Ballin' on a Budget

Let’s keep it real. Most of us aren't bringing in the big bucks. And as much as we love seeing the world, trying to plan that dream vacation can burn holes in our pockets. While some people are fortunate enough to fly first class and stay at pricey hotels and luxury resorts, many of us travel on budgets to get the biggest bang out of our little bucks. Ballin’ on a budget isn’t impossible and doesn’t require a compromise in comfort, safety or fun. Check out three ways you can take the trip of your dreams and stay under budget.

 

Take Note of Peak vs. Off Peak Travel Times

Sure it sounds great to travel to Europe in July, but unless you’ve got about $1000 for the flight alone, budget travel in the summer is a going to be a tough one. Try traveling during off peak seasons like fall and winter. The weather might not be warm enough to get your tan on, but it may still be just as lovely…just like the prices. Keep your eye on sites like Airfarewatchdog, Kayak Buzz and Skyscanner so you don’t miss deals when they pop up.

Packages Are Your Friend

Guest Post: “I wish I could travel like you do.” (You can)

Maneesh Sethi was kind enough to write up a guest post for us on striking off internationally and doing the digital nomad thing.

Every day, someone says to me: “I wish I could travel like you do.”

And every time I respond: “You can too.”

You see, I’ve been traveling for the last three years as a digital nomad, through Asia, South America, Europe. I move to a new city, learn a new language, and do a cool project. I built an online business that is completely outsourced, so now I can work as many---or as few----hours/week as I want.
