Traveling On The Cheap – Vacationing At The Best Possible Value

There comes a point in the lives of many people when they think they’re finally ready to explore the ancient ruins of Greece, lie on the sands of the Bahamas traverse the challenging paths of Bluejohn Canyon, and generally just travel and explore the world outside of their comfort zones. While that’s all well and good, sometimes there’s one little snuggle that can put these travel plans on indefinite hold: budget concerns.


To counter this, a lot of experienced travelers already utilize various tips to bring down costs as much as possible. For instance, many book their flights weeks before the actual departure, sometimes even months ahead if travel agencies provide such promos. Some even already lay out planned budgets for this activity for that day so they won’t have to blindly spend their allowances away unless absolutely necessary. Other tips include stuff like wearing your luggage, turning off the data-roaming functions of phones to avoid racking up unnecessary bills, making sure to have everything you need beforehand to avoid buying overpriced items at airports, and many more.

If you use your own car to drive to the airport, the issue of leaving your car at a secure place while you’re away should also be considered. A lot of companies – both online and off – now recognize the growing need for this type of service, especially for the world’s busiest airports like Heathrow. Many companies even go the extra mile. parking4less.com’s Heathrow parking page not only has price listings for airport parking, but lists nearby hotel parking as well – something that many companies are beginning to follow suit with to aid travelers.

Which brings us to the question of accommodation once travelers arrive at their destinations. This can be rather problematic. Thankfully, there are always solutions, as apart from cheap hotels within close proximity to most popular airports, affordable living spaces are just a Google search away. Of course, some folks are just lucky enough to have friends or relatives at their intended destinations meaning that they won’t have to spring for hotels. (image by Radek Nemecek)

Many travel agencies are keen on these travelers’ dilemmas, and have gone beyond just offering budget packages. Moreover, would-be trekkers are actually opting to try other destinations which, apart from their inherent natural beauty, also offer the best possible overall value provided by the cost-to-experience ratio. In other words, they’re going for the get-more-while-paying-less route. Travelers should be looking to forego the usual Eurozone tourist spotsin favor of countries like Tunisia and Turkey, where overall costs won’t be as high as a trip to Spain or Portugal. Traveling is all about delving into the unknown. Given that, looking for destinations other than the usual stops is actually in line with the activity’s ideals. Not costing as much as usual is just the icing on the cake.

In the end, it all boils down to adequate preparation. As the old G.I. JoePSAs used to say, “knowing is half the battle.” It pays to have everything scoped out early before finally committing.
