Traveling can get pretty expensive really quickly. If you’re among the many who don’t have money just lying around in the bank, planning the best vacation can get overwhelming. There are so many things to consider and let’s admit it, prices aren’t cheap. 

Plus, there may be some unforeseeable expenses that might occur while you’re there. So, it’s important to try saving money - even if you have enough. 

You don’t need to stress over how this can be possibly done because we listed down a couple of money-saving tricks on how you can save up when traveling. 

Travel during the off-peak season – What’s better than exploring new places without having to share them with hundreds of more people? But of course, you have to be sure that you’re okay if some activities and places might not be open during that time.

Budget airlines and promos – In this day and age, airline promos and discounts are everywhere. You just have to be patient and determined to find and book them. Another great tip to travel on a budget, try researching for lesser-known airlines – safe ones, of course. We know it can get challenging but hang in there - it’ll be worth it!

Choose other accommodations – We know there’s nothing quite like staying at a 5-star hotel,. But if this isn't your priority, there are other alternative accommodations you can choose from like budget hotels, outdoor camping, couch surfing, etc.

Pack light and properly – Instead of paying extra to check-in for your luggage, use that money for something else during your trip.

Try local food instead of high-end restaurants – We’ve said this before, and we’ll say it again. There’s nothing better and easier in getting to know the place and its culture, than trying out the local cuisines; and no place is better to find them than local eateries, restaurants, and even on the street. But if you really want to be adventurous at the same time, try visiting the local market and get some of the best deals with produce and meat.

Embrace public transportation – There’s nothing like exploring a new place other than walking around or using public transportation. It may seem like hard work but this guarantees that you’ll familiarize yourself in no time. Also, it’s quite cheaper than booking an Uber or taxi all the time or renting out a car.

Book activities ahead of time - One of the benefits of booking in advance is getting cheaper rates or even finding deals online. Not much is different when it comes to booking activities during your travel. By doing this, you get to find out if they have off-season rates or even days when they’re open for free. The latter is usually available for museums, galleries, etc.
