How to Save Money on Travel

Thursday March 6th, 2014

There are plenty of ways to save money on travel, according to an article on smh.com.au. Here are just a handful of the best:

  • Book your holiday when the Aussie dollar is high to avoid paying more overseas.
  • If breakfast isn’t included with your room, eat out at a local café as it will normally be cheaper than a hotel breakfast.
  • Avoid duty-free purchases at the airport unless you know the normal price back home of the item you are buying is more.
  • Travel in the off-peak season if you can. You’ll avoid the crowds and pay less for everything.
  • Book a package holiday. Packages are usually cheaper because travel agents buy in bulk at lower prices.
  • Get an apartment rather than a hotel room. You’ll save money on everything, including meals.
  • When shopping, avoid locals offering to guide you. Shop alone and always haggle for a bargain.
  • Make lunch the main meal of the day, as restaurants charge more for dinner.
  • Go on a cruise – This is one of the most cost-effective holidays of all, as your accommodation, meals and entertainment are all included.
