Budget Traveling

| May 31, 2012

Budget Traveling – Everyone must be looking forward to save while enjoying their travel, especially in a rough economic time such as the one we are currently in. Many people have stopped taking vacations regularly, and others have stopped traveling completely. But travel doesn’t have to be expensive. Here are some tips on how you can save while traveling.

1. Fly from smaller airports

If it’s at all possible, try flying out of smaller airports. Though it may take longer, flights from small airports are almost always cheaper than those from major airports. Plus, there are usually much fewer people, so security goes quickly.

2. Exchange currency beforehand

Whether the location you’re going to accepts your own currency or not, it’s a good idea to have the local currency on you at all times, and to exchange for it before you even leave home. This way you get the best exchange rates, and you’ll always be able to purchase things when you need them.

3. Stay at low-star hotels

Though generally you’d want to spring for a nice hotel room, there’s really no point if you plan to be out and about all day. If you travel to somewhere interesting, you shouldn’t have trouble keeping yourself occupied and out of the hotel room all day, so really all you will be doing in your room is sleeping. So cut some costs and go for a 2 or 3-star hotel instead of a 4 or 5-star.

4. Carry snacks/drinks

Especially in areas with large levels of tourism, snacks and drinks are marked up ridiculously high. Being out and about all day will probably make you hungry and thirsty, which is why you should carry some small snacks and/or drinks so that you won’t have to pay too much money. You can re-stock later at a local grocery or convenience store and still save a fair amount of money.
