Tag: The Ultimate Guide to Budget Travel in 2023

Traveling on a tight budget can be challenging. However, after speaking with Jil Goulet of Jilly Plumbing, a close friend of mine out in Texas, we talked and felt that it’s defiantly not a reason to avoid traveling altogether, instead we discussed the topics that were important to us and agreed we shared the same interests. So as a recap, with the following tips, you can enjoy traveling to your favorite destinations despite your constrained finances.

Research Different Types of Accommodations

With the rise of Airbnb, many accommodation options exist, from hostels and hotels to private homes and apartments. Research beforehand to find out what kind of accommodation best suits your budget and needs.

Use Points and Rewards Programs

If you’re a frequent traveler, sign up for loyalty programs by airlines or hotel chains to get discounts and other benefits such as free upgrades or extra points. 

Consider Ridesharing Services

Ridesharing services like Uber or Lyft can be an affordable way to get around a city while on vacation. Be sure to compare different services’ costs to determine the most cost-effective.

Plan Your Meals

Eating out can be a fun way to experience a new culture, but it can also quickly add up if you need to be more careful. Consider researching local supermarkets and markets to purchase groceries for some of your meals. 

Take Advantage of Free Activities

Many cities offer free attractions such as city tours or walking tours, which are great ways to explore and learn about the destination without spending much money. 

Buy Travel Insurance

While it may seem unnecessary, travel insurance offers protection from unexpected events such as medical emergencies or flight delays, which could cost a lot of money. 

Pack Wisely

Pack only the essentials to avoid unexpected baggage fees, and be mindful of weight restrictions when flying. 

Look out for Deals

Many apps and websites offer exclusive discounts on flights, hotels, and other travel services, so it’s worth taking some time to do your research before booking a trip. 

Following these tips will help you save money while enjoying a fantastic vacation in 2023. Remember that budget travel is all about being smart with your spending, so you don’t have to sacrifice experiences or fun during your travels. …
