Research on Hotels

Before booking your hotel, what you need to do is to search for the hotels at your destination. There are many cheap accommodations everywhere around the world. All you need to do is to search very well.

Use Public Transport

Using public transportation at your destination will help reduce expenses. If you are visiting Nigeria, for instance, there are so many public transportations that are very convenient and comfortable to move around with.

Use Vacation rental condominium

Vacation rental condominium is less expensive compare to hotel rooms and there are a lot of spaces that can accommodate you.

Plan in advance

Planning in advance can help you secure a good deal for both hotel and airfare. There are some hotels that offer a discount for early birds (early bookings). The same is applicable to airlines. When you book in advance the price tends to be lower than when you book few days to your travel date.

Mind The Dates You Chose

The dates you choose can influence the amount you will spend on your trip. For instance, if you’re travelling during peak season, you will spend higher than when you are travelling during off peak seasons and you will save more money during the off-peak period.

Cost of Living

One of the things you should not joke with when choosing a destination is the cost of living in the country. Cost of living varies from one country to another.

Don’t travel on weekends

Some group of researchers claimed that travelling during the weekend (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) is more expensive than travelling midweek by air. What this simple mean is that travelling within the week is less expensive than weekends.

Travel with valuable Items

There are some things you should not ignore when travelling. Things like jacket/coat this well help you and save you from spending money to buy a new one. Even if there is no rainfall in your destination, it is better to go prepared.

Travel With Your Own Food

I remember when I was travelling with my friends and we cooked our own food, it was really fun and we didn’t spend much on food for the journey. You can try it. The price of foods varies from one country to another. You can travel with snacks and drinks. It will help you save a lot of money you would have spent on food.

Go For Free Entertainment

Instead of spending a huge amount of money on entertainment, you can look around for free shows to attend. For instance in Lagos, there are bars and clubs that you can access free of charge. You can enjoy the music, comedy show etc. there are also museums, art gallery and other attractions/activities you can enjoy for free or pay a token just to encourage them.

Ask Questions

When you get to your hotel, the first thing I would advise you to do is to contact the hotel concierge and ask them questions like rules and regulation of your destination, where to go and places to avoid, the nearest bus stop, the prices of local commodities etc.
