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.
Book your transport in advance where possible. Many travel companies offer early booking discounts and increase prices closer to the date of travel.
If you can't book way in advance, take advantage of last-minute deals instead.
Set up price alerts: Sign up to travel apps that will email you about price drops, and act fast once you get that email.
Be flexible with your dates, so you can make the most of travel deals you find online.
Try to travel mid-week instead of on weekends, because weekends are too popular and prices are usually higher.
Buses are often cheaper than trains, but can be just as comfortable, with reclining seats and free WiFi.
Hitchhiking is a great way to save on transport and also make new friends and unforgettable memories.
Use incognito mode for private browsing when you compare prices. This prevents dynamic pricing.
If a direct flight is too expensive, book a connecting flight to save money and enjoy a quick layover in another city.
Take public transport to and from the airport to save money. Check the airport's official website for options.
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.
