How to save money while traveling

by Pradeep S. Digital Marketing Strategist
Do you plan on going on long-term travel? Are you on a budget but still want to make the best out of your trip? First, it is essential to remember that a long-term trip is different from a weekend break or a short trip. When on a short trip, you sleep for a few hours and try all drinks and foods. You even choose a special accommodation type like Anndion Lodge to stay. But more extended travel may demand less spending, thus wearing off the novelty of excess. So, as you try to stick to a manageable budget, here are ways you can save money while traveling.

Eat out less
Eating in restaurants may be convenient and everything. But it would help if you stopped eating out and instead cooked for yourself. Traveling longer than four or five-day getaways and eating in restaurants adds up very fast. Remember there is tax, tips to give, a good-looking drink, and some dessert. But cooking using the fun local ingredients from supermarkets and open markets significantly reduces expenditure.

Try traveling during the off-season
The high season is a real thing for travelers as it is the most demanding season. High seasons include Christmas New Year, during summer and spring breaks. Some hotels hike their accommodation fees and food prices during these seasons, making your stay more expensive. So, the recommendation is to avoid these times, and you will notice different hotels attracting you with their discount prices and consequently lowering flight prices. So, research and determine the high seasons of your destination country beforehand.

Stay in a hostel
The most common notion is that hostels are always cheap. But not all hostels are cheap. So, why should you stay in a hostel? Unlike self-contained hotel rooms and Airbnbs, hostels are affordable and offer a memorable experience. Staying in a hostel will allow you to meet and connect with different people, access helpful staff and participate in group outings. Generally, a hostel will be good for your budget, and you can travel for months staying in a private hostel, costing as low as $40 per night. It can even get to as low as $15 in other countries.

Open a bank account that is travel-friendly
While abroad, you want a bank account that will offer you the convenience of unlimited ATM withdrawals. Better still, the bank should not charge you any processing and transaction fees.

Avoid renting a vehicle
Before visiting a new place, try to understand its public transportation. Then, upon reaching your destination, get straight to it before something convinces you to rent a car. When traveling abroad, you should only hire a vehicle when you need one.

In conclusion, you will also save lots of money by drinking responsibly. This includes avoiding drinking at the bar because bar drinking has higher chances of irresponsible drinking. If you train yourself to follow the above tips, there is no doubt that your extended travel will see more unused money in your pockets.
