Who doesn’t want to travel and see new things in the world? Travelling doesn’t have to break the bank. You can travel on a budget while still enjoying the finer things in life without having to dig deep in your wallet.

Traveling can get quite expensive; however, it doesn’t have to be if you know how to plan and budget accordingly. After traveling to Atlanta this past month, I found out that by planning and budgeting before your trip, you can save lots of money as I did. Hopefully, these budget and travel tips will help you start planning your next trip and make travel a large part of your life.

Travel during low seasons

This is key when you want to travel on a budget. Typically, the high seasons to avoid are summer and winter. However, this can vary from case to case, so it’s best to do prior research.

Avoid Tourist Traps

Tourist hotspots and big cities are more expensive most of the time. Try to choose less well-known destinations if you can. Everyone wants to go to Bora Bora or Tahiti, but places like Thailand or the Bahamas are just as beautiful and often cheaper.

Get Free Flights

By signing up for a travel credit card, you can start earning points that can pay for your flight. For example, with Southwest, you can earn 40,000 points just by signing up for their credit card, and those points will allow you to buy flight tickets locally and internationally.

Travel with a Friend

It can be fantastic to travel alone, but if you really want to save, it’s best to find a friend or group of friends who will go with you and split the cost 50:50. Honestly, it is a win-win situation for the both of you!

“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page,” said Saint Augustine.

This is one of my favorite quotes for traveling and discovering the world. You never know what’s beyond you if you don’t explore. Take the time while you can because there is so much to learn. There are plenty of other travel tips and hacks out there on how to travel on a budget.

Traveling is a beautiful opportunity, but traveling on a budget makes it more accessible to people, especially college students. There are cheap places to travel all over the world.
