If you intend to travel on a budget, it is mandatory to make some efforts such as paying attention to the calendar and some other factor that may affect how much you will spend on your holidays…
If you are trying to save some money, the most important thing you need to pay attention to is when you buy your tickets, but keep in mind that there is no precise recipe to know whether it is better to buy your tickets in advance or at the last minute. Sometimes you’ll find nice offers with a few days left but, in general, it is better to buy your tickets beforehand. This will also give you more time to plan your trip without pressure.
There are websites that allow you to compare prices between tons of airlines and hotels, and you may even get some discounts using them. Another good way to be updated about discounts and sales is to subscribe to newsletters usually offered by these websites. You may see them as spam most of the time, but a good offer can arrive at your inbox anyday and make your holidays a bargain! Being spontaneous can also be good sometimes, there are offers that only last a few days or even hours. On the other hand, patience can also be a good skill since sometimes the good offers are flights with many stopovers and waiting in different airports, but hey, nothing is really free, right? Maybe even a long ride on a nightbus can help you save some dollars.
If you intend to travel by car, sharing a rental with friends, family or even people you meet on the road is always a great option for your pocket!
