From the California deserts to the southern U.S. there are great festivals around the country and even the world offering opportunities to hear your favorite artists and enjoy an entire weekend of the best music.

With all the good that comes with a music festival trip, there can be some downsides, the biggest of which is often the cost.

So how can you spend time listening to your favorite music without breaking the bank?

Look for Discounted Tickets

If you take the time to look online and explore all your options, you might just find some pretty heavily discounted tickets for various festivals. A source like StubHub might not necessarily be your best option because tickets on there tend to be marked up quite a bit by both individuals and professional resellers. Instead, look at sources like Craigslist, where people who end up having their plans change are looking for a quick way to get rid of their tickets.

Getting rid of an old car is a challenging task for most people, especially those who have established strong connections with their automobiles. Many people who choose to keep their old cars enjoy reduced payments and other perks associated with such models. However, there are times when common sense needs to kick in. It does not make sense to have a car that has a mileage of more than 300,000 and produces unhealthy smoke from its engine. Here are three classic signs that indicate it is time to get a new car.

Rising Cost of Insurance

Insurance companies do not like older cars. The most common reason is for this distaste is that older cars have few safety features when compared to new models. Hence, they are more likely to get involved in accidents. Even if you have a spotless driving record, the insurance premiums will begin to rise as the car gets older. You need to pay close attention to your insurance premiums and determine whether it is cost-effective to keep the car. Consider replacing the car if the insurance premiums surpass the regular maintenance costs. Some insurance companies will notify you about the significant increase. Some companies will even require you to sign a new contract or terminate the current policy.

Repair Costs Exceed the Value of the Car

It is normal to repair cars occasionally. But an increased number of visits to the mechanic can have a significant impact on your budget. A vehicle that stalls on the road and at the traffic lights will waste your time and cost a fortune to repair. Old vehicles usually exhibit the same mechanical problems repeatedly. There are some people who have even parted with more than $2,000 to repair a vehicle that is worth $500. It would be foolish to pay such colossal amounts of money to have the vehicle fixed when you could replace it with a new one.

Investing in reliable transportation doesn’t mean spending money you cannot afford on a vehicle that’s got all the bells, whistles, and luxury. It doesn’t mean buying a luxury car so you can keep up with the neighbors or driving something you’re not comfortable in. It means buying a vehicle you can count on to get you where you want to go when you need to go. It means driving a vehicle that’s safe, reliable, and doesn’t leave you wondering if you’ll make it where you need to go at the end of the day. If you’re not convinced it’s time to invest in reliable transportation, perhaps you haven’t found a compelling reason to spend the money.

Minimize Your Chance of Accidents

It’s not always something drivers think about, but it’s worth considering. If you drive a vehicle that has a specific lack of reliability, you run the risk of being involved in an accident that’s potentially greater than the traditional risk. Let’s use the example of someone who drives a vehicle with numerous mechanical issues that breaks down regularly. If you’re driving 75 miles per hour during heavy traffic on a five-lane highway and your car stalls or stops in the middle of the road, you run a huge risk of being hit by vehicles driving very fast.
