Budget Travel

When it comes to affordability you must take all the factors into account that may have an impact on your budget. 

  • Transport costs like flights, airport transfers, car rentals, or using your own car. Also, if you’re not traveling with your own car or a rental car, allow for bus or train tickets to and from different sightseeing spots.
  • Accommodation expenses – Remember when you stay over with friends or family, there are always additional expenses to contribute to the household or buy thank-you gifts.  If you’re staying in a hotel or lodge, we always recommend booking the best you can afford.  You’ll thank us later.
  • Meals and drinks are sometimes included in holiday packages like cruises, but at hotels, it’s usually only breakfast meals that’s included. 
  • Visa applications and travel insurance are two other important allowances and yet easy to forget when it comes to working out your budget. 

Knowing where you want to go is half the battle won. Summer holidays in the peak season can be awfully expensive, so you may want to consider a week or two before or after the peak season. For that matter, the same goes for the winter holidays like a snow ski holiday.   You’ll find loads of inspiration on our destinations page.

Use a reliable aggregator  (Just a big word for something that can help you a lot 🙂 )

You can research prices by comparing one provider with another, but that takes far too much time. Leave it to the professionals to do the research, like travel aggregators.

A website that collects travel deals and costs from several sources and presents them in one location is known as a travel aggregator. Out of all the results the aggregator has located, this aids users in finding the best pricing. Consumers can easily confirm that their reservations are being made at the most affordable rate.

There are many travel aggregators in the market, and we (Travel and Home) continuously put them to the test. We do that because not all travel aggregators are indeed the cheapest. Some well-known brands may claim to be cheap, but they’re not.

The only exception to using a travel aggregator is when you book through a provider that offers a price match guarantee for any identical reservations booked on their site. Like

This is the fun part where you get to plan what you’re going to see and do, and when. Making the bookings yourself gives you greater flexibility when it comes to planning your itinerary. No travel agent knows your likes and dislikes as well as you do.

Ask your hotel, or tour provider whether they provide transfers to and from the airport before you book and spend unnecessary money.

Travel Tip(s)

Don’t stress | Be flexible | Don’t schedule things too close | Allow yourself time to relax |  Allow downtime at the hotel or resort | If you get lost while doing some sightseeing – see it as an opportunity to explore and get to know the locals and their culture.
