When to save for the trip?

You’ve probably been wondering how much money do you need for this amazing trip you were planning for the next winter/spring/summer/fall. There’s always the pricey part of plane tickets and transportation, which is especially relevant if you don’t enjoy looking for the best flight deals. There’s also accommodation, which you surely want to be cute. And who could travel without exploring local cuisine, so you also have to add money for restaurants and bars to your future expenses’ list.

Once you add everything up, depending on your needs and country you plan to visit, you will end up with either average, high or very high amount of money you need for your next trip. Then you start saving money for this adventure and wait until the right time comes.

Plane tickets might cost a lot. But you can find amazing deals - just check.

But what if you saved before and during the trip? Spend some time analyzing the plane tickets you need and buy the best one. You may even have to consider a longer layover, which could help you save another hundred of dollars. And what about saving on the accommodation? Instead of 5 star hotel, choose 4 star with the best review score. Instead of the private dorm room, choose the nicest dorm in the hostel. And of course food. Why should you go to the overpriced restaurants and bars on the main tourist streets? Ask tips for your new local friends – they will be glad to help you find the best and not overpriced restaurant.

Look for the best reviews, not the highest number of stars of the hotel.

So if you start saving now and keep on doing while you travel, I’m sure you will leave way earlier and will enjoy the same amazing adventures.
