Travel Resource : I found a nice resource for traveling on a budget. Check out this budget travel guide here.Click through here to check out the guide.
If you want to travel, whether it is for a vacation or an adventure, it is still possible to make that trip even if you are on a tight budget. Whatever your age, physical abilities or your destination choice, there is a selection of budget travel guides that can be accessed, free, online – so you do not even have to spend any money to do your research.
The biggest group of travelers on a budget is probably students in the 18-25 age group who tend to be fairly physically fit, want to travel to those less explored corners of the globe and don’t mind backpacking and ‘roughing it’ a bit!
However, for older budget tourists like myself, there are still many ways to save money on short vacations or longer sojourns. It is certainly a very nice feeling to have really done your homework, and gotten the very best deals. Personally, nothing beats that feeling of satisfaction that comes from knowing that you have paid a great deal less for the same trip than the person sitting right next to you!
If you want inspiration on the type of vacation or destination you could enjoy at a bargain price, a great place to start is Frommer’s Guide (http://www.frommers.com/). Whether you want to immerse yourself in the culture of another Country, enjoy a beach vacation or winter sports, with a bit of know-how to find those bargain air fares and inexpensive places to stay you can save yourself hundreds of dollars and still have a fantastic time.
Research money-saving tips in budget travel guides online for your trip too – for example, in the US, waiters are not well paid and it is customary to give a tip of around 15% as a gratuity. However, elsewhere in the world, particularly in Europe, 10% is considered more the norm and quite generous, in fact. Knowing this kind of information will prevent you from spending more than you need.
