Traveling can be a lot of fun and quite expensive too. For all those travel lovers who have been holding back simply because of the cost factor, this is a dreamguides article that can give you tips on how to travel on a low budget:
Do a good research about the places you are interested in. Many places have an off season when the costs are much lesser. You can go to these must-see places during an off season. Not only will you be spending lesser money but you can get your money’s worth as there will be a lesser crowd. When you have few tourists around, you get to see and enjoy the places better. You can even click nice photos without waiting for the right spot to get free.
Many places offer packaged tours and services. Enquire about them on their websites or give them a call. It is safer to book such packages from your hometown as you will be communicating with the travel agent in your city. However, if you go to the destination and book with a local tour guide or an agency, it will work out much cheaper. The only road block could be communication if you are going to a foreign language speaking country.
Also, get quotations from more than one agency, so that you can have a comparison and choose the best option.
Backpacking can be fun and very pocket-friendly. It is a whole new experience for those who are used to planned travel. When you go backpacking, you get to live the life local live, experience their lifestyle and stay in places close by. You will be walking into a shared accommodation, hostels or a bread and breakfast type of establishments. It can be a great learning experience too.
