Planning a trip? Having a guide is great but it can also cost a lot! No more! Check out the sites below and find out how you can take a vacation like a local and save money at the same time!

1. Localyte.com: You can ask travel questions to locals for FREE! Find out the best places to stay, where to eat and what attractions are must-see in the area you are traveling. 

2. HipHost.com: Need a tour? Check this website out for local tours, some do have fees but many are free. We found one in Chicago from a history teacher and it didn't cost a thing! Before getting lost on your next vacation, sign up for a tour!

3. Visitor's Bureau: No matter where you go, ALWAYS and I mean, ALWAYS check with the local Visitor's Bureau either online or even better, when you arrive in the city. You will not only find coupons and exclusive deals but you can also chat with those who actually live in that city and can give you the best advice.
