4 Hacks to Travel on a Budget
You don’t have to own all the money to be a traveler. Yes, some of it is appreciated, but you don’t have to be a billionaire to travel all the destinations in your bucket list. With few hacks, you can easily travel around different places on a budget. Here we have mentioned such 4 hacks that will help you to travel on a budget:
Be open with accommodation options
One thing that takes most of the travel expense is the accommodation. It almost constitutes a major part of your entire travel budget. There are so many ways in which you can save up on your accommodation. For instance, you can share the room with strangers in a decent hostel which is way more affordable than hotels and lodges. This option is only suitable when you are staying at some place for a few days and also if you are easy with sharing a place with complete strangers. But if you’re staying at some place for a month or two, we advise you to book a single bedroom apartment with a decent kitchen. You can travel all day long and cook your meal yourself too. This way you can save up a lot not only on accommodation but on food as well.
When in Rome, do as Romans do
When you are traveling to a place, it’s better to adapt yourself like the place for as long as you are staying there. So instead of hiring taxis or cars on rent, it’s better to travel using local transportation. Just ensure that you have done your research about how to get around all the places with the aid of local transportation. Also try walking down the places, if they are few blocks away.
Try the local street food instead of fancy restaurants and your go-to food joints
Yes, you can find a pizza corner or McDonald's in possibly every country. But the question is, is that what you traveled for, so far? You’re traveling all this far to hog over the same McDonalds burger or French fries, instead, why not try some of the exotic local food. You can easily try the local cuisine in street food joints. These joints are your place to grab some of the finest of the native cuisine at affordable prices. You can get to know a lot about the culture with their cuisine too.
Photos are memorable “KEEPSAKES” as well
The first thing that you can try is to avoid buying something or other from every place you traveled as a souvenir. Instead of spending money on it, you can plan to visit something more or extend a day or two of your trip. For memories and keepsake, you can get some amazing pictures of the place and obviously of you. These photos are much more meaningful and years back when you will see them, you can time travel all these places in your mind. The good thing is that you don’t have to spend on expensive cameras to capture these memories; today’s smartphones are enough to click these amazing pictures.
Another destination... another journey awaits; don’t let budget curb this new experience of your life.
