Traveling is becoming more and more important in people’s lives, and although they do not have all the comforts, it is done until impossible to make a couple of short trips during the year. If you are one of those who love to travel but are a bit tight in the economic field, in this guide you will find basic and not so basic tips to survive in another city or country without spending as much money but enjoying as much as possible of all new places.
Ask for ideas
On destinations, on the attractions of each destination, restaurants, hotels, etc. Friends who have already traveled to that place are the best guides you can find, but you can also give opinions on networks and specialized pages a chance.
Contrast opinions. Do not get carried away by what one person says, compare the opinions of several and even visit the official websites of the sites.
Organize an itinerary and plan B, C and even D. Make a list of the places you want to visit each day without keeping the schedule very tight, but keep in mind that a thousand and one things can happen, so you should have backup plans. What do I do if I get sick? What do I do if I run out of money? What do I do if X site is closed? You should be able to answer all those questions.
Take advantage of free sites
In each place there are museums, squares, old houses, among other sites that are free depending on the time and day. It is best to find out and organize the itinerary accordingly.
Don’t be afraid to pay for a good meal. You can save on everything, but it will always be worth enjoying a good typical meal in the place you are visiting, even if that means paying a little more.
Notify the bank about your trip. In an emergency, your credit or debit card must be enabled to be used abroad and that is something you can arrange by calling the bank and communicating the dates you will be out of the country – if it is a trip inside, that It won’t be necessary.
Do not be afraid to stay in a cheap place
Remember, the idea of the trip is to know new places and relax, and for that you will not have to spend much time in the hotel, so do not be scared if you only have enough to pay for one that does not have all the possible comforts, and think about everything what you can know with the money you save.
Something that will make your trip much easier is to have the necessary resources, whether maps, guides, brochures or passes, but also a credit card that allows you to make the corresponding movements if necessary. Some even benefit it if you use them abroad. If your card offers nothing in exchange for its use, try comparing them all and looking for the best option available. Your trip and your pocket will thank you.
