1) For most of my travels I book flight tickets way earlier nearly 2-3 months before.
2) I read most of Tripoto blogs to find Best locations to visit in particular city so that i can save my time and ultimately the money on transport.
3) Before one month of travel i search for hotels and start bookings them by comparing prices on various sites that really helps me to save money.
4) After booking for Flight and hotels I search for modes of transport, may it be public transport or shared options, i make list of them so I can use that on actual day.
5) And the most important thing which helps me to save money is I cook my own breakfast may it be simple Maggie or simple sandwich and second one is I eat lot of street and local food.
