Tips For Cutting Down (NAPS)--If your college- bound high school junior is interested in multiple uni- versities, it may be tempting to just yell "road trip!" But campus tours can mean thou- sands of dollars in travel costs. Fortunately, there are ways to visit colleges and univer- sities without breaking the bank. Here are a few tips to save money on college tours: Work with your teenager to do as much research as possible from home. Read col- lege viewbooks, catalogs, Web sites, newspapers and activ- ity calendars, and have him or her talk to currently enrolled students or alumni _about their alma mater to get a feel for the school before visiting. After research, you may find that there are fewer colleges on the list. Even if they're not inter- ested in them, have your stu- dent check out colleges close to home to compare large schools to small schools. This could help them discover what they don't want and help nar- row the list even further. Once the school list is finalized, map them out into regions and try to combine a number of college tours into one road trip. Before making travel plans, check with college admissions offices for any travel deals or other added incentives at local hotels. For example, now through Dec. 7, 2009, by booking a room at a Hampton hotel at Hampton.com and entering the promotional code "CAM- PUS," you will be entered to win a drawing for $5,000, which could go toward your On Costly College Visits Before planning to take a col- lege tour, ask admission offices for any travel deals or incentives at nearby hotels. student's tuition. If you book far enough ahead, you can take advantage of the hotel's Advance Purchase Promotion to receive 15 percent offyour stay. - Take advantage of air- line and hotel loyalty pro- grams, such as Hilton HHonors, to use points instead of cash for your accommodations. Ask friends if their chil- dren are looking into visit- ing any of the same schools. Coordinate simultaneous trips with them to split the cost of gas and lodging. Turn your family vacation into a college visit trip, tack- ing on an extra vacation day to -isit a school or bringing your student on a business trip if there are colleges nearby. Look into your student's high school to see if they orga- nize college tours, which may be more affordable, or search online for "college tours" to find a company that provides campus tours, which can save you time organizing trips. By planning ahead, not only will you save some cash, but your teen will get more out of the trip, allowing him or her to determine which school is a good match.
