A New York Rendezvous To Bermuda Without Breaking The Bank

When you’re looking for a break, but you don’t want to break the bank, you might start to think that some warm sunny beaches are beyond you. And of course, traveling from the world’s busiest city is going to cost even more, right? Well, it is possible to travel from New York to the sunny coral sands of Bermuda on a budget. No, it’s not free, but it’s not going to hurt if you take advantage of these key travel tips:

Set Up At Home To Get Away

Planning kind of goes against that last minute getaway most of us try to take advantage of. After all, last-minute fares are supposed to be cheaper, right? You might be more likely to end up with a travel disaster if you book late. Some airlines overbook to make sure every seat is taken. Chances are it’s you that gets bumped to another flight that won’t be nearly as convenient.

 

 

Book a little ahead to take advantage of good prices and better availability. It also gives you the chance to make sure your home is taken care of in your absence. Pets can go into boarding, and your boss won’t go mad that you’ve gone away with no notice. Flights with a week to go might cost under 450 dollars round trip, and a non-stop flight will have you touching down in under 2 ½ hours.

 

Accommodation

When you get there, your biggest bill is likely to be for accommodations. Fortunately, there are plenty of choices. Options like Airbnb can save you a fortune. Of course, a hotel also saves you cleaning and cooking too. For a quick break on a budget, be prepared to accept cheaper accommodations. You’re there for the sun, the beach, and the surf, right? The bedroom shouldn’t matter too much.

 

Eating out might save you a small fortune on food costs if you choose local spots. Like most tourist hotspots, though, you can always find street vendors and popular fast food restaurants nearby. If you’re willing to eat this way, then you might save some money on your meals. But if you’re enjoying the sun then you will probably want lighter meals and more drinks. Consider how far your budget needs to stretch.

 

Vacation Essentials

If New York is cold when you leave, then dig out your summer fashions and bikinis for your trip to Bermuda – there is plenty to do there besides the beach! The weather is (usually) warm and dry for the most part. You’ll want a sun hat and sunscreen too. If you’re not using a hotel, pack a spare beach towel. Sunglasses are a good idea, but do make a point of checking out the true color of those sands! You don’t get to see beaches like that every day.

Of course, you don’t have to do all the tourist things or go out partying every night. A break away can be a quiet time with a good book, that is my personal favorite idea. If your idea is to have a lot of fun, budget wisely to avoid coming home to a scary credit card bill. Are you ready for a break away?

Have you ever dropped everything for a quick trip away? Do you have more tips to add to my list? Tell me more in the comments below! I’m waiting to hear from you.

        I’m still recuperating but I’m going to Ireland in late February. I’m hoping they’ll understand what I’m saying when I get there. 😉

          Ireland sounds spectacular! I’m sure they’re used to enough “yanks” there. You can always use Siri to help you out. Hahaha 😂

            not sure how they’ll adapt to a Yank with a Mizzoura drawl tho.. LOL

            • September 15, 2017 at 12:35 PM

              They’ll find your accent charming. Lots of free drinks and dinner invites.

                and the bar tab afterwards. LOL

                • September 15, 2017 at 12:38 PM

                  I highly doubt it. You need to be able to walk out of the pub.

                    isn’t that why they call them “pub crawls”?

                    • September 15, 2017 at 1:41 PM

                      Possibly how the term came about.

                      yeh, that would make for a long bus ride the next day tho. LOL

                    • September 15, 2017 at 1:47 PM

                      I wouldn’t chance it.

                      LOL. I can see it on Facebook now …

                      “Here’s Trudy. She’s at this pub in Kerry. Here’s Trudy drinking. Isn’t she silly???”

                    • September 15, 2017 at 1:57 PM

                      Exactly, why I don’t drink….

                • September 15, 2017 at 12:39 PM

                  I’m sure you’ll be the recipient of all the love.

                    especially after picking up the tab. LOL

    I went to Bermuda sans Justin a few years ago and my favorite activity was reading on the beach too 🙂 They also have some great restaurants there, so I highly recommend at least one splurge – it’ll be worth it!

      Slowing down to barely move is sometimes the best possible vacation. A battery recharger weekend under the sun!

    Love these tips. I’ve pinned for a future get away reminder!

  5. September 20, 2017 at 2:38 PM

    All great suggestions. I’m a big fan of Air B&B, but so far, only locally. I’ll have to try it out globally. Love this and makes me want to see Bermuda.

    I would give an arm and a leg and maybe even a gonad to see Bermuda! I am so fascinated with the that little speck of an island!

  7. September 24, 2017 at 7:36 PM

    Good tips! I haven’t been to Bermuda, but it always looks so pretty.

    Great pics! The water is amazing!

What do you think? I would like to know.
