Start saving long before your travel
Every person has a desire of travelling and exploring new places around the globe but to fulfil this desire you need a handsome amount of money. This couple has advised that if you are planning a long journey start saving now as much as you can. For them, it is not about living cheaply as possible but it is about living large as possible and this can only be achieved by saving money.
Avoid Pre-hotel Bookings
It is an assumption that booking hotels before traveling is good but if you are deciding to stay for a longer time period then this is not the best option for you. To save money, book an accommodation that is cheap in price for only one or two days and after reaching your destination look for a guest house and guess what? you can even find a free guest house to live in because people love and respect their cultural values so much that they try to be best hosts.
Longer Stays Help in Money Savings
According to Anne and Mike, it hardly takes one week to get the familiarity with the place. So the more you will adapt yourself to the surroundings the more you will be able to live without spending much of your money.
Intriguing much? then what are you waiting for? Plan your trip and visit all the countries/places that you have always wanted to explore.
