If traveling is your number one passion, then you are probably saving a lot of money and preparing for your next trip already. Since that’s not an easy thing to do, you understand that horrible feeling you get after making bad mistakes that cost you a lot of hard-earned money.
Well, we have gathered many mistakes that we have been making and learning from throughout the past years, and now it is your turn to know them all and learn from them in order to make your next trip a mind-blowing experience.
Traveling during the daylight
If you are in a new country and you want to travel from one city to another on a train or a bus, you can save your time and money by traveling during the night.
First, you will be paying less money, no need to book the hotel room for an extra night, and you will be traveling in a traffic-free road, which means a peaceful sleep during the whole trip with no one honking or disturbing your dreams.
Forgetting the six-block rule
In case you never knew this before, the food is always double its price and not that good when you are within 6 blocks of a major of a popular tourist spot.
So in order to enjoy cheap and tasty food, then you have to stay away from crowded places where tourists hang out the most. Keep in mind that local street food markets always have the best food at the cheapest prices.
Not using ride-sharing
You may already know about services like Couchsurfing where you can stay at a local’s house instead of a hotel. Well, there are ride-sharing apps, too.
