2 Avoid the most touristy places

Tourist places are characterized by their high prices when looking for restaurants, shops and entertainment. Instead, check out local shops and restaurants. This way the food will be much cheaper and better.

3 Travel out of season

During peak seasons like summer, prices will rise on all aspects of travel, air, accommodation, entertainment, etc. The best way to travel cheap is to travel out of season. Tickets and accommodation will be cheaper and there will be fewer waiting lines or overcrowding.

4 Fly during the week

When choosing airline tickets, try to look for flights during the week rather than on the weekend. This way your ticket will be much cheaper since most people want to fly during the weekend, which makes prices higher.

5 Prepare before arriving so as not to waste time

Before your trip begins, prepare yourself. This includes choosing your destination well, bringing only the right clothes, familiarizing yourself with the language, customs and transportation.

All this will save you time, flight modifications and mistakes that could cost you money due to ignorance, so don't forget this step.


6 Get local recommendations

Being new to a place, it can be difficult to find the best shops or restaurants, so ask locals for recommendations as they are the specialists and read reviews before you go. You can be surprised by the most beautiful and delicious places.

7 Shop at local markets

Depending on the destination, try to shop at local markets. These markets usually provide cheaper products in terms of clothing and food. And a big advantage of these markets is experiencing the destination's culture firsthand.


8 Take local transportation

When traveling on a budget, a taxi is not always the best option. Instead, take local transportation. Look for possible combinations before making the trip to have everything organized. Not only is it cheaper, but it will also show you more of the travel destination than a taxi.

9 Look for free attractions

When traveling, people tend to go to tourist places where you have to pay a fee. However, people forget about the beautiful free attractions they can visit. If you're traveling cheap, forget about expensive attractions and look for free local beauty.

10 Look for an apartment with a kitchen instead of a hotel

Traveling on a low budget can be difficult. If you find an apartment that has a kitchen, you can always prepare something to eat instead of having to go to restaurants every day. On this occasion it is always better to look for vacation apartments through platforms such as booking or real estate agencies.
