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 minds. Some will focus, others might not.
But, let’s see what are the best ways to save 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 to 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 spent on traveling from the hotel to the desired location and there you can save a lot.

2. Stay in Low budget Hotels
If possible, there’s not so much of the 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 the beauty of the city, and not to stay in luxury hotels. No hard feelings for the people who love to stay. I only meant to stay my thought that, we only need 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 at a low cost.
3. Eat away from the tourist spots
Always Eat where there are fewer tourist locations. Most often the food will be delicious and no waiting because of fewer crowds. Away from hustle and bustle.
Moreover, I don’t tend to eat at the places which are close to tourist spots because they raise 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 showpiece or something. For this, always shop from the local markets you will find everything at a reasonable price and of high quality.
Always try to make homemade products from the host city because the people had made the product with love and effort 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.
I sometimes read some money-saving quotes, you can also read here.
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 open various options. Check before you go on the 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 travel.

I am someone who wants to in the very near future travel without the big budget. All these tips will definitely come in handy. Great advice.
oh yes, definately it will somehow help everyone.
Fantastic points. I also recommend folks network with people in the host country and couch surf with them. I did that in Alaska and it was amazing. I compensated my stay by buying food or cooking a meal the night I stayed there. Lots of fun to be had when budget traveling. ✌️ Jess || https://www.learningfromstrangers.com
I surely agree with the point you have mentioned. It would be best thing one could do to save and earn while traveling. I am glad you have shared your Alaska experience with me.

Super useful advice! I agree about the walking tip, even though public transport can seem cheap even if you save that few euros it makes a massive difference. You also see more of a place if you’re on foot, I’ve found some of the best little streets just by walking around a place.
Hey Megan ,
Testing the feet is personally my favorite to save some bugs, it checks the stamina although. Passing from the streets is one such example which you cant see if going from public transport. These little little things makes the memories.
Great post with some really useful tips! I completely agree there is far too much money spent on travel and eating in tourist places or drinks!
Hey Sophie ,
I completely agree to your point that maximum amount is spend on traveling and eating , so its good to take atmost care as you can according to ones willingness.
I recently booked a trip around three cities in Europe for later this month (on a really tight budget) and I am so excited to do some exploring on foot and find places off the tourist trail for the best food in the cities. I love getting lost in a local market and if i have the chance, being able to cook local food in my apartment/air bnb.
Hey Ellie ,
That’s what i am talking about. Its great that you have explained using your Europe trip. We have so much to see by foot , and yes getting lost in the local market and cooking food is like completely involving ourself into the culture of that city or country. And that’s Awesome.
Thank you for your feedback
Great post! I often try and follow these tips! You see more if you’re walking anyway, and budget hotels are fine because if you’re seeing places all you’re going to be doing in the hotel is sleeping like you say! Awesome post x
Hey Miche ,
Yeah , i always think that when we are going to another city/country all we require a hotel/hostel to be freshen up and we are not going to stay for a week there. Just a nights sleep is enough to refreshe ourself and in the morning . Ready to Go !!
Thank you for sharing your words here.
Thank you for your great advice x I will keep that in mind the next time I go somewhere on holiday 🙂

Very useful! Yes, travelling in non-peak season may save you lots of money!
Thank you. Yes all the points will definately relate.
Completely agree! Going during non-peak seasons not just saves money but feels calm?
Thank you for the Agreeness. Calm feeling is something which everyone goes to find everywhere.
I walk everywhere when I’m travelling, or try to figure out local transit instead of just getting a taxi which is the way option. Great tips here
Hey Emma ,
Exploring by foot is a far way better than taking a taxi. You can see many things , which ultimately you miss while taking a taxi.
All excellent tips. Never have used a hostel but I like to go cheap on accommodation. For me, I just want a bed to sleep on before I’m out exploring the next day.
Hey Andrew ,
Excellent you got me. I also do that, exploring the whole day and just came for rest at the night. I have explained, i think that we go to hotels /hostels to be refreshed not to spend the day exploring the whole room.
Thank you for your feedback!!

Great tips! I went to Paris last year in non peak season and it was so much cheaper – we also avoided very touristy areas for food.
Thank you for sharing your Paris journey with me. Going on non – peak season seems so much relaxing though!
Some great points here, travelling can be really expensive, but some of these tips are really helpful for keeping things cheap!!
Hey lianne ,

Hey Savannah ,
Saving money is itself a challenge , thank you for your valuable comment !
confirmation if a lot I already do. Planning on checking out Greece in December. #whynot
Hey polley ,
That’s great if you already follow a lot of tips!
Totally agree! I try to do most of these when I am away. When you’re traveling you don’t want to waste money on silly things.
Those tips are usefull 🙂 thanks 🙂

I think the next time I travel, I’m going to backpack it for sure. I hate luggage and I was thinking that is would also be more cost efficient since airlines are charging to check in baggage. Great list of frugal travel ideas.
Thank you so much Alice , comments like these makes me motivated .
Great tips! We always try to walk places where we can!
Thank you !

No problem !

Good tips. Sometimes I fail with the cheap hotels (I really like my luxury) but I love to travel off peak and eat off the tourists paths. Plus the food is often more authentic there. Thanks for sharing
Hey , glad that you liked. Thanks for reading.
When I went traveling (whatever little bit I did) we tried tasting the local delicacies. A lot of people went inin sear of the cusinie that they were familiar with which was always much more expensive. Non peak season for sure!!!!
