A student desperately in need of a vacation? On a budget?

Travelling does not always have to be high class and beyond reach. It can be cheap and accessible as well - Know how to travel the budget and you can see the world for half the price you expected the trip to be in the first place.

Location is the main key to Budget travelling. It all depends on where you’re going and the expenses there. For example $100 could last you a week in Asia while it would not even take an hour to spend that much in France. Firstly do not let the Airfare prices make these rash decisions for you. Travelling to the destination may be cheap but the stay may be out of your comfort zone or vice versa. Think wisely. Consider all costs.

Secondly, Accommodation is probably the most expensive of them all. Why not consider a way of staying for free. Yes! Volunteer Abroad. It would be a great way to save up cash and also an incredible experience overall. Stay with a local there, learn their ways, get an insider look on their lives – don’t stalk.  Plan ahead for your travels. Flight prices vary, so wait for the right moment before grabbing your ticket.  

Think of all your transportation alternatives that is offered by your preferred destination. Planes and taxis everywhere could add a load on your travel budget, consider local transportation.

Lastly but not the least try sleeping cheap, Think outside of the fancy hotel rooms. Consider local hostels or just do a homestay. Choose what’s best for you and for your travel budget. Student Discounts? Yes it is real.
