We have a home at the edge of a bay on one of the Great Lakes. We have been here for a few years and rent a fishing boat to take out for some fishing trips on the lake. We often go out for two or three days of fishing with friends and family. We are now looking at boats for sale. Our home has a nice dock that would be perfect for a fishing boat big enough to take three to five people on the lake for a couple of days comfortably.

We want a sturdy boat that will handle the rough weather that can pop up while out on the water. The number one thing we do is to monitor the weather hourly for changes when out on the lake. ...continue reading Deciding Between Living and Fishing Luxury for Our New Boat

If there's one thing we all need more of it's holidays. There's nothing quite like taking time away from the daily grind and relaxing and de-stressing. However, for many of us, it's simply not on the budget, and we might not think a break in this country or abroad is possible. Luckily, there are many ways you can travel on a cheap budget and enjoy more time away, and here are a few areas where you can save cash.

Flights

Cheap flights are everywhere nowadays, and if you do your research online you can often get amazing deals. Don't just look at budget airlines, use comparison tools as well, and you might find that some flag carriers work out cheaper once you factor in extras such as luggage.

You can save money on flights by:

  • Only taking hand luggage – check the dimensions online
  • Going out of peak times – i.e. early mornings and late at night
  • Travelling outside of school holidays
  • Using lesser known airlines –check comparison sites
  • Using smaller, regional airports – these can sometimes be cheaper

Spend some time shopping around, and don't assume that the earlier you book the cheaper it'll be. Prices often fluctuate, and there are tools online which show when your booking is likely to be cheapest.

Save on extras

From getting to the airport, to transfers at the other side, there are lots of extras involved with travelling. However, it's easy to find the best deals. Look for cheap airport parking in Melbourne online and you'll save lots of money compared with rates charged on the day. Using car parks that offer a shuttle bus is usually cheaper than using the official car parks attached to airports. When it comes to transfers at the other end, look for hotels that throw in an airport transfer for free, as this will save you a lot on coach trips.

Insurance

If you book a package holiday, it often asks if you want insurance, and most people just tick 'yes'. However, you're not under any obligation to buy the travel company's insurance, and it's not always the best deal. If you go away a lot, consider an annual policy as this can work out cheaper. Just make sure you read the terms and conditions, and make sure whatever insurance you book is adequate to meet your needs.

Going away doesn't have to cost a fortune. In fact, with the internet as a research tool it's never been easier to save money. Just shop around, be prepared to make compromises, and take your time to find the best deal. Whether it's last minute, or you're booking way in advance, there are always ways to make things cheaper if you're willing to look around, so everything from your flight to your airport parking could be less expensive. You then have more money in your pocket to enjoy yourself once you get to your destination.

When my twin daughters told me they were both asked to the prom, I knew that it was going to be one of the best nights of their lives up to that point. I knew both of their boyfriends, and they were also planning on going with quite a few of their good friends. In total, there were 10 couples who wanted to go together, so I talked to my husband and all of the other parents about looking into a Platinum party bus rental in Toronto to make their special night even more memorable.

As far as I knew, none of them had ever been in a regular limo let alone a party bus, so it was going to be a night to remember for quite some time. I do admit that I had ulterior motives as well. I wanted them to get to the prom safely, which meant having a designated driver. Since so many wanted to go together, I was worried that they might try to fit too many in different vehicles, which would be a major distraction for all of them. I would rather have a professional driver taking them so they would be able to focus on just having fun.

Thankfully, the other parents were all in agreement, and I offered to get a quote. I knew that it all depended on the price since proms can be quite expensive even without a limo bus. Since there were 20 kids going, we were able to split the price up 20 different ways. Some, like me, had to pay for two portions, but even that was not as much as I thought it would be. The kids were all surprised when we told them, and their happiness alone made it all worth it. They had a blast that night, and I know a good bit of it was because of the party bus before and after the prom!

The CEO wanted a stretch limo to take the 10 of us to a training session every day for a week. I saw an advertisement from a limo company online inviting customers to visite our site for the best limos and party buses. I had heard of party buses, but I never saw the inside of one until I visited the limo company's website. I had to take a ride out to the limousine company to get an in-person look for myself. I sat in three or four limos before seeing the inside of the first party bus. I had to at least make a comparison. The CEO said he wanted a stretch limo, but I took that to mean he just wanted us to travel in style. He is like that with us. He gives us a lot of respect and does his best to treat us well.

Though I am not an executive, I made an executive decision to go ahead and rent the party bus after seeing the inside. They are so much more comfortable than regular limos. You can get in and out of them really easy. None of us would have to stoop and crawl to get in and out. The first few passengers going in any stretch limo have to crawl along the seats the farthest. There is no way to do that with any style when you are wearing office attire. I cannot imagine it is comfortable in tuxes or wedding gowns either. The party bus has steps and you can stand up inside them. You can get up while on the road and move to another seat. We would not be needing the dance pole. At least I hoped not. Anyway, I got an interesting look from the CEO when he saw the party bus pull up to pick us up on Monday. Then, after the ride to the training center, he told me I made a great decision.

I knew that I was going to get a limo for a special event, but I didn't know which one. I knew that it would need to be a stretch limo because there were nearly 20 of us planning on going on this trip. It was even possible that there was going to be more people than that, so I wanted to find out all my options so I would know when we had to start saying no to people. When I started looking at options, I discovered a party bus in Toronto. For as long as I have been a resident here, I never knew there was such a thing!

These buses are pretty cool. They hold anywhere from a dozen people up to 50 people. I had no idea that a limo could even hold that many people, so I felt relieved because I really did not want to tell anyone that they could not join us on this trip. I decided to hold a meeting to see who all wanted to go so I could get a more accurate count, and that is how I knew that I would need to rent one of the buses that would hold at least 40 people.

When we all boarded the bus, it was neat to hear so many people be amazed with it. I can completely understand that because I was the same way. It definitely looked like a party had exploded into the bus, and I mean that in a good way. It was really great to hear everyone have so much fun, and I have a feeling that we are all going to want to do this again. The price is right, the ride is comfortable, and we had so much fun that it only makes sense to make trips like this a regular occurrence.

When my husband retires at the end of the month, I am going to surprise him with a nice night out on the town. I don't mean clubbing or anything, as we are about 30 years past our prime for doing that. But, as we got older, other things became more important to us. Now, we would rather go to the theater or a play, listen to a concert or opera performance, or just enjoy a nice meal at a restaurant. Since I wanted this to be extra special, I went to the Paradise Toronto limo service website to see how much their vehicle rentals are.

I wanted something more than just a regular car, so I went with one of their limos. They have a white stretch limo and a black stretch limo that will seat between eight and ten people, so I knew one of those would be perfect. I want our three children and their spouses to be with us on this occasion. None of them have had families of their own yet, so the 10 passenger white stretch limo would be plenty big enough for all of us.

The nice thing is that it has a bar on one side. While none of us are heavy drinkers, I knew that we would want to celebrate this occasion with a few toasts. Since we don't have to worry about driving, it would not be a big deal at all to have a few toasts, or even more. I looked at pictures of the limo, and I just know we are going to have fun. We are going to all meet at our house, then the limo will come pick us up. We are actually going to have it take us to London since his favorite seafood restaurant is there, and I can't think of a more fun way to get there!
