During a conversation with friends, one lady said she does not travel because it's too expensive and exclusive. Travel doesn't have to be expensive. Budget travel is all about finding innovative ways to save money while exploring the world.
- Opt for hostels, guesthouses, or budget hotels to save on lodging.
- Consider platforms like Airbnb for affordable stays, or try Couchsurfing for a free option.
Economical Eats and Activities
- Enjoy street food for a taste of local cuisine without the hefty price tag.
- Visit free attractions and museums, or enjoy nature at parks and beaches at no cost. In some countries, the museums and some attractions are free for at least one day per month.
Budget Travel Tips
- Travel off-season for lower prices and fewer crowds. I wrote a longer article on that topic here.
- This is how I tend to explore new places: use public 🚎 transportation instead of taxis to save money and experience the city like a local. Better yet, get your steps in. Walk!
