5 Tips for Traveling on a Budget

I love traveling and I think anyone can make travel a part of their lives with a little penny pinching. You might have to save up for an airline ticket, but there are lots of little things you can do to save money while you are on a trip. Whether you pack just a backpack and stay in a hostel, or walk instead of hire taxis, there are always ways to travel on a shoestring! Check out five things I always do when planning my trip or while on the road:

Find Cheap Airfare

My favorite site for searching inexpensive airfares is You can see a month at a time and they search every site for you. Being flexible on your dates will help you save money. Kayak is the easiest site to search flexible dates.

    love the tip to pack lightly! After the first time I paid for checked luggage, I was cured of bringing any extras!

  2. Kelsey says:

    traveling can get so expensive. Great tips on the best ways to travel without breaking the bank!

  3. I wish I was better at ALL of these things. I can handle searching for less expensive airfare and don’t tend to buy many souvenirs, but I’m NOT a light packer. I need to work on that!

  4. Emily says:

    I just recently learned about and it is such a great resource for cheap airfare and hotel prices!

  5. Lauren says:

    pack lightly – yes and yes! and also agree about the souvenirs. I can’t resist them myself, but I never end up being able to do much with them. Better to let photos serve as your souvenirs.
