- Don't check any luggage in. This will save you at least $25 on most domestic carriers.
- Use public transportation whenever possible. Taxis can cost you an arm and a leg. Public transport is usually quite affordable. I saved 54 pounds because I took the Picadilly train in London instead of taking a shuttle.
- Don't eat near big tourist attractions. You'll save a lot of cash if you find where the locals eat. To save even more money on food, purchase prepared food from a grocery store for some meals.
- Don't restrict yourself to one mode of transportation to get from point A to point B. Be open minded. I traveled around Europe on train a lot, but I saved a lot of money on taking buses and planes on certain segments.
- Don't spend a ton of money on accommodations. Consider staying in hostels or book a room on Airbnb. I've even stayed at a hostel converted from a palace. Booking "secret" hotels on Priceline and Hotwire can also make your pocketbook happy.
If you do quick Google search, it may seem like you have to be some travel guru so save money while traveling. "Sign up for these credit cards." "Join these loyalty programs." "Book your flights on these days." Blah, blah, blah. Saving money may be more simple than you think. Here's a list of five ways to easily cut your costs down.
