Travel Guide: How to Plan A Low Budget Trip

We’re talking here to real travelers! Those who are traveling to explore not to live luxuriously and therefore are looking for ways to help them stay within their allocated budget, they’re the solo travelers who are seeking to enjoy the destination not their stay.

So for those of you who relate, here are a few tips and tricks to help you travel on a low budget.

Travel out of season

Google the best time to visit your desired destination then travel just before or after the dates given, this technique is called the ‘shoulder season’ where you get to enjoy the country but not the weather.

But who cares when the hotel and airlines prices will be so much lower than the usual? Trust us, you’ll still enjoy the country just as much.

Pack properly

One thing I personally make sure to do is pack properly because trust me, shopping expenses take up from your budget and you will find yourself inside the supermarket buying loads of stuff you clearly don’t need. So bring everything you need and always take with you a warm hoodie and a waterproof jacket, because anywhere you go, unpredictable weather incidents may occur, so why risk shopping for a new jacket?

Book flights in advance

Prices of flight tickets get higher in time as you approach your travel date, so make sure to always book your flight ahead if you already have everything sorted out.

Public Transport is your new travel buddy

Don’t even consider Uber or cabs when you’re traveling abroad, especially if the country you’re traveling to has a subway that covers most areas. Always choose public transportation, buses, metro or trains to get you around. If you’re scared to get lost, you can always ask around or use Google Maps.

Don’t eat away your budget! 

I know that dining in expensive restaurants seems quite appealing but getting broke on your second day is way scarier, so choose cheap lunches that you can buy from a supermarket, or give street food a try. But of course try the country’s main local dish as this is part of your travel experience.

One thing I always do because I get hungry A LOT is pack a few things from home, including canned food, pastas and of course some munchies.

Choose your accommodation wisely

Trust us, you won’t be spending much time in your hotel room because instead you will be out there exploring the world. So basically all you need is a safe place to leave your stuff behind and somewhere that is clean too.

You can trade expensive hotel rooms for dorm rooms in hostels, also a great way to meet people if you’re traveling solo! If you’re traveling with a group, then rent a place on AirBnb, you will find great spaces at low prices when divided on all of you, a studio will even suffice! Couchsurfing is another website you can give a look.

General tips!

  • Go where you know people. This will not only save you the accommodation fees but will also help you get around easily as they will show you around.
  • Ask the locals on some of the best deals on food, accommodations, and other necessities can only be discovered through word-of-mouth on the ground.
  • Gather all the information you need on the country before traveling, you can ask on Facebook groups for advises and personal experiences.
  • Avoid gift shops and shopping in general.
