No More Budget For Your Travel? We Got You.

Travel expenses can be expensive, especially when travelling overseas. With your accommodation, meals, flight ticket, and transportation, your budget can easily be broken. So here are some tips on how you can travel and explore the world while being on a budget.

  1. Have A Plan
    Planning beforehand can help you think about your priorities, allocate your time, and consider your budget. You should have an itinerary per day so that you’ll have an idea on how much time and money you would be spending in a certain city or country.
  1. Travel During Off-Season
    Do not travel during holiday seasons because that is the time of the year that travel agencies take advantage of a lot of families going for a vacation or a family trip and they hike up the prices of almost everything. During off seasons airlines or hotels try to lower their prices to entice more travelers.
  1. Book Your Flight In Advance
    Booking ahead of time means cheaper tickets and smaller fees. You can book your trip for next year during the Christmas season because there are airlines that offer promos and discounts for early birds.
  1. Be An Accommodation Savvy
    If you are on a budget, you don’t want to be spending a lot of money on a one-night stay in a hotel. You can instead choose to stay in a different type of accommodation such as Airbnb or a hostel which are relatively cheaper.
  1. Pack Properly
    When you are packing your things, make sure that you have everything that you need so that you won’t have to buy in your travel destination.
  1. Use Public Transportation
    It is way cheaper to travel using a public transportation instead of renting a car or booking through an app. When you travel using the public transportation you don’t only get to save money, but you can experience what it feels like to be a local.
  1. Eat At Local Markets
    Do not eat at popular tourist spots because usually prices are higher there. Wander around the city that you are in and look for local markets or restaurants and try out the food there. You won’t just be eating on a budget, but you will also be eating like a local.
  2. Pack Your Snacks
    If you bring your own snacks in your trip, then you don’t have to buy food for every time that you get hungry. Save up your money for your large meals like breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
  1. Research On Places That Are Free
    No matter where you go, there are always things that can be done for free or places that are free. During your preparation for your trip search about places that you can go to for free like parks or national museums, this way you can learn about the culture of the place that you are visiting without splurging on a lot of money.
  1. Don’t Buy A Lot Of Souvenirs
    When buying souvenirs, look for items that are inexpensive and memorable to bring to your friends and family. As for yourself just choose one souvenir item that will represent your whole trip. Don’t buy every local item that you see and end up not using them once you get home and finish the trip.
