Travelling can be a really amazing experience. From the moment you start exploring the options your destination offers, to the moment you are back home with your luggage filled with souvenirs, travelling can teach you so much – and not only about different cultures, languages and cuisines, but also about yourself.
Unfortunately, many people feel they are not travelling enough – and one of the main issues that prevents them from doing this is their financial status. However, that shouldn’t be an impediment – especially since you can actually travel decently and safely without breaking the bank.
How do you save serious money on your next holiday? We have some ideas for you – so read on if you need some “frugal” inspiration:
Don’t eat out
Of course, there may be dishes you will want to try (after all, this is one of the best parts about infusing yourself in another culture). However, eating out three times a day, even for a week, and even in a low-priced area can really put off your budget and cause you financial issues.
We highly suggest that you eat at home or in your hotel room as much as possible. Supermarkets offer a wide range of foods wherever in the world you may be, and they can really help you save a lot of money.
Stay off the beaten track
The more touristic an area is, the more expensive the restaurants and hotels there will be – this is a universally-valid rule you will most likely observe in most of the countries you visit. If you want to save money, try to book your accommodation farther from the downtown area and farther from the most popular touristic attractions. It will make all the difference in the world!
Get an AirBNB
Want to be able to cook and clean on your own? Want to live in a nice-looking apartment for the duration of your holiday? Want to avoid hefty hotel apartment prices? Air BNB can be a truly amazing solution for those who want to travel low-cost without leaving behind their comfort. There are many decent Air BNB offers in most of the parts of the world – and, as long as you check with other travelers’ reviews, it is more than likely that you will have a pleasant experience with this service.
