Are you considering to travel soon? However, you don’t have much money and you doubt whether you should quit the idea. We say – don’t quit the idea because we’ve prepared a simple guide for cheap travel.
Despite the fact that you won’t need much money to travel, you will also experience an unforgettable fun travel. Keep reading and check out the only guide you need if you want to travel on a budget and still have a great time.
Start point – where do you want to go?
Leave out your budget and answer a simple question – where do I want to travel?
Once you chose your dream destination, check the Internet to find a cheap airplane, bus or train ticket. Once you do, don’t hesitate to book your ticket and prepare your backpack. However, if you can’t afford your ticket, find a short-term job and save some money. Once you do, move to the second point and learn how to travel and survive on a budget. Or maybe earn some money on your travel.
The second point – what do you need to pack?
It’s simple. Pack only the essentials in your backpack and hit the road. If you pack more than you need, you will carry unnecessary weight and spend a lousy time resting everywhere. Don’t make the same mistake as everyone else. You will be surprised how little you need to survive far away from home.
The third point – find a free accommodation and free meals
This will be a bit harder but not impossible. Consider asking a family on your travel to let you stay in their house. In return, offer to walk their pets, become a nanny or help them with home activities.
If you don’t like this option, try a monastery. They don’t charge for sleepovers and you can crash there for a few nights. However, if you don’t like this idea as well, you can always choose camping. It’s the cheapest and best option! Just be careful when picking the spot for placing your camp. It shouldn’t be too public but also not too hidden in case of emergency.
The fourth point – earn some money and expand your travel
If you spend all your money while traveling, don’t panic! You can always work some short-term job like bartending, waitress or cleaner and earn some money. Are you maybe a freelancer? If yes, just don’t forget to bring over your laptop/tablet and start earning cash online. You know how! Just find a free Wi-Fi and get to work. And remember – never panic, no matter what while traveling!
The fifth point – enjoy yourself!
Traveling is not about stress. Whatever you do, do it without fear and panic. Whatever happens to you on your travel, accept it and stay calm. You will find a way and everything will eventually fall into place. Listen to your heart and intuition, they know the way. Enjoy yourself. Relax. Admire the adventure! Once you get back home, you will never be the same again.
