When to skimp, when to spend: Budget travel tips
MANILA, Philippines – There's a popular quote that goes: “take vacations, go to as many places you can. You can always make money; you can't always make memories."
Traveling is one of the most enriching and rewarding things anyone can do. Going out of town or visiting another country exposes you to different landscapes, cuisines, and practices. It provides you with a much-needed breather from your everyday routine.
But in order to make the most out of it, keep in mind that there’s no need to go all out when it comes to expenses.
You might think sticking to a realistic budget is tough since you need to consider airfare, accommodations, pocket money, and miscellaneous fees, but it’s actually really simple and doable.
Below, we’ve divided all the possible expenditures for your next trip into two categories: save or indulge. While on vacation, a good mantra to live by is to skimp on items and transportation, then spend on experiences and the destination.
By doing this, you’ll be able to keep your budget low while still enjoying everything a brand-new destination has to offer. – Rappler.com
