How To Save Money When You Travel

There is no getting away from it, travelling is an expensive business. From flights and trains to eating and drinking out, the costs of travelling add up over time.

Cook Your Own Food

This is the best way to save money as far as I’m concerned. Eating out is an expensive business. This does depend on where you go, but generally speaking, if you’re eating out in most cities it’s going to cost a lot.

Travel In A Group

I do most of my travelling alone. This is something I enjoy due to the freedom it gives me to explore places. However, there are a few downsides to this approach. One of them is loneliness, and the other is that you burden all of the costs.

Choose What You Want To Do

Visiting new places can be an expensive business. If you’re visiting a new city, for example, there will be a lot of places where you will have to pay to get in.

Buy A Water Bottle

This may seem like a weird inclusion, but it has its merits. Water is something that you will need to drink regardless of where you go. If you don’t bring a water bottle with you, you will be left with no choice but to buy bottled water.
