15 Ways to Save Money While Travelling This Summer

Travelling is a great way to spend your summer, but it can cost a lot if you aren’t careful. Here are 15 ways to save money while travelling this summer.

 

1. Stick to Your Budget!

It’s easy to go overboard with impulse buys, especially when you’re having a great time. Stick to the cash you have on hand, except in emergencies. And no, an untapped keg of beer isn’t an emergency.

 

2. Plan Ahead

Many unexpected expenses occur when you don’t plan for basic needs, like toothbrushes or sunblock. Make a checklist of everything you need and don’t wait until the last minute to start packing.

3. Use Vouchers

You can find the cheapest accommodations via vouchers offered by sites like Groupon. And be sure your spot has a grill on site, because whenever possible you should…

 

4. Cook

Avoid eating out when travelling, unless the food is unique to the place. If the only thing on offer is a burger from a franchise, you’re wasting money. Just buy stuff from the grocery and whip up a meal; you’ll save a bundle.

5. Go Camping

If you really want a great summer vacation that would make Scrooge proud, then break out the tents, sleeping bags, and portable stove. Make a list of places where you can camp out. If you really want to score brownie points, you could find a place near a lake and catch your breakfast.

 

6. Condition Your Ride

If it’s a road trip you’re planning, make sure your car is primed; check the oil, brake fluid, tire pressure, radiator water level, etc. A smooth-running vehicle saves on gas, cash, and aggravation.

 

7. Stay at Hostels and Guesthouses

It’s not exactly The Ritz but it’s much cheaper than even a cheap motel, and many hostels and guesthouses provide a decent place to sleep. Check out what sites like TripAdvisor say about a facility before making a booking.

8. Enjoy the Local Cuisine

Street food and small family-owned restaurants are usually the best way to imbibe the local culture as well as the reasonably-priced eats. But drink bottled water the whole time you’re travelling--just to be on the safe side.

 

9. Stop Hopping Around

Travelling for fun is not about quantity but quality. Take the time to enjoy a particular place before moving on. It’s not a contest.

 

10. Go for Cheap Flights

If you prefer travelling by air, you can get deep discounts by booking your flight far in advance. Keep your flight times and airports flexible to find the best possible fares for your destination.

11. Go Out of Season

Airfare and accommodations are naturally cheaper when there are fewer people travelling. Plan your travel on weekdays, late summer when it’s still warm, and avoid holidays.

12. Avoid Tourist Traps

There are places just waiting to siphon money off tourists. Get off the beaten track and see what hidden treasures you can find.

 

13. Use Local Connections

If you’re going overseas, avoid roaming charges by getting local prepaid SIMs. Also use WiFi whenever it’s available to send messages back home via Viber or Skype.

 

14. AirBnB    

This fantastic travel site can set you up with a place to stay on the cheap, and provide you with all the amenities of home.

 

15. Enjoy the Free Stuff

See the sights and breathe in the air; they’re both free. You can also watch a street concert, walk in the local market, or go to the park. Hoof it to disparate destinations and you’ll save big on cab fare.
