Sure that you love to travel and do it whenever you can, but on many occasions, the budget stands between our journey of dreams and reality. Today we bring you few tips which will help you plan your vacation by spending the least money possible.
How much will it cost to go around the world?
1 – Choose the flights
Do not always look for the cheapest flight, if not the best connection. Avoid flights that leave early morning, the little money that you save what you spend in transportation to the airport, in addition to discomfort.
2 – expand your search
Opens the search of your destination, your city won’t always get direct flights and affordable with all the places you want to visit. If you want to go to Edinburgh, for example, a good way to save money is to fly to Prestwick (an airport with many offers).
From Prestwick you can go to Glasgow, a beautiful city to visit and from there to Edinburgh. You multiply your trip and, being cities very well communicated, you keep it in the budget.
3 – Travel light
Check suitcases implies a cost on your plane ticket and a chance to lose your luggage.
4 – Accommodation
The accommodation options are endless, from the more traditional, the hotel, to the more recent such as CouchSurfing, a form of housing collaborative, which offers a “couch” to travelers to spend the night. Don’t settle with the first price and keep looking.
Another of the most common options is taking advantage of the trip to sleep. A night train will work out cheaper than one of the high-speed and you’ll be able to sleep in the wagon. Transport and accommodation, two-in-one.
5 – Using search engines local
Do not let the search for accommodation, flights and activities on the portals own the country or the city that you visit. On many occasions, the major portals such as Booking, ignored the small businesses do not have accounts as powerful as they are with the multinationals.
6 – be flexible with the dates
If you have a week of vacation, look at the flights and dates more economic before you close it. It may be that the following week or the previous one has a special event that does not interest you in the city you’ll be visiting and all of this more expensive as a result.
7 – Activities at the destination
Many destinations are perfect for trying new experiences. Surfing, bungee jumping or water activities are the main attraction of many trips. In these cases, don’t be satisfied never with the first price. Compare and if you leave, haggle a little.
8 – Visit the museums without paying
Almost all the museums of the world have days of visit free. Plan your trip around these days to save the entry and to be able to buy something in the gift shop.
9 – Leave the car at home
Unless you are going to do a roadtrip in the city, forget about renting a car. Use the public transport, bicibletas or walk. The best way to get to know a city is walking its streets.
10 – Search for jobs
In a matter of transportation, there are many offers for tourists. When you arrive at your destination, get close to a tourist office to inform you about the possible deals and discounts.
