Here are my 5 top tips for travelling on a budget
Get travel insurance
Travel Insurance covers risks during travel such as loss of passport and personal belonging cover, loss of checked in baggage etc. Having these risks covered ensures an additional layer of protection against financial loss.
Book in advance
Often prices will go up as time gets closer to your trip. Booking train journeys, hostels and of course air travel ahead of time guarantees you won’t get stuck having to spring for a flashier room or a last-minute price gouged flight.
Book using a private browsing window
Always make sure you clear your browser cookies, and even use a private/incognito window while searching for flights. Websites have a tricky way of tracking what prices you’ve been quoted in the past, so in order to make things competitive and cheap, make sure you’re browsing on the hush!
Search for free things to do in your chosen destination.
A great top tip for travelling on a budget is to look for free things to do wherever you’re heading. It could be that certain museums are free on certain days or that there are local events on. Don’t forget the classic ‘free walking tour’, a great way of seeing the city you are visiting. Just remember that it’s customary to tip at the end.
Bring food with you
Stuff your pockets for the road! Bring food from home, shop at grocery stores instead of restaurants etc. It might not be as glamorous as dining at fancy cafes and eateries, but financially it’s a live-saver.
Happy and safe travels.
