Who doesn't like to Travel around the world? But the only problem stopping you to do travel frequently is the budget issue, right? If you are single and making good money, then I am sure you are able to fulfil your travel needs frequently, but people with a limited earning and big family are hardly able to make a single travel plan every year. In this article, I will be sharing some cool tips to plan your travel on limited budget. I will also share some tricks that will help you to plan trips to experience India more frequently, even if you have a shortage of budget.
Plan Your Trip on Off-Seasons
I know many people will not agree with me, as pick seasons are always good to enjoy the place to the fullest. But when we are talking about budget travel, then let me tell you that during pick seasons you will find it very difficult to get an affordable hotel room.
Besides that, you have to put extra effort for everything like food, good view from room, sightseeing etc. The obvious reason is, there is huge demand by default and that’s why they tend to charge you more money.
But if you are a smart traveller, I am sure you will agree with me that the best time to explore any place on this earth is during off season. Due to fewer crowds, you can easily access the premium facilities at a very cheap price. And on top of that the peace of mind and freedom you will get during such time is simply awesome.
Plan Your Trip in Advance
If you agree with my first point, then now get ready to plan your trip. As I said, during peak season due to high demand you will hardly get any offer. But if you are targeting the off seasons, then definitely you will get huge offers and promotions, especially on flight tickets and hotel booking.
I still remember, last year I got an offer to visit Andaman from Hyderabad @ Rs 2,000 per person. But anyhow my plan did not capitalise due to some priorities.
So, start tracking the flight tickets in advance and make your plan ready. So that as soon as you get any good offer, you can simply book your itinerary.
Do You Have a Credit Card?
Well, I guess you already have a credit card. If not, then let me tell you that there are some good travel credit cards available with which you can easily spend for your travel and get good discounts, cash backs and earn reward points regularly. Checkout the list of best travel credit card in India and apply for the one that best suits your need.
Personally, I prefer to have credit cards for any kind of payment, but never forgetting my spending power. Because at the end of the day, I should not spend unnecessarily and at the same time, should not miss those reward points also which I may not get if I pay through other modes of payment.
Try to Find Out Cheap Accommodations
Accommodation is one of the major travel expenses in every travel plan. So, try to spend less on hotel rooms. There is no point on spending for premium services when you are on a trip as you will just stay in the room at night to get a good sleep. Rest of the day you will simply roam the places.
Then why to spend much on premium or luxury services? Try to find out good, family friendly accommodation. For e.g. you can go for a room share concept or try to find out someone who is renting out their room for few days in a good locality rather than in any hotel or lodge.
So, these are few of the tips which will surely help you to manage your travel within budget. And in this way you can also save money and plan multiple trips in a year. Travelling is a must to get refreshed after a long monotonous schedule of our lives. So, plan smartly with these travel tips and get rejuvenated.
