5 Savvy Ways to Travel On a Budget

Going on vacation can be quite expensive, no matter where you visit. From the flight, to the hotel and amenities — it’s easy to lose track of how much you’ve actually spent. Although vacationing on a budget may seem like a dream, it actually can be a reality. Want to have the time of your life without breaking the bank? Check out these money-saving travel tips you’ll wish you knew about sooner:
Tip #1: Start Reading
No, we’re not talking about reading a novel while walking around (although you can, if you’d like), but to purchase a travel guide. Although most would rather decline this option, many travel guides are filled with money saving information to help you get the most for your money. In addition: most travel guides are cheap to purchase and are pocket sized.

Tip #2: Eat Locally

This may sound like an oxymoron in terms of traveling, but it’s actually a money-saving tip worth knowing. Although you may feel inclined to eat at well-known grub spots, eating at  a local hotspot instead will save you some dough. After all, most big name restaurants raise their prices tremendously because they know tourists flock to their joint frequently.

Tip #3: Go Against the Grain

Plan on visiting a tourist hotspot around a big holiday? While that trip might make for the most Instagram-worthy photos, it’s not worth the stress of paying more out of pocket. When booking your trip, think about planning your trip for a week that doesn’t fall around a major holiday that’s local/global. You’ll be saving more money than you could ever imagine!

Tip #4: Bring On the Green

Although you may be getting rewards by using your credit card, paying with cash is better. Besides avoiding fees by using plastic, physical currency will be much more universal (and cheaper to use). In addition: by using cash, you’ll avoid the chance of having ~mysterious~ fees added to your monthly statement, too.

Tip #5: Don’t Go Alone

Even though you may be inclined to go solo, bring a friend. When staying at certain hotels, it may be cheaper to book a single room with two beds than book two separate rooms. Think about it: you and your travel buddy can split the cost of the room, and any additional amenities you may encounter.

Underrated Long Island Towns to Visit

Sure, New York City is great, but sometimes you just want to get away from the hustle and bustle of it all. Especially during the warm weather — it’s a scorcher out there these days, am I right? Escape the crowd and plan a weekend getaway to one of these underrated but awesome Long Island towns.

Shelter Island

This small island is situated between the north and south forks of Long Island. Shelter Island is home to unforgettable scenic beauty, gorgeous beaches, rolling farmland, and great places to stay.

While you’re there: Make time to visit the historic Sylvester Manor Educational Farm. Here you’ll be able to learn about food, culture, and history.


Most Long Islanders breeze right by the Town of Mattituck on the way to Greenport, but next time you’re planning a trip to the East End, we highly recommend this pretty little town in the heart of Wine Country.

While you’re there: Plan a trip to Love Lane. This charming street is home to some of our favorite shops. While you wait for a table at the delicious Love Lane Kitchen, indulge in some wine from the Roanoke Vineyards Wine Bar and cheese from The Village Cheese Shop.


When you think of Riverhead, you probably think of the Tanger Outlets, but there’s so much more to do here than just shopping. There’s something to do for children and adults of all ages!

While you’re there: Book an East End Bike Tour and visit the Martha Clara Vineyards. Not into biking? Book a ticket on the Long Island Aquarium’s Tour Boat Adventure instead.

Once you’ve planned your trip, let Dynasty Limousine get you there! Our fleet can accommodate groups of all sizes. We even offer competitive Wine Tour Packages. For more information and to make a reservation, contact us at 631-587-8500.

Guys, you may not realize it, but the story of how you proposed will actually be told for the rest of your life. You better make it good! There are even companies dedicate to planning marriage proposals, like The Yes Girls Events. To take some of the heat off, we’re here with some romantic ways to propose that will make her sure to say, “YES!”

Creative Marriage Proposals

Be creative. Your marriage proposal gives you the opportunity to add a personal touch. What do the two of you love? Is there something she’s always hinted at? If you’re going to do it go all out and don’t be afraid to ask for help. You’re loved ones are sure to be willing to lend a helping hand.

At-Home Marriage Proposals

Do the two of you value your Netflix and Chill time? Do you frequently stay in more than you go out? Home is where the heart — so decorate your digs with gorgeous candles and flowers and propose in the place where your relationship has blossomed. Afterward, invite your friends and family and friends over to toast your love.

Destination Marriage Proposals

Want your proposal to be more intimate? Whisk her away to a surprise destination and use the beautiful, natural scenery to set the scene. Pro Tip: Don’t wait until the end of your trip. You’ll want to bask in the newly engaged bliss before heading back to reality.

Public Marriage Proposal

Today, truly public marriage proposals are going out of style. They are viewed as attention seeking and less than intimate. Rather than making a public spectacle, arrange to have both of your families go incognito somewhere nearby where they can view the proposal as it happens and make plans for a surprise engagement party to follow. Can you think of better way to share the news with your loved ones?

Once she’s said yes, let the planning begin! If you have any questions about renting the right transportation for your wedding party’s needs, contact us today at 631-587-8500.

Since 1988, Dynasty Limousine has been the ideal choice for brides and grooms in and around the Long Island area. Our massive fleet of limousines, party buses and shuttles will make it easy for everyone from the Bride and Groom to the wedding party and guests to travel in style and comfort!
