Seeing the world may be a perfect way to satisfy your wanderlust, broaden your horizons, make new friendships around the globe and discover your true passion in life – but there’s no doubt that it can be an expensive pursuit. Whether you want to continue funding your travels or eventually come back home and purchase one of the Meriton Apartments, it all takes one thing – money. So, how do you save money while still seeing the world and living life to its fullest extent?
Some top tips to save money while seeing the world are:
Check Out The Free Activities
If you look for them, most major cities have a huge amount of cultural events and happenings that are available for free. It’s a great way to have experiences without racking up lots of expenses on tickets and things. Many cities run free walking tours taking in local art, while museums quite often run free or discounted entry at quiet times, and there are no end of free city festivals. Do your research and plan to go at times when there’s lots to do.
Factor In Your Daily Travel
Often accommodation is cheaper when it’s a little bit out of the centre of your destination, but if you do choose to book, make sure you understand the cost of travel in-country. If you’ll be getting a train or a bus into the city regularly it can really add up. You may be able to save a bit of cash with a travel pass, or try and work out if there are cheaper locations where you can still walk into the central districts.
Save On Snacking
Food and drink, even bottles of water, when you’re out and about can end up eating a significant hole into your budget. Consider if it might be cheaper to find your way to a supermarket or wholesaler on arrival and purchase a small case of bottled water and some packs of cereal bars so that you always have something to take with you when you’re sightseeing or an impromptu breakfast.
Seek Out City Tourism Cards
A lot of major cities like New York and Paris operate a city tourism card it could be well worth signing up for while you’re visiting. Often they will offer free or discounted entry to local attractions, money off at certain restaurants, the option to skips the crowds at places of interest, deals on public transport and free guidebooks. Take a look at what’s on offer and you may find it’s a good money saving idea to sign up.
Get Flexible With Flights
Of course, flights are one of the major expenses of travel, but also one of the areas where you can save the most cash. If you can be a little flexible with your schedule and you can steel yourself for a little extra inconvenience you can make major savings. Doing stopovers and purchasing several one-way tickets can sometimes be cheaper than one direct return flight. Change the dates either way by a few weeks and you might see the price drop significantly. It’s worth playing around on Skyscanner to see what alterations you can accommodate your plans to make it more cost effective.
