Budget travel tips: Save money on transport
Budget travel is basically a learnable set of skills. In this guide you'll learn tips and tricks to help you save on transport.
1
Book your transport in advance where possible. Many travel companies offer early booking discounts and increase prices closer to the date of travel.
2
If you can't book way in advance, take advantage of last-minute deals instead.
3
Set up price alerts: Sign up to travel apps that will email you about price drops, and act fast once you get that email.
4
Be flexible with your dates, so you can make the most of travel deals you find online.
5
Try to travel mid-week instead of on weekends, because weekends are too popular and prices are usually higher.
6
Buses are often cheaper than trains, but can be just as comfortable, with reclining seats and free WiFi.
7
Hitchhiking is a great way to save on transport and also make new friends and unforgettable memories.
8
Use incognito mode for private browsing when you compare prices. This prevents dynamic pricing.
9
If a direct flight is too expensive, book a connecting flight to save money and enjoy a quick layover in another city.
10
Take public transport to and from the airport to save money. Check the airport's official website for options.
11
Hire a bike in places that have good bike lanes. You'll save both money and time, plus you'll get to see the city like a local.
