Use Public Transport

Public transport are always the best option to save money. Instead of spending on taxis or cab, go for options like trains, ferries and buses. These are much more affordable options and will provide you with great experience of meeting new people.

Travel Light

Avoid carrying bulky luggage as it will not only provide you with hassle-free travelling experience. Also you need not pay extra dollars for your luggage weight on your way back home. Many people carry bulky luggage which restricts them from shopping due to the fear of additional luggage cost at airport.

Stay On a Couch

Sleeping in another person’s home seems strange but it’s something which is gaining popularity. couchsurfing.org (100,000 cities worldwide), and hospitalityclub.org (Western Europe) are all nice options for free accommodation. However, you need to verify their details before your stay.

Rent and Apartment instead of hotels

Forget hotels and switch to apartments this time when you travel. Apartments are not only cheaper but also offer you multiple benefits like the freedom to cook your own meals, free Wifi and also you may get a bike to travel. Isn’t that great. Try airbnb.com or wimdu.com, where you can find access to many private homes.

Shop from Duty Free Shops

Instead of those expensive shopping areas, try to shop from duty free shops, where you can find goods at a much cheaper rate.

Take care of your Roaming Expenses

While you travel abroad, you need to keep a check on your phone usage as you may land up paying hefty roaming bills. Try taking a local sim card of the visiting country. You can also use apps like Ajura, which will allow you to receive calls on your home country mobile number as well as save on your roaming expenses.
