The majority of the population believes that traveling is for rich people, or that you have to save for awhile in order to have a decent traveling experience, but we’re here to tell you that’s simply not true!
We’ve put together some of our best advice for anyone looking to travel on a budget, so read on, and enjoy the tips.
Our first tip is to travel during off-seasons. This means visiting locations when other people will not be. You’d be amazed how much the prices of hotels differ during peak tourist season.
You can often save yourself up to 75% on accommodations by simply following this tip.
If you’re really on a tight budget, you might want to consider hostels instead of hotels. Depending on the country, some hostels are just as safe and even more personable than hotels. Plus you get the added bonus of interacting with locals, and experiencing the different culture for yourself.
Our next tip might seem to be common sense, but it will definitely save you money.
Don’t waste money on material things, settle for great experiences instead. Material things will only last for a few years, but memories will last for a lifetime and are free.
Our final tip is to only bring your necessities. Hauling around a couple extra bags can get costly and be a hassle. Airfare is more expensive, and some ride sharing companies will charge more for extra luggage.
