Top 11 Ways to make your Travel Economic

By traveldecorum | budget travelling

Aren’t we all on a budget? High or low, a set budget for travelling makes it economic and easy at the same time. Travellers who take holidays and explorations to other countries often need budget travel. This way you get to travel without blowing up your entire savings on one destination. Travelling as a means to explore this whole wide beautiful world needs us to be mindful of each spend we make. Economizing is the best solution! Here are some clever and small ways to economize your upcoming travel.

Set a target
travel budget

First and foremost, set a goal! You should know how much you have versus what you think you will spend on the trip. Having a base figure is the best way to evaluate your spending. Fix an amount and work all things around it. This ideal figure will help you in all your bookings too. This budget will prove to be your holy grail.

Save on flights

There are great deals and offers running on travel websites very frequently. When you book well in advance, the flight fares are considerably low and your travel plans are in order to accordingly move to the next step. Keeping time between all bookings makes sure you are economizing on each step wisely. You can get the lowest fares when booking on weekdays and preferably during the afternoon.

Every penny counts

It is important to know that every spend counts as a part of the total budget. If you want to splurge on one key element, try to save on the other. Keep variable vacation elements in check like the partying or in between transit etc.

Accommodation selection is key

Choosing your hotel wisely ensures a major part of your trip done well. There are so many budget hotels and medium budget hotels with a lot of entertainment facilities. As per the number of days you are planning to stay in a particular city, pick an affordable yet comfortable accommodation with a chosen meal plan according to itinerary.

Avoid car hires

Of course car hires ease the travel! But you don’t need a car 24*7. In a new city or place, walking around the roads and lanes makes for a better experience for a traveller. Hire a car only when travelling longer distances. You save but you enjoy more this way!

Keep the group small

When you travel in a big group, you will have to make the itinerary that suits everyone’s needs. If there are kids, entertainment will play a major role. In a budget travel scenario, a smaller group is easier to manage and the budget can be kept intact. You can add whatever is relevant to that particular travel and city according to you and skip the mundane.

Choose the destination wisely
Choose the destination

There are so many countries and cities to see in the world. But all do not fit in your required criteria always. Choose a destination that will be fun even if you are on a budget and cannot splurge on things. When you are economizing your travel, the city is the most important piece of the puzzle. E.g. A budget vacation in New York might not be as enjoyable whereas the same budget holiday in Cali might leave you enchanted

Research is Must
Research is Must

Travelling is all about options. Research the city beforehand. Plan your holiday in a way that you don’t leave any stone unturned. Sticking to a budget will never be difficult then. Researching and planning your itinerary is the best way for an economic traveller to vacation. You will be ready with options whenever you get stuck.

Keep an open mind
Keep an open mind

Don’t be rigid in your options and opinions. Be open to new experiences and save on an impulse as opposed to only planning. If something doesn’t go according to plan, find a way around it that is going to help save. Even if you spend more or splurge on one thing, do not panic. There will be plenty of options to choose from. Flexible travellers are more economic than rigid ones.

Use Public Transport
Use Public Transport

Use the public amenities to the fullest. Travel by metro, take the train, use the subway and opt for a bus ride. Public transport helps save a lot of money and is way more convenient than a car or taxi. In smaller groups, it is also a lot of fun and you get to explore the city in its true spirit and experience the vibe.

Budget the meals
Budget the meals

One important thing to note during a holiday is the meals. Opting for a hotel accommodation with a kitchenette is a great idea. You can home cook your meal instead of having to only eat out. You cut down on unnecessary expenditure as well. When you eat out, splurge! Rest you can save by cooking. Economic travellers always book according to plan. If a kitchenette is not available, try to budget how much you will spend on dinner vis-à-vis lunch or breakfast. E.g. If you have a fancy dinner reservation at night, eat light and cheap food for lunch.

Economic travelling is neither tedious nor boring if planned the right way! Rather it is one of the best ways to travel given that you plan more and hence see and experience more. If budget travelling increases the number of holidays you take in a year, the saving is so worth it!
