Saving money while traveling can be challenging because we often think that we had saved a lot, and this is the time to spend on our traveling and not worry about expenses. These thoughts always pass by our mind. Some will focus, others might not.
But, let’s see what are the ways of saving money while traveling.
6 shrewdest ways of saving money while traveling
1.Test your Feet
One of the effective ways, TEST YOUR FEET. It means travel as much as you can on your feet. Not that much where you get exhausted and in no position to go back to your hotels. But still, know your stamina, how far can you go. You can explore the unexplored by the means of foot and that’s something you can cherish because very few have been there.
Most of the expenses are spend on traveling from hotel to a desired location and there you can save a lot.

2. Stay in Low budget Hotels
If possible, there’s not so much of facility. But you can regain your energy and refresh yourself. That is important what I think.
I think we go to different locations for seeing around the beauty of the city, and not to stay in a luxury Hotels. No hard feelings for the people who love to stay. I only meant to stay my thought that, we only need a sleep at night to get refreshed and that’s all.
If Yes, try this. You can also try Hostels, they are really good in terms of everything on a low cost.
3. Eat away from the tourist spots
Always Eat where there is less of tourist locations. Most often the food will be delicious and no waiting because of less crowd. Away from hustle and bustle.
Moreover, I don’t tend to eat at the places which is close to tourist spots because they rise the prices for no reason and we are left with no option apart from eating there because we thought what if we will not find any good place to eat further!
4. Shop from the local markets
We all want to take something memorable from the desired location like a show peace or something. For this, always shop from the local markets you will find everything in a reasonable price and of a high quality.
Always try to take homemade products from the host city because the people had made the product with love and efforts and it can be seen in the product also.
Things like handmade items purchased from that particular city would be memorable.
5. Carry extra food and water
Always carry something to eat and drink with you because most of the expenses are only on eating, all travelers are foodies and want to try special dishes in the new place.
That is easy to not buy anything in between, rather eat at the place when you reached.

6. Go on a Non-Peak season
This one sounds perfect; all things slightly fall into place if this could. Less crowd, more options. More options, better stay and food. Better stay and food, memorable trip.
Non- Peak seasons opens various options. Check before you go on internet about the season and always try to cover the nearest places on the first day of your trip.
This is what I think and apply for traveling.
I will hope this would have helped you in saving money while traveling.
