3 Tips On How To Travel Once A Year When On A BudgetWednesday, November 30, 2016
Avoiding peak seasons or weekends are at times hard to do. Maybe because of your timetable at uni, children's day off or work. It might be so that the weekends or the holiday seasons are the ones that fit your schedule the best. During those times, the prices for tickets are most likely high. If there is any chance you can get some few days off from work or if you've found a gap from your busy schedule from you uni, I would recommend to book a flight during weekdays or outside the holiday season. Prices can be 50% cheaper or even less when you book outside those peak periods.
Also, booking in advance will save you some cash on flight tickets as well. For example I'm traveling to Ghana this month and I purchased the tickets already in October. I got them for a good deal even though I'll be there during the Christmas season. My young sister will be traveling to Ghana this month as well but because she booked it two weeks ago, she paid about 250 euros more than I had for almost the same traveling period. Say you really want to visit Portugal for example, start browsing around the websites of the budget airlines. Determine which days or months are the cheapest and see if you can work your schedule around it.
These tips have helped me a lot to travel to a few cities in Europe once a year without spending tons and tons of money😉. I hope these tips were useful for you too. Are you planning to go somewhere in 2017? Which countries are currently on your bucket list?
