Have you ever desired to travel to one of your favorite destination but you just couldn’t because of travel expenses?
Most of the people think that travelling can come up really hard in their pocket and you can just cannot ignore them. If you’re one of those, brace yourself because by implementing these tried and tested methods on how to save money while travelling you can save more than half of your money on road.
Travelling is one of those methods which truly rejuvenate your soul, body and mind. Everyone loves it and would love to travel the globe alone or someone special.
It gives you a sense of freedom which you can get from very few things, and people who enjoy it are addicted to it.
But many times when it comes to travelling people give it a second thought because we have a perception that travelling is one expensive habit and only a few people can afford it.
To the matter of fact, it is right to a certain extent but you almost half your expense while traveling just by following some simple and basic steps
1 Do Couch surfing or stay in a hostel
Couchsurfing or hostel are few of the best methods of saving money while travelling and if you use trump card properly you can save almost half of your expenditure.
In Couchsurfing, you find any local host in the city where you’re travelling who are ready to accept you willingly. Generally, people don’t charge you for that but some may.
And Hostels are places which offer you an accommodation along with other travellers and very minimal amount of money.
I would recommend if you’re staying at any such places, it’s always better to do your research.
2 Avoid futile expenses.
Many a time what happens is when you travel you find lot things which are not required but you get so much drenched up in the essence of that area that you end up buying it even if they are common ex T-Shirts, Jeans
you can avoid such futile expense and can rather spend half of that money on some local souvenir. By this, you not only take a great piece of memory back to your home, but you also support local industry by that and helps them to flourish.
3 Use local Transport to commune.
You should always try to use local way of transportation like bus, metro, carpooling while travelling. By doing this you not only save money which you can use later on,
but you find a totally new dimension of the destination which you probably couldn’t have known while enjoying the A.C of your expensive cab.
By this, you actually interact which I personally fell is really important while on Road.
4 Try to cook your own meal
If you have Kitchen where you’re staying you should always use it to the fullest. Just get outside and get what you want to have for dinner and cook the mean.
Remember using the resources available is really a smart method you can apply to not bother your pocket unless you’re filthy rich. Which you’re not if you’re reading this article..!!!. SO BE WISE AND USE MY ADVISE.
5 Avoid fancy restaurants.
A fancy restaurant is something which you will find in any tourist spots and there is no doubt that they are really good in there domain and have really delicious food. But sometimes it’s better to avoid them if you’re travelling alone and try to eat in some local spot.
You know what secrets they are beholding behind those gates.
6 Pack essentially
I believe that packing your bag one of those things which people often underestimate but they are equally vital. You should always keep important things in your bag depends on where you’re going
Ex if you’re going in some mediterranean beach you always alwasy carry more Shorts rather than a Shirt
7 Talk with local people.
You should try to involve local people when it comes to the conversation because their vast knowledge may help you to find some really cool place which you may not find on the internet and remember.
