A lot of us would love to travel but lack the funds to do so. We always wish we had enough money to travel abroad. What you don’t realize is that it is not something that is really out of your grasp. It’s just that you have never taken a good look at your options. There are plenty of ways in which you can travel abroad on a tight budget. The trick to doing so is cutting unnecessary costs out of the way. I mean you should decide what you want from traveling, do you value to seeing a lot of places more or do you value comfort more. You can’t really go after comfort if you are going to travel on a tight budget.
The first thing is how you get there. Don’t go for the expensive airlines. Look for a more budget airline to the country you are going to travel to. In addition don’t wait till the last minute to book your ticket. Get it over with well in advance and you might be able to get deal on your ticket. A lot of airlines offer such deals when they don’t have enough booked tickets during certain times of the year. Look out for these deals and book your ticket early. This is by far one of the biggest expenses that you will have to face.
Next is the place that you will be staying. What you must understand is that when we are traveling to another country we go there to see as much of the country as we can. We only need a bed to sleep at night. So don’t worry too much about the place that you will be staying. I mean pick at least a decent place but don’t go looking for comfortable places. With Airbnb you have a lot of new options available to you as well. You might have to make your own food but it is much cheaper than staying at a hotel. In addition you do find some great places for a decent price on Airbnb.
Then comes the getting about part, if you are traveling on a budget then tours are going to be a waste of money of for you. Use that money to travel more. Just go around on your own. You can use public transport to do this. This is the cheapest mode of travel. In most countries public transport is decent enough so don’t be too scared to go in them. Although in some countries you might have to be careful of your possessions while traveling. All in all traveling on a budget is simply all about planning properly and choosing only what you really need. If you do so you can travel a lot more than you think.
