Updates: Cheap Travel TipsTilug
Travelling is a magical experience and it is even better when you can save money while you are doing it. Below are some cheap travel tips that will save you money while still having the time of your life.
Travelling Off Peak
This is one of the biggest ways to save. By not travelling when it is holiday times, you can save huge amounts of money on flights and accommodation. Check out websites such as skyscanner which has up to the minute fares but also lets you look at when is the best time to travel.
There are so many options for accommodation now that you can find somewhere to stay at extremely low cost-if not free.
As well as traditional lodgings, look at airb&b where you can find accommodation in a private residence at very reasonable prices in almost any city in the world. Couchsurfing is the ultimate cost saver. You can find somebody in the area where you are going who is willing to let you stay at their home for free. These options are a great way of making new friends and seeing your destination as a local.
Eat and Drink Like A Local
Find out where the locals go to eat and drink and you will not only save money but you could also end up making lifelong friends. You will get to taste and experience the local delights that you may not find if you are dining in the tourist areas.
Find Free Attractions
Be sure to find out what free attractions there are at your destination. Museums, art galleries and parks usually don’t cost anything. Ask at your accommodation if they know of any free events that are happening while you are there. Everything from festivals to movies and music in the park can be found just by asking.
No matter where you are going, a little bit of research beforehand can go a long way towards making this the best trip ever.
