How to Travel on a Budget


Research and Anticipate!

First of all, you need to look at all your options and see that makes sense to you both in price and in quality. 

And do it in advance! The earlier you start planning, the more probable it’ll be for you to find good deals. 

Pick Low-Key Dates

Obviously, the prices during the holidays, breaks and long weekends go up because the demand goes up! Choose a non-holiday season to travel so you can get lower prices!

At the same time, traveling mid-week can be cheaper than flying over the weekend or the rest of the week!

Travel with Friends

If you can, get your friends together to travel! This way, you can split costs and make your trip more cost-efficient. 

Plan!

Plan your activities, your money, your transportation, etc.! This will get you financially ready and you won’t be aimlessly going around!

Hire a Travel Agency

Many times, travel agencies have the best deals for you because they are in constant contact with airlines and hotels, which means they can get discounts, special offers and cheaper packages.

Ease Up on the Packing

Don’t make your suitcases overflow with clothing and other necessities! Specially if you have a weight limit on your checked baggage, you may not want to go overboard. Plus, you should leave some space for all the souvenirs you'll be bringing back! (If you want to learn how to avoid losing your bag while traveling, click on the link!)

Watch Your Appetite

Food can be expensive, and while you should try the local cuisine, you can resort to some tips to save up a little cash!

First, if you’re staying for quite some time, get groceries and prepare your own food. You can also choose a hotel that serves breakfast so you can save up on that meal. Lastly, try eating lunch (dinner can be more expensive) at places who aren’t close to the “touristy” stuff which is usually overpriced.

Move Around

Get comfortable with public transportation and with walking! A lot of times getting from one place to another can be costly, so plan your routes and even share a cab if you have to.

Work Your Social Skills

Talking to locals can be an easy way to save cash! They know the best places to go, the way to move around, and they may even have recommendations on what to do if you’re on a budget.

Plan the Cash!

Yes, you should make a budget for your whole trip, but you can even do a budget for each day! Take your money for a specific day (and a bit extra) and leave your credit card where you’re staying to avoid temptation!

Get Free!

There’s probably a lot of places that offer free tours and/or free entrance so you can take the culture in without spending as much!

Traveling doesn’t have to be expensive if you plan it right! If you’re thinking about packing up and take a vacation in the future, make sure to follow these tips so you can enjoy your trip without worrying about the money.
