As the seasons change and the temperature drops, this is usually the time of year our urge for something different kicks in. Whether you’re looking to extend the fun of summer, get away with the girls, or relocate for a month or longer, read below for ideas worth exploring.  

1. Enjoy Outdoor Adventure – One of the things that makes summer so special is spending time outside doing activities we love like swimming, hiking, golfing, biking, and yes…pickleball. So why not have a “second summer” with a trip to a place where you can enjoy your favorite things. Traveling on your own time now to places like national parks, beaches, golf resorts, and hotels will likely mean less crowds.

Tip: Traveling off-season often means lower prices on airfare and hotel stays, so you’ve got that going for you. Plus, when AARP members rent their car from Budget, they enjoy extra savings. Save up to 35% OFF when you select the “Pay Now” option. 

2. Road Trip With the Gals – The time with your BFFs is time well spent. Nothing compares to the special bond you share. Let the good times roll with a road trip celebrating your special friendship. Whether it’s a culinary adventure or cultural exploration, great memories are guaranteed. Plan ahead, create a fun playlist for the ride, and pack your favorite happy hour snacks and cocktail/mocktail ingredients so you can settle right in when you reach your destination.

Tip: Get there in comfort with enough room for everyone and their luggage when you rent with Budget. AARP members enjoy free upgrades when they’re available and additional exclusive benefits. Don’t miss a minute of the fun. Enroll in Budget Fastbreak for a quick exit from the rental counter. It’s smart, simple, and fast. 

3. Relocate To Try a New Place on for Size. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in a different city or state? Consider relocating for a month or more to immerse yourself in a place that offers up a whole new set of experiences. With short-term housing or long-term motel options, it’s totally doable. 

Tip: If you’re flying to your relocation destination, you’ll need a vehicle to fully get a sense of what the area has to offer. Budget has a plan perfect for this scenario. Their long-term rentals mean you can enjoy 10% off base rates on rentals of 28 consecutive days or more at participating locations.  

The travel options are endless. Now all you have to do is decide where you’ll go this season. Enjoy the excitement of something new even more when you save up to 30% off base rates, plus get an upgrade on compact through full-size car class bookings (based on availability), and get an additional driver at no cost with your AARP exclusive member benefits.  

Your next great memory awaits!
