The best way to save money when travelling is to think be wise and budget then one can get thing s right. I think this is particularly important if one is travelling as a family. Only if one has loads of money and couldn’t care less about how much money they spend.
In this present time that we are living in, things has gotten harder for people all over the world. Especially with gas at a very high price now, and every one feeling the effects now. Airline prices that were more affordable are going to sky rocketing prices. Food prices have escalated; especially the price of rice and meat. Some supermarkets are suffering badly because they have lost a lot of their customers. Who are buying food products at cheaper prices from the markets; due to the credit crunch. So it’s wise to sample local food joints and get food cheaper to cook or such places to eat or with ones family.
If one’s going to a resort for holiday, it would be cheaper to go self catering. Bring as much non perishable food from home to cook. Going on a car trip with kids will be cheaper. Go with a cooler where one can pack drinks and snacks. If this is not done one can find it costly stopping at supermarkets or petrol/gas stations to buy food and drinks. Always pack food and drinks from home and replenish it and one’s destination.
If travelling with friends or family it will be cheaper if one splits money for meals between each other. This means each person contributing half of the money between each other. Or when it comes to accommodation them sharing a room or rooms together and splitting the price between each other.
One can even save a bit more money if one goes a bit further. By doing some research such a planning vacation in the summer time will be of good help. In so doing listen in advance to weather bulletins to know what sort of weather conditions a particular day or days will be. If planning for a weeks holiday or more, one can go camping. Reserve a place at a campground, get and tent and some camping equipment. Make sure such a place offers amenities for cooking, showering and that there are activities for children and teenagers to occupy themselves with. Knowing all these information and putting them into place saves one from spending too much money.
Another way of saving money is by using public transport instead of optioning for cabs. Walking to places of interest if thy are walking distance is also cost effective and beneficial for ones health. Implementing all these acts helps one to save money.
