It's that time of the year, spring semester is almost over and summer is right around the corner.
Everyone is planning their summer getaway trips and, depending on the city or country you plan on visiting, it can be pricey. As someone who loves to travel and loves trying new things and getting out of my comfort zone, I have done my research on traveling without breaking the bank and traveling on a budget. From a place to stay, flights, and food you can travel and not have to worry about expenses because you budgeted right.
Here's a few ways to travel, enjoy your stay, and not break the bank.
Nothing breaks the bank more than choosing a flight last minute and with the wrong airline. If you want the cheapest flights, book your flight on a Tuesday around midnight. Take the first flight in the morning; there's less people, which means short lines through security. Catch the red eye; these flights are from west to east, and this essentially shortens the night flight across time zones. Also, another great way is flying for free. Sign up for a few travel credit cards, collect miles and fly for free.
Travel with your pals or significant other and split the bill. Everyone pays their fair share of the hotel, airbnb, car, flight, food, and whatever activities you plan on doing. This way no one has to break the bank to accommodate everyone. At the end of the day, everyone enjoys themselves while making new memories. Just remember: you do not have to be rich to travel.
