Travelling is not cheap – when you start your travel life, the most frequent question that you will hear is ‘how do you afford to travel so much?’ There are a few tips that I can share with you about money-saving when it comes to travelling on a budget. And one of the top tips that I will always share is to travel smart.
When choosing your tickets- I see people making one mistake- focusing too much on the prices. I know you may be thinking I am crazy right now, as this is one of the most important aspects when trying to save, and I can confirm that you can save up a couple of hundred dollars when you choose something cheaper, but you have to take a look at the bigger picture.
When you choose a destination – and you choose them according to the price of the air tickets you may need to spend more on the ground.
You have to know the on-ground cost before choosing a destination- do not focus only on the air ticket. The on-ground cost comprises everything from your morning coffee to the activities you are planning on doing.
You should keep an eye on the off-peak times- you will find lower prices and good deals on accommodations and sometimes even on some activities.
The Budget-Friendly Places To Travel;
Each person has a place that will always have a piece of their heart, and I guess that mine is South Africa. Surprisingly, South Africa has a lot of very affordable activities. The urban wonderland of Cape Town, world-class vineyards of the Cape Winelands, and the safaris of the bush come together to make South Africa one of the most diverse and beautiful designations on the globe.
There are available safaris, but most of you will find it expensive (and I understand), but it is important to see the pros and cons of all the activities if you are getting what you are paying for. Safaris will include accommodations, food and beverages, the wildlife conservation fees, and your guide. The cost may shock you, but it is money well spent, and you are getting what you are paying for.
Croatia is known for being one of the best Mediterranean budget-friendly destinations- which also provides a good exchange rate.
If you are an adventurer, you will be served in Croatia- be it sailing or hiking, the number of activities is incomparable. You will observe France and Spain’s beauty- making its own unique culture. You should visit Croatia at least once in your lifetime; this is a must.
If you want to experience Europe– but with cheaper options- I will recommend Croatia.
According to Wikipedia, if you are a nature lover, Costa Rica is home to 5% of the world’s wildlife. The Parque Nacional Tortuguero and the Parque Nacional Manuel Antonio are two of the world’s most beautiful parks.
If you are an adventurous traveller or even just want to relax, this is your destination.
Istanbul – Turkey
Istanbul is one of the best destinations for a solo female traveller. There are a lot of activities – free walking tours that you may want to join and a lot of other attractions.
This city should be your number one option if you are a fan of architecture like Istanbul, and on top of that, you will have the best food there. If you decide to go to Turkey, I recommend that you discover the cave hotels or Pamukkale- you won’t be disappointed.
These are the best destinations that you want to visit on a budget! Do not miss your chance to get to the most fabulous places where there is significant importance to culture. Let us know in the comments where you want to go next…
