Budget traveling tips:
Plan the trip in off season: Every place has its own respective season; in the season there is a deluge of tourists visiting the place. For e.g.: If you are visiting European countries, remember that summer is the season for visitors to explore the continent. This is the peak traveling time and many travelers love to travel in the season.
The airfares, hotel fares and all services will be all time high because of the tourist’s frequency. So, to control the frequency, everyone hikes their services. If you are traveling in the season, you should be ready to spend extra bucks on every service. As winter is off season, all the prices will be normal or you can get discount prices on every service.
Try staying in hostels: Surprised! Yes some historical places are trying to minimize the cost for the tourists and have turned some castles into dormitories for providing accommodations. But the main drawback of these places is they look like hostels and you need to share your room with other co-tourists. These even have a separate kitchen and you can even cook your own food while minimizing the food charges.
Compare prices: When traveling to a new place, try to get the best price on every service you need. Compare different prices online and get the best price you can afford. With different online sites, you can book airline tickets, accommodations and traveling reservations on finger tips.
When choosing your required services online, see that you compare the services the provider is offering you. Some sites may say you that a particular price is the best price they can offer, but this price may not be the best price when compared to other online services. So check other online services and get the best price.
Hidden charges: This is the worst experience for many tourists; when you have booked a service everyone forgets to ask about the hidden charges. But this is the most important aspect if you are planning for budget traveling. So, see that the service you have hired, whether it can be a car, airline or accommodations, have any hidden charges.
