Finding The Good Travel Deals

Expense is just something that goes hand in hand with travelling. It doesn’t matter if you are going away for a week or a year; the amount of money that you will spend is still something that a lot of people would gasp at. It’s hard to travel on a shoestring budget, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be done. You just need to know where to look for the essentials, as well as determining what exactly you actually need – and what you’re taking with you just because.

The main thing that you will need wherever you go is travel insurance. You shouldn’t ever just go with the first price that comes up to you. Instead, look for a travel insurance comparison site to give you the best deal that you can find. However, you shouldn’t compromise on what you are looking for. Disincluding certain things like medical cover and legal assistance may give you a better price in the long run, but if you ever actually needed to utilise these additions, you’ll be in more financial trouble than you’d care to admit.


Don’t be fussy with accommodation if you are wanting to save money. There are so many alternatives to hotels that it’s hard to know where to begin nowadays. If you have a look online at Airbnb, you will be able to see a multitude of different places to stay that are on offer from people who are renting out rooms and lodgings to travellers for a fraction of the price that you would pay for a traditional hotel. Hostels are also becoming a more and more popular option for those who are wishing to save money, with some being in some of the world’s most beautiful locations – a far step away from what you would usually associate hostels with.

Things To Do

One of the great things that the internet has given us is the ability to find an honest review. Not just that, but nowadays you can also filter out places of interest by how much they will cost you. This gives you the chance to find a whole realm of things which are within your budget. If you have the opportunity to speak to some of the locals from the area that you are visiting, they should be able to give you a clearer idea of what to expect in terms of pricing and where to go for the really good deals.


Ask Questions

The more questions that you ask about where you are going, especially to the people that have been there before, the more that you will find answers that you didn’t know you were looking for. You may find that some people have spare money that was left over from their previous trips that they can’t exchange (especially if it’s coinage) which can be offered to you for free or little charge. They may even be able to point you towards the airline that they used, taxi companies that they booked with upon landing … a load of options, that importantly are all saving you money.

  1. Hey, I love to travel. Not to keen on the hostel thing anymore but i like your post. There defo is good travel deals out there for flights and accommodation. I would say skyscanner for flights is the best and for the cheapest rents i look when i land. I know thats a bit risky but i take a tent in my backpack just incase i end up without accommodation for a day or two but usually everything turns out fine coz there’s always somewhere! And its always much cheaper once your in the country itself. Anyway i enjoyed reading your blog. Thanks!
