Consider a house
Renting individual rooms when you are multiple people travelling can be pricey. Why not consider renting a house to share instead? As a bonus you get more amenities including a kitchen to keep your local groceries or maybe even a private pool!
Travel in a group
Travelling in groups is not only fun and makes for a lifetime of good stories, but it can also make a big difference in your travel costs. Think about it: when it comes to paying bills they are split between the group. Additionally, check for group travel passes on public transportation, museum and attraction tickets as well as discount deals for booking multiple rooms or cars.
By walking everywhere you get exercise, discover hidden places that you would not see from the inside of a car and you can save tons of money! What’s not to love?
Travel at night
By travelling overnight you can save one night’s worth of a hotel stay. Sleep on the plane and start your holiday as soon as you arrive!
Get in touch with your friends
Consider travelling to locations where your friends live. This way you’ll get to reconnect, have a free local tour guide and maybe even a place to sleep! Don’t forget to show your appreciation by bringing them a gift from your departure country though as this goes a long way.
Go grocery shopping
If you are staying somewhere with a fridge – or even a mini fridge – go grocery shopping! You can save a lot of money on food this way, plus you get to taste some local delicacies at a fraction of the cost or even take them back to your home country. Don’t pay for overpriced hotel breakfasts, make your own and spend that money on experiences instead.
So your flight was cheap, that’s great! But beware of all the additional fees as they quickly add up and make your trip more expensive than it has to be. Why not travel light and save time and stress at the airport?
