Travel Tips for Budget Travelers

Traveling on a budget allows more people the opportunity to see more of the world. This article provides information not on which countries or cities to visit, but how to make the most of a visit anywhere in the world.

Travelling on a budget is possible in both expensive and inexpensive locations; however, and perhaps obviously, the latter accommodates budget travellers more than the former. Inexpensive travelling is best in inexpensive areas. Inexpensive areas are typically those that have yet to be discovered by the mainstream public. That said, finding the undiscovered is not usually easy. My recommendation is to go off the beaten track. How does one go about doing that? One piece of advice: communicate with the locals. Many of the best, most affordable travel destinations are unknown by foreigners but well known by the locals in the area. Often, these less-mainstream locations are the most popular among locals on a budget.

Another way to find the unexpected is to travel via a vehicle. Car trips give you the flexibility to visit enclaves that are inaccessible to public transportation. Travel via car also gives you the opportunity to travel during less hospitable months or days of the year, when many vacation hot spots reduce prices.

Besides strategic locations, it is also important to rest in non-traditional tourist homes. Such homes include renting an apartment in a quieter part of the city, renting a local-style home in a village or staying in a sparse hut by a beach. These destinations allow you to immerse in the culture by living the lifestyle of the locals. Such lifestyles can often take you on unexpected adventures.

Moving beyond the general, some obvious budget friendly options also include countries with struggling economies or developing nations. Many of these countries prove to be cheaper for numerous reasons. More agricultural countries (such as countries in Latin America or Sub-Saharan Africa) tend to have inexpensive food, and richer economies struggling during recessions (such as the Eurozone countries) tend to have a weaker currency than usual (thus strengthening your own currency's buying power). Occasionally it can pay off to strategically plan around economic realities of the day.

In my experience, developing countries are the easiest on a budget. But, wherever you go, a budget savvy traveller must also be a smart traveller. By following the tips listed above, in addition to the more concrete recommendations reflecting current events, you and your entourage should have a rewarding trip that is easy on your wallet, while, in actuality, is priceless.
