It’s that time of the year when we get the chance to travel a lot, to explore new places, relax on beautiful beaches, trying new food, and so on. We want all that things but without a hole in our pockets, right?
If you read my previous post about How to Plan a Low Budget Vacation, now it’s time to find out how you can save money when you are actually enjoying your vacation.
Food might be expensive if you eat all the time at restaurants, instead go to grocery stores and cook/prepare your own food. Also, another affordable way is to buy food from the local markets or try street food.
2. Don’t go overboard with souvenirs
It’s nice to have things from the places you visit, but sometimes you get caught up in the moment and end up with a lot of them. Instead, take unique pictures, find a beautiful seashell, keep a museum ticket and so on. If you really want a souvenir, buy just one thing.
3. Don’t buy “great deals”
In the popular tourist destination, people will try to sell you on the street different things from clothes, jewellery to entrance ticket to some club or bar. Don’t buy it, it’s not a great deal and it might be a scam.
4. Walk more
Why getting a taxi or rent a car when you can explore and save money at the same time by walking. If you get tired you can use public transportation, it’s much cheaper.
5. Use cash
I know that you will feel safe to have your money on a bank card, but using cash you will avoid foreign transaction fees.
That’s it, 5 simple tips to follow when you are on vacation. You will not save a fortune, but you will definitely see the difference.
