Tips to travelling on a budget

  • Make a plan – you don’t have to plan an hour by hour itinerary however it is good to have an idea of what you intend to do on your holiday so you can book in advance where you can. The less last minute booking you do, the more likely you are to save money.
  • Decide on a daily travel budget – decide on how much you are allocating to spend each day. Sometimes you’ll go over, sometimes you’ll be way under, but with a little discipline your daily spend will even itself out
  • Book flights in advance
  • Try travel during the shoulder season – google when the best time of year is to visit your destination and try and book just before or after those dates.
  • Make your splurges count - Sticking to a tight travel budget doesn’t mean you can’t do the things you love, however when you do, make it count and lay low the days before and after to even out your daily cost.
