Some Tips For Travelers Who Are Broke
Almost all of us are daydreaming to be on the pictures of adventures and amazing place we see on pictures posted in Instagram and other social media sites. 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? You might have several excuses for not having any escapade, but if you will just plan and just change a bit of your usual travel plans, you can still have that memorable adventure you ever dream of. You will be able to read more in this article some practical ways that you can still enjoy your trips without having to spend a lot of money.
Firstly, select affordable places, and do not so picky. 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. Be ready to be flexible when you want to spend less on your travel, in terms of the place and the time and dates of the trip offered by the travel companies, which also usually offer travel promos. 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 hand, one disadvantage of traveling on off-season is that you might have to sacrifice yourself under the scorching heat of the sun or rainy seasons, but still you can enjoy the place, even under the wrong weather or season.
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. When you spend a lot of time in a place rather than traveling faster, you will not have to spend more for the faster options, like booking another tickets which usually are not discounted on that moment.
Another tip to remember is to travel light. Carry along only the essential things. You don’t need to bring everything. Just use a carry-on backpack for your things to avoid having excess baggage. Excess baggage means you need to spend another amount, on a very unreasonable price on the actual.
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.
Lastly, plan everything ahead. Decide or plan ahead before the travel, up to the details and the other possibilities, to avoid choosing the wrong option.
