  • Tips for Travelling Cheap

    The economic recession spread across the world caused some changes in the tourism industry and made the travelers savvier and more temperate when it comes to travelling expenses. And since many of the travelers are not willing to pay a bundle for a vacation in a seaside resort or for a tour, travel agencies and flying companies are continuously launching all sorts of deals to draw their clients. However, apart from catching a deal, there are some tricks and tips that you could take into account in these tight- belting times in order to have a great time when vacationing and in the same time not to exhaust your financial resources. In a nutshell, here are some useful tips for travelling cheap.

    Get the Best Price

    Since an eye glued to the Internet can bring you certain benefits, visit a site featuring a price comparison engine like Travelgrove and get your plane tickets, rent a car or book a hotel room cheaper. With such a website with just a few clicks you can find the best deal and choose some budget-friendly variants.

    Choose a Recession-proof Destination

    Top-notch holiday destinations that have gained popularity among the travelers are in most of the cases expensive options where you cannot enjoy your free time without breaking the bank. However, recently, travelling in some countries like Iceland, Canada or South Korea has become affordable even for the pockets of an average tourist. Just search for a bargain, grab it and spend trouble-free and fun days!

    Free Touristy Objectives

    Still, if you want by all means to travel in one of the bustling European capitals, there are some touristic objectives where you are not required to pay an entry. More precisely, while it is free to visit the Louvre museum in Paris on the first Sunday of the month, you don’t need to buy an entrance ticket on the last Sunday each month in order to venture inside the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel. A visit to the following European trademarks is also free of charge: St. Peter’s Basilica, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Pantheon, Notre Dame, the Tate Museum and the National Gallery in London. So there you have the proof that you don’t have to use up all your money to visit Europe’s gems.

    Public Transportation

    Once you arrived at your destination, you can always cut the costs either by travelling with the public transportation or by hiring a bike. While cycling it’s both healthy and fun, your access to the heart of some cities might be restricted.

    Use Cash

    Taking into account many credit cards charge you with a fee when paying abroad, choose to purchase your food or your drinks with cash. However, we recommend you not to carry along a mint of money because you might end up losing your handbag and with it, the money for all your vacation.

    All in all, you don’t have to take some drastic measures in order to travel cheap. Just put into practice these tips for a cost-effective holiday. Nevertheless, remember to have fun and do not give up on the things you would like to do or see just because they are a tad salted. After all, the purpose of your trip is to relax and spend wonderful days, not to countdown prices!

    This is a nice list of tips, I don’t often see a “recession-proof destination” advice for the travelers. :) Nice idea if you’re going for a thrifty vacation, but I think the cost of going to one place differs from country to country, and also from what place you live in. Some currencies have a high exchange rates, so people with those currencies I think won’t have much problem deciding on where to go spend their holidays. Nevertheless, preparing early and saving up is always the best method for you to reach the destination you’ve always wanted to check out.
