RV vacations have been found to be as much as 61 percent less expensive than traditional vacations, according to international travel and tourism research firm PKF Consulting. But there are ways to cut costs even further. NewRVer.com recently offered some tips to save money with various discount programs.
Individuals more than 62 years of age are eligible for the "America the Beautiful Senior Pass." This pass costs $10 and is good for life. It entitles senior citizens a 50 percent reduction in camping fees at most National Park campgrounds and also waives entry fees at National Parks. They can be obtained at National Park offices.
Disabled individuals are entitled to a similar discount pass called the "America the Beautiful Access Pass." Permanently disabled individuals can obtain this pass at National Park offices as well.
Some states, including Washington state, offer residents discounts at state parks as well.
Membership to RV discount clubs like Camping World's President's Club, the Good Sam Club and Campclub USA also entitle members to special discounted rates at campgrounds throughout the country.
