18 Sep The Best Guide For An Average Traveler Who Needs Money Saving Travel Tips

The economic downturn isn’t an end for those who love traveling. There are many beautiful places around the world awaiting us. The thing is how you can spend your hard-earned money for the best experience. Here are 11 essential tips on saving money to help you continue travel dream while making it much more affordable.

These are simple and best ways to save money while you travel that everyone can do. You won’t need to sacrifice too much convenient for money. Just keep them balanced and get most out of your spending.

 

  1. Eat Where the Locals Eat

The local people know where to have the best meal with reasonable price. Rather than eating in the touristy restaurant, follow them. Go to a restaurant for residents; you are less likely to be an overcharge. Street food is tasty, and you can have a big meal with much less money spent.

  1. Take Advantage of Your Birthday or Any Other Ceremony

As a way to impress customers, businesses offer vouchers and discounts as the gift for clients who buy their product/use their service on a special occasion such as birthday, wedding ceremony, etc. So there is nothing to lose by asking or mentioning about your special ceremony to people. Just remember to bring your ID to prove it.

  1. Travel off Season

Avoid peak season and choose to visit during low season. You can get a better price, and more chance to have discounts or an upgrade. Also, with fewer customers, you will be served better.

  1. Travel Deals

There are always good deals which can save you a lot of money. Be sure not to miss them. Flash deals with 30%, 50% off can reduce your spending considerably. Join local facebook group to update new deals and offer.

  1. Set Up An Automatic Travel Savings Account At Your Bank

Keep your money for the trip in a different account. Don’t leave all you have in one account. Make your budget for travel visible, and you can be sure not to spend too much. You won’t want to be back home with debt.





 

  1. Request Your Time Off From Work Starting In The Middle Of the Week

Airlines, tours or hotels give you a lower price for departure on a weekday. People use their weekend to travel make these days crowded and more expensive. So save you days off to save money.

  1. Travel with Group

More people join everyone pays less! This is a simple rule that applies to most goods and services. Get more friends to go with you and all can cut the costs. If you have can connect with other groups, take charter service into consideration. What better than a private tour and you even pay less for it.

  1. Early Bird Offer

Early booking gets a discount which is called early bird offer. This is a special rate for those who book early, typically 60 days before departure. The rate is usually 10 to 20% lower than list price.

If you are a risk-taker and have a flexible plan, looking for last minute deals. You can get awesome deals for last minute departures. www.lastminute.com offers many hotels and flight last minute deals.

  1. Make the Most of Public Transit

The Public vehicle is an excellent way to reduce your expenses. Travel to the destination by bus or train instead of a taxi or private car. Spend time to research the routes in advance and choose the type of public transport wisely.

  1. Book Package Tours

Some people like to arrange their trip themselves. Indeed, you might lower the payments on the voyage and take only what you need. However, consider a package tour sometime. For example, for a Hanoi to Halong Bay day tour (Vietnam), a package tour including all meals, transfer, entrance ticket gives you a better price than you book each service separately.

  1. Cook by Yourself

If you are on an extended trip (more than 2 weeks), don’t go to a restaurant every day. Hit the local market and cook yourself something nice. The money saved from eating can be spent for a longer stay or bus tickets to more places nearby.

Author Bio: I have been writing for websites for three years now. I love to travel currently working in Vietnam and enjoying Halong bay weather.

    These are all really great tips! I think most people don’t think about asking for time off starting in the middle of the week which could save you so much money in flights! My Mum recently booked her flights to Italy and flew in on Friday and back on Monday so they were expensive – in hindsight, we should have realized the dates fell on the weekend.

    These are really great tips! I think that the food ones are biggies. People don’t realize just how much money you can blow by eating at top tourist restaurants or having “western food” in Asia, things like that. Plus, when you eat where the locals eat it’s always delicious!

    I always like the idea of starting time off during the week but as I work and try to travel as much as possible, this is one tip that just doesn’t work for me. If I leave on a Friday I can return on a Sunday and have an extra two days! I would definitely use the other tips though

    I totally agree with eating what the locals eat and taking public transportation. A lot of people take cabs fearing that the public transportation will be difficult, but in most cases, it’s fairly easy and doesn’t take long to learn. I need to set up an Automatic Travel Savings account. That sounds like a really good idea!

    Yes!! These are great tips. I love to travel off season if possible and I LOVE travel deals. This year, I only booked travel deals and that decided where I was going! My best deals were $488 r/t to Athens (from NY) nd $220 r/t to Santiago, Chile (from Washington DC). Travel can be affordable if you’re careful and flexible!
