Some Tips For Travelers Who Are Broke
Absolutely, all of us are desiring to travel the whole world and to reach places which we usually see on pictures posted on Instagram and Facebook. But one of the reasons why we can’t have it all at once is that of the list of expenses that might cost the whole trip. Generally speaking, when one wants to travel, it is already expected that he will be spending for that trip. But is it really possible to travel more with less expenses? If you could just simplify a bit of your desired fancy travels, you could still be able to enjoy the same fondness you want to experience in your dream land. Now, we will learn more about how we can enjoy much but still spend a little.
First tip is to choose cheap destinations and never be choosy. Believe it or not, there are several places you can choose from to love with such as Vietnam, Thailand, Nepal, India and even Latin America. When you are looking for cheaper flights it also means that you are willing to be flexible about where and when you go, which you can usually find on some travel discounts. But if you really want to go to your best destinations from your bucket list, you could still visit them on off-season since this time there will be fewer crowds, and surely their hostels would offer better deals and promos. On the other flip, you would probably be welcoming the heat of the sun or the rainy season on your destination if you go there during off-season, but what is important is that you have marked one item in your bucket list.
Another advice I can give you is to travel slow. The moment you travel slower, the cheaper expenses you would expect to spend. Indeed, time requires money. But when you travel quickly and you want to immediately arrive on your next destination faster, it requires you another spending for your ticket booking which are usually not anymore discounted.
Furthermore, you must travel light. Carry along only the essential things. You don’t need to bring everything. A regular-sized backpack is just enough to avoid excess baggage. When you have excess baggage, you need to pay the excess on a great value.
If the place you will be staying for an afternoon or night will allow you to use your own tent and mattresses, instead of availing their own accommodation, just feel free to use them.
Finally, plan everything ahead, as early as possible. Avoid deciding when you are already on your destination because you might end up choosing the poorest option, which is the most expensive option.
