In this article, we’re going to give you some tips on how to travel while on a budget, which will help a lot in case you want to travel, but money is not on your side. If you’re curious, read this article to know what those tips are and have fun for your vacation!
Choose from What You Want to Do
Before you buy any of the tickets, make sure to plan first on what you want to do on your vacation. For example, if you’re thinking to relax, perhaps spending your vacation in a cruise might be the one for you.
Or perhaps you want to go shopping, maybe go to a country that is cheap on products and souvenirs. By knowing what you want to do, this will save your time while at the same time pinpointing the cheapest place you can go to.
Eat Where the Locals Eat
Usually, as we reached the destination, we eat at the mall, looking for foods. Trust us; if you’re eating on the mall it’s a tourist trap as it might cost double or even triple compared to where the locals eat, besides since you’re on vacation why not try eating something new?
If you want to save money, consider eating on where the locals do, you can either do this by researching on the internet or ask the locals themselves on where to eat tasty yet affordable for the wallet.
Look for Hotel Alternatives
If you’re going to look for accommodations, a hotel will most likely be in your head when you’re thinking about it. Trust us that there are better places to stay rather than paying the hotel your hard-earned money.
Hotels can be quite expensive, and they have a quite early checkout time, so make sure to look for alternatives. Airbnb might be one of the solutions that you can use.
Bring a Water Bottle
If the country you’re going has a drinkable water fountain, bringing a water bottle might be a good idea. You can always buy a water bottle from the supermarket, and it might only cost a few cents or a dollar. Although cheap, it is much better to save as much as you can, so consider bringing a water bottle.
