Taking a road trip this summer? One of the biggest expenses is always the gas bill. Thankfully, gas prices this summer are lower than the wallet-burning levels we saw last year. But it’s always smart to shave the price of gas with a hotel deal that includes free gas cards.

One of our favorite summer travel hacks is to look for hotels offering free gas card promotions. With values up to $75, these cards can often cover a tank of gas. And many come with special hotel room discounts.

Note: Hotels update their promotions on a regular basis, so some of these deals may be updated or discontinued. Always check with the hotel.
