Research is important in many different aspects of life, and this is no less true for holiday planning. That’s why this is my first tip.
For budget travel, it would be ideal to start with a location that you know to be inexpensive. For example, my first holiday is to be Budapest. I’d heard from word of mouth that Budapest is a cheap place to holiday in. Hearing that, I did my research into the country and the costs associated with it. I looked into airfare and accommodation, as they were bigger expenditures. Having seen the prices, I went away to think about it. Make sure all your research is complete before booking a holiday. I then researched the food and drink, and their prices. Having seen these and the low prices, I made the decision to book the holiday. After that, I then looked into activities that can be done there and their prices, and just the thought of the experiences are swimming through my head, causing great excitement.
Researching is an asset in two ways: it vastly reduces costs, and it helps build your excitement ahead of your holiday.
Stay tuned for my next tip!
