Memorial Day travel is expected to hit its highest level since 2005, with the AAA predicting that 39.3 million Americans will take a holiday weekend trip this year. It's a road trip for 88.1 percent of those travelers, while 5.5 percent will fly.
Whatever your vacation plans — beach, mountain or big city — here's how to make the most of every dollar spent:
More than two-thirds of vacationers cop to
A stealth budget buster: the intersection of travel season and wedding season. In a recent Priceline.com survey, 15 percent of travelers say they have spent more than $1,000 on wedding-related travel.
If there's a wedding (or more likely, weddings) on your summer calendar, factor those in as part of your overall budget, says Sophia Bera, a certified financial planner and founder of Gen Y Planning in Austin, Texas. You may need to be selective on which events you RSVP "yes" to.
"You don't have to go to every wedding you're invited to," she told CNBC. "Financially, you might not be able to."
Before you book that fabulous deal, verify the site offering it is legit. An estimated 15 million "bad bookings" are linked to phony websites and call centers, according to the American Hotel & Lodging Association, an advocacy group that represents the hotel industry.
Falling for a scam could mean you lose your deposit — and arrive at your destination to find out you don't have a place to stay.
"Prices are based on where people are interested in going, and the dates people are interested in traveling," said Patrick Surry, chief data scientist at Hopper Research.
For example, travelers may be able to score better deals if they can time their trip at the beginning or end of summer, when most kids are still in school. You can also take advantage of search engine capabilities to see which destinations currently have the best deals (and best fares from your home airport).

Picking the right credit card to use for travel bookings and on-the-ground expenses can offer a range of benefits, from great international exchange rates to trip protections and rewards to offset future vacations. A recent WalletHub.com analysis estimated that the right plastic could save international travelers up to 9 percent, or boost a domestic traveler's budget by up to $625.
Plus, a credit card can offer better protections while you're traveling, compared to cash.
"If you are traveling and your credit card is stolen, then it can usually be replaced," Frommer's editorial director Pauline Frommer told CNBC. "I cannot tell you how many letters we get from readers who have lost everything to pickpockets, so it really is a mistake to carry around a lot of cash. "
Of course, you'll have to curb the temptation to overspend. Credit card balances have been creeping up, and that debt could be a nasty vacation souvenir.
