San Diego Comic-Con will be here next month, and Million Mile Secrets has a guide to cutting costs wherever you can.
The list of events for the convention will be coming soon, but here’s a few of the tips. Some of the time frames have passed for this year’s convention, but there are still some good tips and you can always bookmark the list for next year.
Getting around: “If you’re somewhat local and have the ability to drive instead of fly, you might want to consider taking the train, instead. Between gas and parking fees, taking the train could end up saving you tons of money!
“For example, a one-way ticket from Los Angeles to San Diego through Amtrak will set you back just $40.00! That certainly beats having to rent a car, fuel up for gas, and still pay for parking when you arrive at Comic Con.”
Staying at places other than at a hotel: “Finding available houses through Airbnb should be relatively easy for the month of July. A lot of locals will know that demand is high, and many of them will rent out spare rooms or even an entire apartment to make a little extra cash.” But “Book an Airbnb with a good cancellation policy, and use it as a backup. If you end up with an awesome hotel through Hotelpocalypse, you’ll probably want those accommodations over an Airbnb!”
Food: “At the end of the day, if things are just too hectic for you, there’s always the option of ordering something from Uber Eats or Postmates. I’ve found the ETAs are pretty accurate, so you can maximize your time at the convention and not have to wait in long lines at restaurants.”
