I want to minimize my travel expenses to save money for my second procedure if needed etc. I will be flying from the Midwest to San Diego. I\'m looking for information on cheaper hotels and motels near the airport or general area with easy access to shuttle . Any information of cost saving ideas would be appreciated. I have already found round trips flights around the 250 mark and that will work. I want stay up for up 4 nights arrive Monday leave Thursday to work on post care and any follow up appointments with Dr.C.
If you really want to minimize costs, you could look into Airbnb near the clinic and just take an Uber to and from. I saw some for around $30-$40 a night. Motel 6 at the border on the US side is about $60 plus tax, and then you still need to shuttle into TJ. I ended up paying $75 a night at the Hotel Grand Tijuana--how much are you looking to spend?
I just booked through Expedia for a multi-day stay and got the rate, but according to Avanti you can also call and let them know you\'re a patient in order to get a discounted rate. If your range is $60-75, then at $75 a night, it might just be worth it to stay there and not have to pay for cabs and go through border checks in and out each day.
Get a jetblue credit card. If you spend 1000 in the first 2 months I believe, you will get 30,000 free points. That is enough for 3-4 round trips from your location. Get a Hyatt Gold membership (free) I think it is after 9 stays you get some free. I forget the breakdown. Don\'t skimp on bad accomodations. The Grand or the Hyatt is your best bet - I liked the Hyatt better in general.
