. Consider going to the Mission area for cheap and great Mexican food and Chinatown is going to offer you delicious food at a fraction of the price you might find elsewhere. Make sure to look for deals when you are online that you can utilize when you go to the restaurants you've chosen in San Francisco.

Don't get a rental car to see the city, especially if you are staying right in San Francisco, they really can be a waste. Not only are they an added expense but they are even more of an expense because parking is extremely pricy in San Francisco and even extremely hard to find. Best thing to do is get a pass for the MUNI system. They have a variety of different pass packages you can get and this can be purchased online as well to save you time and money. Even taking a cab is a lot less than if you were to rent a car, especially if you are just using the cab for driving around the city.

Before you leave for San Francisco, look up online for “free attractions in San Francisco” you should be able to find quite a few things you can do for free, you will also probably run into a variety of different printable coupons you can use at places that do cost. Once you get there you can also get a variety of different brochures and discount coupons from the place you are staying as well.
