It’s a well-known fact that travelling to any new destination during peak season can be a little on the expensive side, but that doesn’t mean that you have to necessarily pay astronomical prices to have a good time with your family. If you’re planning a family trip to Toronto sometime this summer, there are plenty of affordable yet very enjoyable fully furnished accommodations and activities in which you can partake without breaking the bank. As long as you plan your trip thoroughly in advance and create a general itinerary to help keep you and your family organized, then the opportunities for safe and fun family travels in Toronto are endless!

Plan Your Travel Date Properly

The best way to budget for your family to travel to Toronto is to plan your trip well in advance and do some research on the biggest attractions the city has to offer. Try to see if you can find special family discounts or deals online. A lot of family friendly attractions offer special group rates or discounted prices for families with young children. In the summer time there are tons of cultural street and food festivals that are free to attend, although you’ll have to pay to dine at the restaurants. From a variety of community rib fests to Taste of the Danforth and many more, you’re bound to find lots of fun festivities and cultures to explore with your family when you travel to Toronto.

Choose Short-Term Rentals Instead of Hotels

Fully furnished short-term rentals are like affordable homes away from home that feature everything you and your family needs to make your temporary stay in Toronto as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Hotels, on the other hand, often feel as if you’re staying in someone else’s home and aren’t allowed to touch anything or truly make yourself feel at home. In a fully furnished accommodation, you have the freedom to come and go as you please and you can save a great deal of money by purchasing your own groceries and cooking some of your meals at home rather than having to go out for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day. You also have access to other amenities such as ensuite laundry units and cleaning services.

Choose Transportation Carefully

If you want to truly integrate yourself and your family in the comings and goings of Toronto life, then you need to experience taking public transit at least once or twice. This is perhaps the most efficient way to get around the city and see the sights in the process, especially is you plan to temporarily stay in Toronto. Some people might prefer taking taxis or ride share services, but these can get pricey very quickly. Taking public transit allows you to purchase daily, weekly, or monthly passes for your entire family, which is an excellent way to save some money during your family travel to Toronto.
