Does lack of money or not having that much money bars you from travelling? Well, you don't need to compromise on the amount of fun you can have. For instance, you can plan a four-day trip to Manali and managed it at just Rs 5,000, which includes your round trip expenses, all meals, and the hotel charges.
Wondering how this can happen? Instead of getting into the details of that particular trip, let me tell you how you can manage to do it every single time you travel. You might not have realised this, but you are probably spending a lot more on travel than it's actually required. And here I am, to help you change that. After all, money saved on travel would simply mean more travel.
Be Wise In Choosing Your Destination
This is very important. It is a first step towards a successful budget trip. Choose a destination where most people won't be travelling to at that point of time, meaning to say, an off season destination. This may sound simple and easy, but believe me it's not that simple. I am not asking you to pick a place where the weather is not suitable enough. After all, you travel to feel good. Pick a place where the off season is on, and yet, the season is just about to start. For example, Darjeeling and Gangtok are great to visit in September, because the season starts in October. The weather is just fine during this time, with just a few hiccups in the form of occasional rain, but the main tourist spots are not crowded and you can thus enjoy the true beauty of the place. Try this, and believe me you will be happy- I can bet on it.
How To Travel- Mode Of Transport
Here again, I am not asking you to compromise on your comfort and safety while travelling. But, do not choose the mode of transport you like the most, but don't spend on that extra comfort. For example, choose for a cheaper airline even though you might have lesser leg space, or choose to go for the AC deluxe bus instead of the Volvo bus--you will take an hour or two extra to reach your destination....
