Budget is the most important thing when you are traveling internationally because you cannot spend endless amount of money even though you are tempted to. Here are some great tips for traveling on a budget.
Traveling Tips for The Budget Traveler:
o Divide your luggage into most essential and least essential items before you pack to avoid excess baggage because this is where unnecessary expenditure starts.
o You will need enough space in your luggage while coming back after shopping. Make this place before you leave on your trip.
o After shopping sort out the items you bought from the most expensive to the least expensive.
o The best way to minimize is by carrying fewer clothes. Take sensible shoes, jeans and tee shirts and lot of soap powder. Other ways to minimize are doubling your clothes like using the swim shorts as sleep wear.
o Pack your maps and GPS into your luggage and make an itinerary of which places you would like to visit first. Budgeting becomes very easy if you do this.
o Take some plastic bags for dirty laundry and keep them separate in your luggage so that you always have a ready stock of clothes available for your trip.
o While shopping, do not buy anything the moment you see it. Choose the item you would like to purchase first and take a walk around the store and think if you absolutely need it and want it. Only after that purchase. This technique helps to cut down the instinct to buy the moment you see it.
