10 Ways to Save Money on Vacations

We all love to travel, but it is too expensive for the majority of us to afford. How about a great adventure at your favorite destination within a controlled budget? Interested? Of course you are!

Here are a few tricks to save money while enjoying your vacations to steer clear of regrets on your return.

1.     Research before Planning Your Travel

You can get cheaper tickets for your travel. Book your tickets at least a month before. Also, be flexible with dates. Wednesdays and Thursdays are when you can typically get the cheapest tickets. Go for it!

2.     Keep Yourself Updated

You have a smart phone. You only have to use it smartly. Social Media is best place to keep you updated about the current dynamics of travel plans. People are saving a lot, why can’t you?

3.     Buy Package Deals

Only a fool would overlook those wonderfully low cost deals that every company in every country is offering. Come on people, all it takes is some research!

10 Ways to Save Money on Vacations

4.     Manage Your Time

You can escape a lot of expenses if you properly time your entire trip. Days can be dedicated to fun moments and nights can be spent travelling to newer destinations. This will cut the accommodation cost.  Not a bad move I guess.

5.     Select the Destinations Efficiently

If you are travelling to a place that currency value is a lot more than yours, you my friend, are in a fix. Go for the place that will cater to your money constraints. Ultimately, it is the company and experiences that matter, not the place.

6.     Come off Your High Horse

When in Rome, do as the Romans do. Staying at your horse would not help you much. Try mingling with the locals and they will guide you to possibly the cheapest restaurant with the tastiest food in the vicinity. The locals can also assist you in gathering information about the public transport, a very low cost way to commute.

7.     Avoid Getting Useless Souvenirs

Yes family and friends might be difficult to handle, however, there is no point in buying key chains, trophies or handmade pillow cushions. A photo shoot will do though. Spend smartly on the experiences. They are what you will remember in the long run.

8.     Say No Toiletries

Have faith that you would not be spending night on a roadside tavern or bathing under the sun. Hotel, no matter how cheap, do provide you with shampoo and soap. Give them some credit.

9.      Invest On Experiences

People would not remember dining at a posh restaurant following all the rules of fine dining. If you are lucky enough to travel, don’t hesitate to experience life to its fullest. Para gliding, scuba diving, jet skiing, under water diving, hiking, and etc. etc. are some of the adventures you can boost about later with your grandchildren.

10.    Try the Free Stuff

You can do some amazingly crazy stuff while on vacations that will truly fulfill your emotional and psychological needs, without spending a dime. No one has to pay for a night under a starry sky. Believe me, you would not regret this one.

Things to pack when travelling to Europe in the summer

Traveling is a dream for many people. But when this dream comes true and you finally get a chance to pack your bags and fly, it is extremely necessary to organize a clear plan for the trip beforehand. To enjoy a trip to the amazing continent of Europe, it is important to be aware of and knowledgeable about the type of luggage suitable for your stay.

Ideally, make a list of the items to be packed so that you have to face no issue while traveling. Some of the items necessary for a trip to Europe in the summers are:

Clothing

When it comes to clothing, the best suited for summers in Europe are:

  • Pairs of jeans and Capri pants – Capri pants are also in fashion and very suitable for the summer weather.
  • Shorts – Shorts are increasingly popular in Europe and wearing them is ‘in’. So don’t forget to pack some with you!
  • T-shirts and polo’s – T-shirts that are vibrant in color, are ideal for sports and casual use.
  • Swimsuit – For the love of waters and beaches in Europe!
  • Good quality undergarments

Backpacks

Backpacks are the easiest way to carry a lot of items securely. They are very important for day long picnics and for fishing, hiking, and climbing excursions to various famous regions in Europe. Having bags, that can be carried on the back makes traveling quite convenient.

Compression sacks

They are generally heavy duty plastic bags, usually with a zipper for the purpose of loading and unloading. They help in compressing heavy clothing such as jackets and sweaters. All your heavier apparel can be placed in the compressor which is then sealed and put in the backpack – thus occupying a smaller space.

Packing cubes

Packing cubes are essential for people who consider themselves pros at packing. These help in dividing and organizing the stuff you plan to carry with you. They are also available in all shapes and sizes, and are suitable for arranging items from clothing to nail polishes!

Footwear

The ideal footwear for this trip includes:

  • Socks (cotton made)
  • Comfortable walking shoes
  • Easy to wear joggers
  • Waterproof shoes for traveling to especially snowy/rainy areas in Europe.

Accessories

Some of the required accessories for this trip are:

  1. Earplugs (if you plan to take multiple flights and road trips)
  2. Sunglasses (a must for summers!)
  3. Face towels
  4. Luggage locks: They are an utter necessity these days to avoid theft.
  5. Water bottle
  6. Wallet
  7. Earphones with a music player
  8. Books/reading material
  9. Umbrella
  10. Camera with sufficient storage for pictures
  11. Toiletry kit (including toothpaste, face wash, hand wash, soap)
  12. Cosmetics and items for grooming and personal hygiene
  13. Medicines in case of emergency
  14. Smartphone and laptop
  15. Plug adapter (the sockets in UK and Europe are different from other countries, hence the need for plug adapters).

These are some of the many items required for a convenient travel to Europe. For a satisfying trip abroad, you need to be sure of the minute details and plan accordingly.
