Traveling seems to be at the top of everyone’s bucket list. And rightfully so! Traveling opens so many doors to the other avenues of the world. Here are 5 Tips For Budget Travel.

Think of all the things you’d be missing out on if you were forever sitting on your couch watching TV, letting the world pass you by. Don’t let that happen to you.

Instead of sitting and staring out the window and daydreaming of all the places you want to visit, why not make it happen? Traveling is possible for anyone to do! While most people will state that the valid reason that holds them back from traveling is the cost, that doesn’t make it an excuse. If you want to travel, there are ways to make it happen.

5 Tips For Budget Travel:

Do your research on becoming a house-sitter.

Yes, this is a thing. People do this all day, every day, and some people treat this as their way of life. Can you imagine being able to go to a different city to house sit for someone who is on vacation? If you can imagine it, it’s time to make it happen.

While house-sitting is technically considered a “job,” it’s usually minimal. Make sure the house appears lived in to deter burglars (no parties!), take care of any plants or animals that they may have, or possibly even do a bit of light-cleaning in the downtime, but for free accommodations and the chance to travel to a new city or town? Sign me up!

Travel with friends.

If you aren’t keen on traveling alone in the first place, why not see about getting a group together for those traveling plans? You know what they say… the larger the group, the cheaper the bill. When you travel together, you can cut the costs of just about everything!

Lodging, hotel, gas, food… you name it, especially if you go somewhere like Las Vegas! Grab your girls and have some fun! If you split the cost of everything, you’ll be able to splurge on something unique.

Book your trips during the non-tourist times of the year.

Traveling in primetime is expensive! If you don’t honestly care about the time of the year, why not book during the seasons when the costs are less? Head to the beach during the winter (it’ll still be warm, right?) or take a trip to Disney during one of their down months. You’ll still get to travel and save some major dough!

Research hotel prices before you book.

Many different travel sites offer ways to save money on hotel bookings. Priceline offers “express deals,” like flash sales that discount certain hotels and have their famous “name your own price” for varying hotels.

If you plan accordingly and do your research, you can save up to 40% off the listed hotel prices! I love to stay at IHG Properties, and their prices aren’t too high either! There’s also Expedia, Kayak, and Hotwire… to name a few. Budget travel is easier than you think!

Make it a workcation.

If you have a job that allows you to work from home, why not do a bit of work wherever you travel? You will still earn money, which will help make your trip cost less money. The more you work, the more you technically save. Remember that it’s supposed to be a fun traveling trip, so having the separation between the two is vital.

Don’t let the initial heavy price tag of traveling worry you. If you want to travel, find a way to make it happen. When you are looking to book your travels, don’t ever book the first price that you are shown! Do your research and search around to find the best possible deals.

Also, try to incorporate a few of the suggestions above to see if it can help you save even more!

The more money you save, the more traveling that you can do! And the more traveling that you can do, the happier you’ll be. Work on visiting all those destinations on your bucket list at the most affordable price possible. Be patient, plan and then enjoy once your feet hit the pavement and start to explore.
