Colorado Vacation Savings

Insider Tips for Vail & Beaver Creek on the Cheap

There’s No Rule That “Vacation” = “EXPENSIVE”

…or if there is a rule, we all know rules are made to be broken!

True, there are certain unavoidable expenses for your Vail trip – like airfare, lodging and lift tickets – but start by checking out the hottest deals from Priceline for all your reservations.

For everything else, from activities, to shopping, to entertainment expenses, some budget-saving strategy will take your dollar a lot farther!

Your best bet for saving money on your visit to Vail and Beaver Creek is to plan ahead!

Don’t wait until the kids are starving to decide where to eat. (You’ll end up buying a $20 hamburger just to avoid a meltdown.) Wandering into the closest bar for your Apres Ski might not land you the best Happy Hour Specials. Why pay full price for expensive activities like snowmobiling or horseback riding when many tour guides are offering discounted rates? A little advance planning will go a long way.

Become a “Coupon Clipper”!

WhatToDo has the largest selection of Vail coupons around. From our website, you can print, email and share coupons – and find significant savings on some often-pricey vacation expenses! Just a few examples…

Bike rentals? No problem check out this 20% off coupon from Vail Sports or $34.99 for Vail Pass Shuttle Ride from Wheel Base! Also, save big with tons of Rafting Discounts from area guides. Plus, coupons for other great activities like guided fishing, train rides and zip lines!

Eating out is a big expense – and nightlife expenses can be even worse…. But how does a $4 Margarita sound after a day on the slopes? Or a FREE PINT of beer? Or 15% off from Pazzo’s Pizza?

Family entertainment doesn’t have to break the budget. Get $15 off a wild west dinner and show at 4 Eagle Ranch! Or head to Glenwood Springs for the Vaudeville and get a free dessert with dinner.

Is a massage or spa treatment “too expensive” to justify? Pamper your wallet and your nerves with $20 off a facial or $15 off a delicious massage!

Interested in checking out Colorado’s legal marijuana scene without forking out a ton of money? Try a Keef Cola for $5 at Nature’s Spirit in Leadville. Or get a free penny joint with a $20 purchase at Roots Rx.

Happy Hour Specials and Daily Deals Calendar

Yes, one of the best things about being on vacation is forgetting what day it is…but – when each day is packed with the different restaurant deals and happy hour specials – it pays off to keep to a schedule. At least a little bit 🙂

Bloody Mary Bar? Mussels and Martinis? All-you-can-eat [fill in the blank]? Even daily discounts for activity reservations. It’s ALL there on our Specials calendar so why not plan your trip around the discounts?
