Great Vacations Aren’t Always Expensive


Every hard working person deserves a great vacation and he doesn’t have to spend all what he had worked for just to experience it. Travel agencies can give much help but they won’t be working for free and their services aren’t that difficult to do.

The earlier you would be able to know the dates of your vacation the better most especially if you’re travelling by air. Majority of the funds intended for the entire trip would be for the airfare and they can be acquired at a cheaper rate when booked several months before the flight. Plane companies even offer seat-sale packages to famous tourist destinations. Most of these airlines have official websites and by subscribing to their email newsletters, you would be able to get to know the promo ahead everyone else. Sometimes they will be sending out limited codes for the promo similar to OneTravel promo code.

Now that your plane tickets are secured, your next task is to search for budget-saving accommodations in the area. Learn to compare hotel rates and check its proximity to your planned destinations. If hotel rates are soaring high, you can look for transient inns and dormitories. You won’t be staying in this place most of the time so why are you going to spend much on it. It’s enough to ensure a safe place to stay for the night.

Next thing you would do is to search for the available transportation of the place you’re visiting. Some places don’t have taxis so you’ll end up dealing with what they have in store like Thailand’s tuktuk and Philippines’ tricycle. This is how you’re going to roam around and it should not be consuming your budget.

In your vacation, the most important thing to achieve is to fully experience what the place has to offer. If it’s a beach destination then spend time with the sand and water activities; if it’s a historic tour, absorb all the information that brings; if it’s a nature trip, don’t miss taking pictures. This is the right time to make use of your hard earned travel coupons together with your well deserved vacation.

i must agree. if someone knows how to plan his next travel + all the right places to look for seat sale + cheap accommodations, i don’t think travel vacations need to be expensive 😉

Backpack travelling is the best way to save money while enjoying your travel. But I guess that is not applicable to those who have families already. 🙂

i agree. it’s best to go on vacations during off-peak, that’s when me & hubby visited Boracay and it was really fun…a lot cheaper, same amenities:)

A happy vacation will only be achieved when all is planned well, much more if you know that you did not spend a lot but have a good vacation 🙂

Yes, vacations are not always expensive. I have learned this in my recent trips. My advice is to be more resourceful. The internet is a big help to save on costs. There are a lot of bloggers who share travel guides and tips which can be really helpful in knowing your place of destination.
