If you’re trying to not spend too much on traveling, here are some tips on how to keep you from breaking the bank on your next trip.
The best thing about traveling is to enjoy the local markets and food stalls whenever you visit a holiday destination instead of going to fancy restaurants. There’s also a possibility that if you go where the locals go to have lunch, dinner etc. You’ll get a better taste and authenticity of the food from that particular country and it wouldn’t burn a hole in your pocket too. So, hit up some local food markets and nom nom away!
Sometimes when you’re traveling, especially in a big group or if you have a big family, it’s always best to rent a whole place/home instead of opting for a posh resort because then you’ll save even more and you don’t have to pay for the services, which you’re not using. Plus, we’re always out and about so it’s better to get an affordable place to stay which gives you easy access to eateries and transportation.
Transportation is very important when you’re traveling; choose an accommodation, which is near to a bus station or even a taxi stand in order to get around easily. Before heading to a destination, find out if it’s suitable to walk around, get a bus; hire a driver or rent-a-car to get around so you can plan ahead on how go around the city.
Last but not least, bring extra cash instead of going to the bank/ATM to withdraw money because your bank might charge you an amount of fee for overseas withdrawal. Check for hidden charges or fees in certain services/things that you plan to buy.
