Planning an Affordable New York City Trip

Affordable New York City Trip

I’m heading back to NYC!

I still remember the first time I headed to NYC, which was a couple summers back, I told myself after that visit, I was going to go back every year…it’s been over 3 years. I loved the city so much but unfortunately, time and work just never allowed me to go back. Until now!

Thanks to my friends at Expedia, I’m heading back to the Big Apple, in the next couple weeks. I’m super excited about this trip because the last time I visited NYC, it was the summer but this time I get to explore the city in the winter.

While New York is pricy, it’s not as bad as Stockholm: which Sambla says is the most expensive city to travel to in their new Swedish money market analysis. I’m here to save the day with  NYC Travel Tips!

Booking an Affordable New York City Trip

The best way to find an affordable trip is to research! For my New York trip, I headed to and selected the Flight and Hotel option as I needed both for my trip. What’s great about this option is that if you only needed a hotel, you can easily look for just that. Since New York is doable by car, this might be the perfect choice for you. Next, I selected my dates and let Expedia do all the work!

Since I can be picky about where I want to stay, I used the right sidebar to really narrow my search down. I selected 4-star hotels and hotels located in the Broadway – Times Square area. I also used the top menu bar to list my search results by price. This ensures that you will get the BEST price possible.  Once my search results were ready, I used the ‘View Map’ option to find my perfect hotel in the area I wanted.

Stay tuned to my Instagram and next NYC post to see what hotel I selected!
