To save or not to save. Travel tips honeymoon items to help you budget.

For early risers or after a long day, room service is a luxury usually worth the splurge. Here are some travel tips to let you know where you can save or splurge if you wish.

Save on these items:

1. Your airplane seat. Instead of paying to upgrade, wait until you check in to ask if there are seats in the exit row. As long as you are willing to be called upon in an emergency, they are typically available at no additional charge and provide extra leg room. Perfect for a long flight.

2. Mini bar and bottled water. Stop paying an arm and a leg for pint-sized beverages. Pack a refillable water bottle to stay hydrated during your travels. If you are looking to unwind with an adult beverage pick up a bottle at the local liquor store or airport gift shop.

3. In-room Wi-Fi. Most hotels now offer this service for free. If your accommodation doesn’t, head to the lobby for a free signal and some company. If you would rather be alone, consider using your phone as a tether to access your wireless data plan.

4. Departing airport. If you are flying to the U.S., consider crossing the U.S.-Canada border to save money. Flights are often considerably cheaper, upwards of 25 per cent, when flying out from Buffalo or Detroit, making the drive worthwhile.

Splurge on these:

1. Room service. Although often pricey, if you are preparing for a long day, treating yourself to breakfast in bed is not a bad way to start the morning and save time. Alternatively, returning to your room after a long day out may warrant a cozy dinner in.

2. Airplane meal. Flying can be stressful, and long. So there’s no reason to add hunger to the mix. If your flight does not include a meal, consider adding one at the time of booking.

3. Good suitcase. Your luggage is the one thing protecting your personal items along the journey. Invest in a quality suitcase that is ideally not black. This way it is easily identifiable when waiting at the luggage carousel.

4. Nexus. If you are a frequent traveler, investing the time and money in Nexus can be invaluable for saving time at the airport.

The following cities have recently recorded average nightly hotel price decreases to get the most for your travel dollars like Bangkok, Thailand (down 15 per cent). And Cannes, France (down 12 per cent) without sacrificing local experiences and attractions. If you are looking to visit a city like New York which historically has higher rates, check out surrounding suburbs like Brooklyn to find affordable accommodation well worth the commute.
