Saving money while traveling can help you make the most of your adventures without breaking the bank.


Local Walking Tour


Here are some tips to help you save money on your travels:

  • Plan and Budget:

  • Set a realistic travel budget before you go and stick to it. This will help you manage your expenses more effectively.

  • Consider Alternative Airports:

  • Check if flying into or out of nearby airports is more cost-effective, even if it means a slightly longer journey to your destination. 

  • Amanda’s family prefers direct flights and will often drive to major airports. Many hotels offer stay and park rates or check with friends that live nearby!

  • Use Public Transportation:

  • Opt for public transportation or ride-sharing services instead of taxis or rental cars. It's often more budget-friendly and a great way to explore like a local.

  • Walk and Cycle:

  • Explore cities on foot or by bicycle to save money on transportation while staying active and enjoying the local culture.

  • Cook Your Meals:

  • Save on food expenses by preparing some of your meals in self-catering accommodations or trying street food and local eateries.

  • On our signature month in Spain, we often bought traditional to-go meals, pastries, and fresh-squeezed orange juice from the grocery store down the street. 

  • Pack Light:

  • Avoid checked baggage fees by packing light and using carry-on luggage whenever possible. **Pro-tip, make sure your airbnb has a washer and dryer so you can reuse outfits!

  • Traveling with Travec? Use our Insider Info to plan Low-Cost Activities:

  • We will give you the low-down on free or inexpensive attractions, museums, and events in our Signature Destinations.

  • Use Travel Apps and Loyalty Programs:

  • Download travel apps for discounts, and join loyalty programs for airlines to earn rewards and enjoy exclusive offers.

  • Avoid Currency Exchange Fees:

  • Use a credit card with no foreign transaction fees 

  • Negotiate and Haggle:

  • In some countries, bargaining is common. Don't be afraid to negotiate prices for souvenirs, taxis, or tours.

  • Buy a Local SIM Card or Use an ESIM:

  • Instead of using your home mobile plan, buy a local SIM card for data and call services to avoid roaming charges.

By following these tips and being mindful of your spending, you can enjoy a fantastic travel experience without overspending. Remember that saving money while traveling doesn't mean sacrificing fun; it's about making the most of your resources and making wise choices.
