Carrying your student card could help you reduce your spending while abroad.

Think about all the museums, attractions or even transportation you could save on.

Use public transport


A taxi or renting a car can be an attractive idea, but if you wish for a stress-free, budget travel holiday, then resorting to public transport might be a wiser idea.

Many countries offer a number of options ranging from the bus system to a metro or even train lines. 

Public Transport


Opt for cheaper destinations


Some destinations are just cheaper than others, but this doesn’t necessarily mean they offer anything less than others.

Doing your homework well could surprise you with the options to visit some countries which were not on your list previously. Try it out!


Think about offseason travel


Everyone likes a nice summer destination in the middle of August, but this is one of the busiest periods of the year.

With higher demand, come higher prices, therefore opting for low-season travel might do the trick…

If beaches are what you’re looking for then southern Mediterranean destinations could start offering great options in May or June.



Choose budget-friendly accommodations


Just like our previous tip, the place where you’d be living in should also be thought of thoroughly.

Choosing an accommodation which is affordable, close to the places you want to visit, and offers the amenities you wish for can be a long tedious process but this might also prove to be important in an effort to keep your spending to a low.
