Are you looking to save money and travel cheap? Many worry that they simply do not have the finances to travel. Yes, travelling can be expensive, however, you CAN travel cheap as well. You do not need to be rich to see the world.
These 5 tips will help you keep your pockets full – and still enjoy everything that travelling has to offer.
Get a job abroad:
To all the travel freaks, travel bloggers, vloggers, social media influencers and adventure seekers. If the money you make simply won’t allow you to spend on leisure, then it may be time to look for a job overseas. This of course only works if you have an open mind, are flexible and have no commitments at home. Jobs in the UAE, for example, pay very well and you may be able to afford trips to your favorite destinations. You may not have the right degrees or experience, but you can still get some decent work. Do not expect a prestigious office job right away. After all, you just want this job temporarily for your travel plans.
Teach English abroad:
English is a language that is essential in majority of businesses worldwide and a language that many want to learn. If you are a fluent speaker, teaching English overseas can be rewarding. The demand for teachers is high, and there is definitely some good money to be made here. Countries like Thailand or Tanzania can be great to start off with. Tanzania is a very safe country, living expenses are not high and there are plenty of local tours and activities to indulge in during your stay here.
This is a no-brainer. Just pop into a grocery store and buy all the essentials for a home cooked meal. You could end up saving over $100 in a week when you choose to cook yourself. Sometimes a simple sandwich can also work if you do not have the energy or time to cook. Most backpacking hostels or apartments on Airbnb have kitchens and necessary utensils you may need.
Share a room:
If you are on a group holiday or group tour, why not book a hostel room for 4 beds. This way you share out on costs and save a whole lot of money.
Walking Tours can be absolutely free! No need for the hop-on-hop-off bus if your feet can take you everywhere. You get to see much more and you can take breaks in between. Many towns and cities offer free walking tours.
To find what kind of tour you like best, contact local tour agents or hotel staff and they will be able to guide you.
