Traveling on a Budget

Everyone deserves to get away from it all every once in a while. When you’ve finally decided to give yourself that much needed R and R, money should not prevent you from doing so. Here are some savvy saving tips for you so you can get the most of your vacation on such limited budget.

  1. Book in Advance

We all know that airfares are generally cheaper when you book months or even a year in advance. Why not do so? Not only will you get cheaper prices, you can also have enough time to save up more for that vacation of yours. Also, watch out for any airfare promos the airlines may be having. This can help you save a considerable sum that you can be able to spend on other stuff for your upcoming trip.

  1. Travel Light

Avoid excess baggage as soon as possible. Unnecessary weight only make you shell out more money than you intend to. Also, given that you will be traveling, you might be able to buy several items during your trip or along the way. Packing light gives you the advantage to save up and stash your bought items in your bag.

  1. Plan Your Meals

You should be able to do your research on where the best and cheapest places are there to eat. If you stay in a hotel, most of them offer a free breakfast buffet. You can instead wake up later than usual and have brunch. Now you’re solved for the two meals of the day – breakfast and lunch. Ask the locals for economical restaurants or café- they are sure to help you out. Or, if it’s allowed, you can even just cook for yourself where you’re staying. It’s fun and economical.

  1. Go Commute

Instead of taking the taxi, or renting a car, walk the streets of the foreign place instead. You can get to experience the culture and the things unique to that place or country while you’re at it. Plus, you can get to learn about local food and traditions while you do. If walking isn’t feasible, then simply take the vehicle the way masses do. Either by train, or by bus, they’re sure to fit your budget nicely.
