- Choosing accommodations in a foreign land can spell the difference between spending a couple of hundred dollars, or a few thousand. Hostels, used apartments and online hospitality exchanges such as Couchsurfing are less expensive alternatives to hotels.
- When tourists take only the things they need, they travel light. This is secondary to traveling cheap since having gear which weighs less decreases the chances of being slapped with extra charges at the airport. One bag per person is the ideal ratio.
- As with the choice of accommodations, dining places should be considered with utmost caution. Travelers should only eat at posh and famous restaurants if the gustatory experience is the entire point of the trip. If it isn’t, every city in the world has hundreds of places with great cooking for very affordable prices.
