7 Budget-Friendly Travel Tips for Everyone

September 7th, 2013 by admin


I haven't posted in a while and decided I need to update this site. So heres some helpful advice for those who are looking for general travel tips for saving money.

Going on a trip doesn’t have to cost you tons of money. You can have a wonderful vacation without breaking the bank. Before making all the necessary preparations, make sure to ask some friends around, call your travel agent or search the Internet. This will help you learn about the destinations that most appeal to you. Once you’ve finally decided where to go, here are useful tips to help get travel for so much less:

1. Travel during off-season.

Spring and fall are usually excellent times to travel on a budget. Not only will you be able to save money on airfare and lodging, you can also enjoy sightseeing while avoiding the crowds.

2. Fly on non-peak days of the week. Book TUESDAYS!

Just as you should travel off-season, you should also travel at the less busy time of the week. Keep in mind that booking your flight for less popular days of the week can usually save you money. Avoid flying on Fridays and Sundays, as these are the most expensive days. Instead, opt for Wednesdays or Saturdays.

3. Choose cost-effective destinations.

Most people, when they travel, only look at the cost of the airfare. Little do they know that it’s the daily expenses like food and lodging that actually weigh their budgets down. Instead of booking a cheap flight to popular destinations like Cancun and the Caribbean where hotel rooms cost a fortune, consider booking more expensive airfare to a destination where your money can go further. Countries like Peru, Costa Rica, Morocco, Thailand and Vietnam have really low cost of living, so food is cheap and so is the beer!

4. Always use coupon codes when you book online.

Have you ever noticed those promotional code boxes when paying for online travel purchases? If you’ve ever come across them, don’t be afraid to click on them. These coupon codes can help you save big on travel, hotels, flights, rental cars (Lyft promo codes) and more. There are currently 40% off when you book at hotels.com coupon codes @ Fabudaily.

5. Check out deal sites.

The Internet is a great resource for websites that provide great deals on travel. Lifestyle sites like LivingSocial.com and Fabudaily.com provide its members with getaway deals that can help you save up to 70% off your trip. There are also member websites out there like ... that allow its members to save up to 60% on fashionable gear.

6. Don’t be afraid to try alternative lodging.

When searching for a place to rest your head, don’t limit yourself to hotels. Instead, book yourself a bed at a hostel and make new friends. If you're more adventurous than that, check out CouchSurfing.com. It’s basically a growing online community whose members provide a free couch in their home for use by solo travelers from around the world.

7. Buy souvenirs at grocery stores.

Tourist shops are usually overpriced, so avoid them at all cost. Local specialty foods always make for thoughtful gifts for family and friends at home, so grocery stores are usually your best budget bet. Don’t forget to ask the store cashier for her favorite local products, so you don’t end up with random goods no one really likes!

Travel to India Taj Mahal

If you travel to India to see the Taj Mahal in Agra, you should be prepared for crowds of tourists no matter the time of day or night. At night guards herd groups of tourists through the gates leading to the famous monument, and bright lights glare down on you as you walk toward a stone platform overlooking the grounds and peer out across the gardens toward the great building.

Once the tour groups reach this point, though, the guards will kill the lights in a carefully orchestrated show, and the moonlight will reveal the ephemeral glow of the pearly shrine. In the distance you can hear the thumping of modern music and see the city lights, but inside the gates, the Taj Mahal will appear serene and bathed in silence, evoking another time.

If it is your first time, Hotels.com makes it easy to save. Just apply any of the popular hotels.com coupon codes, discount codes or many rebate opportunities for cash back when flying to India.
