1. Use a small backpack/suitcase.
Try using smaller backpacks. Then it will be lighter weight and will help to avoid carrying more unnecessary items. When the backpack/suitcase gets more extensive, you will take a lot of unnecessary things, which will give you a lot of trouble later.
2. Learn the primary language in the local language of your destination
You can learn some primary languages wherever you want to go. It will be of great benefit. Such as ‘Where is the hotel?’, ‘Where is the restaurant’ ‘Where is the bathroom?’ Little things like ‘thank you, ‘goodbye’, ‘how are you will help you a lot. It will also increase the scope of your knowledge.
3. Be patient
Be patient in traveling like everything in life—no need to rush. You will reach where you are going at the appointed time. Travel is a journey, not a destination. Keep your head cool when in danger. Don’t lose patience. Deal with all in the cold head
4. Don’t plan extra trips.
You are going on a trip to enjoy yourself. So there is no need to plan so much. Enjoy being stress-free. Schedule two or three things and let the day fill the rest independently. It’s less stressful, and the day is just one of the best ways to travel.
5. Be frugal – but not cheap.
Try to spend as little as possible on travel. It is not right to spend money on food or shopping. Don’t be too stingy again. Spend as much as you need. But don’t miss the great experiences or walk 10 miles to save a few dollars.
Take lots of photos, and you’ll want to look back on those nights you can’t remember and those who have made them memorable.
6. Avoid taxis.
An excellent way to save money is to avoid taxis. It costs a lot. Try walking or using public buses or trains. If you have enough capital, never take a cab!
7. When you go out, carry what you need.
Limit the amount of cash and cards you carry when leaving the hotel or where you are staying. So in case of any mishap, never lose all your money or cards. Never take more than one credit card or ATM card.
8. Make extra copies of your passport and essential documents.
Don’t forget to e-mail a copy to yourself. You never know when you’ll have some documentation with you, and you won’t want to carry your original. In addition, a copy of your police report will come in handy if your passport is stolen.
9. Always visit the local tourism office.
They know everything about the city. They can point you to free activities, special events during your stay, and everything in between. They even offer discounts on attractions and transportation. Their job is to help you experience a better destination. It’s amazing how many travelers avoid it when traveling, but, as an intelligent traveler, you know how to use this resource! This is probably one of the least used travel tips in the world. Use the Tour Board! Save money!
10. Ask the hostel staff for information – even when you are not there.
Hostel staff deals with budget travelers all day, every day. They know where to go for cheap food and attractions. They also tend to be local, so they know the city very well. Ask them for all kinds of information. Even if you’re not in one, just pop in and ask for help. They will usually give it.
