Tip 1: Pre-paying helps spread travel costs

Pre-paying for leisure travel hotel stays can help with budgeting and paying for the trip. You will know exact costs early, and it lessens the burden of the costs during the trip itself. Many hotel chains now offer cheaper pre-paid rates. Make sure you are aware of cancellation penalties.  Vacation rentals (e.g. Airbnb) also often require a portion of the total rental to be pre-paid as a deposit.
