Being a frequent traveler one of the most difficult things I have faced is managing my travel budget. No matter how much you consider things and pre plan you end up spending more than your estimated budget. So to overcome these money issues I discovered these eight money saving tips that can help you a lot in planning overseas trip.
Food, Food And Food
According to what I have observed dinners are the most expensive meal of the day, because it’s the last meal of the day before you go to bed its normally costly. So I recommend that you have your main meal in lunch time as you get a lot of food options for less money. For dinners you can go for some street food or light snack.
When it comes to accommodation for me staying at an apartment is best in terms of money and comfort. Additionally you also get kitchen facility so you can also cook your own food which will help in cutting food costs.
When you are traveling through a single airline you are bound to collect miles for getting a free ticket or upgrade, if you are running low on miles then you can also buy miles from websites that sell air miles.
Make Use Of Free Wi-Fi
Trust me if you are not carrying a local SIM card don’t make the mistake of turning on your data roaming or you will end up burning your money in just uploading a status of selfie. Instead check with your hotel if they have a free Wi-Fi or go to a coffee shop and enjoy their Wi-Fi.
Tropical Destinations Are Expensive
If you are visiting a tropical destination one thing is for sure you will get the best accommodation facilities but the food and drink prices will be high.
Travel Insurance Policy
If you are buying travel insurance policy every time you travel, you are definitely doing it the wrong way. The best way to get a travel insurance policy is by getting it for the whole year even if you are traveling only twice a year.
Make Your Own Meal
If you are staying at a hotel and their food service is pretty expensive, then here is a cool hack go to the local grocery store buy some supplies and head to the nearest picnic point or park and use the iron grills fixed there to do your own cooking and enjoy an open air meal.
Drink Normal Water
Keep a water bottle with you and drink tap water, it’s mostly safe in foreign countries, mineral water comes with a price and if you keep on buying it you will just add a few dollars to your bill.
