Plan your

cross-country road trip

on a budget

Is there anything more magical than a cross-country road trip?  To make it possible, you have to stretch every dollar, which also stretches out the time you get to spend on back road adventuring!

Every awesome road trip starts with deciding where to go. Keep your cost goals in mind, but don’t let them dictate your whole journey. 

Step 1: Make an Adventure Plan

Plug your stops into Google Maps to budget for gas and transportation costs, then make a budget for food and attractions.

Step 2: Make a Budget and Start Saving

Consider camping as a way to stretch your dollar. A good tent costs about the same amount as a night or two in a hotel.

Step 3: Plan and Reserve Your Lodging
