Who likes it travel? Almost everyone! Who likes to spend a lot when traveling? Almost nobody! So I think this article will be very useful for many people who want to discover the world without spending all their savings.
There are a number of tricks that allow us little travel, but you have to know them and put them into practice so that our days of leisure do not translate into a painful bill that excessively postpones our next trip.
1- Take some food
If you go on vacation to a country like Thailand, don't do it, unless you don't want to give up the taste of good ham so many kilometers away from Spain. However, in destinations like Norway you can regret not having brought sausage and other foods that weigh and occupy very little. Having money to go to a site is one thing, but then you have to have a series of expenses that can complicate your life. The most accused, almost always, those of meals.
2- Walk as much as you can and more
The most expensive option in the world is to go by taxi, so don't think about it unless it's a necessity. Then there is the matter of renting a car, which is also not usually cheap and has you all the trip worried if the car takes a hit and the franchise does not cover it. The next step, which is the one we usually sell as economic, is to go by bus, metro or train. It is true that it is the cheapest option of all those mentioned above, but no less true is that you will save much more going to the sites walking.
3- Stay away from the center
What I just mentioned in the previous paragraph is more expensive if you have chosen a hotel that is not near the center, since it is not the same to walk for 15 or 20 minutes than to have to do it for an hour or more. Calculate if you will save more by staying on the outskirts and taking public transport or approaching the center to walk.
4- Solve all your doubts
Sometimes, for not making a fool of myselfWe were left wanting to ask questions that are not really ridiculous at all. For example, if this is your first time traveling to Italy, you probably don't know what the famous «coperto»They charge you in many restaurants. That makes the food end up costing you more than you thought, especially if you go with your family.
5- Beware of luggage
Traveling with little luggage is not only a relief for weight issues to drag, but it will also allow you to purchase products at your destination to carry them in the suitcase without fear of being charged more for over weight or for carrying it in your hand.
6- Compare prices
If you're hanging around a restaurant area to go eat, look carefully at the letters of many of them to compare and make a good decision. Remember that going to the cheapest is not always synonymous with success. Any advice about it? Never go to a restaurant that is completely empty while the others are full. It is a bad sign.
In the same way, you should also compare the prices of souvenirs entering several stores, since many times they have the same products with prices that can vary outrageously. If you buy them at very tourist areasBe prepared to pay more than normal.
7- Buy water in supermarkets
Especially if you travel in summer, which is when the heat passes and we need to go with bottles in the backpack. If you buy them in lost places or in beach bars they will cost you much more than if you buy them in a supermarket. Be farsighted.
8- Visits on days with free admission
You already know that there are exhibitions, museums, art galleries and tourist attractions that can sometimes be visit for free. There are some that one day a week offer free admission, while there are others that can only be visited without paying once a month. Find out to plan your trip as low cost as possible.
9- Haggle in the markets
You already know how street markets work. No need to be in it Marrakesh souk to haggle over a seller. They know you are a tourist and start with a high price in case you want to haggle. They are prepared and know how far they can go. You should know that too so as not to be too burdensome in negotiations.
10- Student card everywhere
Do you have a student card? Take it away! Many times you have a discount in museums, tourist attractions, etc. Best of all, they hardly look at it, so you can present a university card from more than 10 years ago just in case.
