Budget Travel Tip:  Take the Bus

If you have a road trip coming up, but aren’t looking forward to the drive (and won’t need your vehicle after you arrive), check to see if MegaBus is an option.  You’ll find MegaBus across the East Coast and Midwestern US, all over the UK and along Lake Ontario in Canada.

MegaBus is a great option for traveling families.  It will cost you far less than plane tickets, everyone can relax during the drive, wifi and electrical outlets keep everyone powered up and entertained and there is a bathroom on board.  We use MegaBus for all our Chicago trips- the girls look forward to it!
