I just finished watching a movie and it inspired me to write. The movie is about two young brothers who dream to see the world. They come from a poor family, so they always had their share of doubts – was it possible for them to become wealthy, and live a very nice life style? They often question themselves.
After all the troubles, they grew up to be successful against all odds, and the movie was ended with the two of them having a toast to living their dream on a beautiful Island resort. The movie really connected to me, probably because I was like them.
Like the two brothers, I also had the dream to travel the world, 20 years later, I am a world travel expert. Part of my dream was to travel cheaply, without spending so much money because I didn’t have money then, and now I could write a book about how to travel cheap. For this, I am truly grateful, as a sign of my gratitude, I want to share my little knowledge traveller of how to travel cheap with you, and every other person who reads this blog. It is a giving world.
Truly, cheap travel is not much of a big deal. Even if you normally fly economy, and you still want to get a discount on your plane ticket. There are a lot of ways you can achieve this goal, but people really don’t look into these various options. Instead, they go and spend a lot of money on plane tickets, and high priced luxury accommodation. I don’t blame them though, they are either not open to options, don’t know where to look, or they don’t even have the time to find discounts on their travel budget.
The first thing to do when looking for a discount is to research. Make a list of all the airlines you know, and get information on their rates. Note those rates down. Also consider finding available flights of different airlines that are going to your travel point and note them down too. Then from that information you have, sort the prices until you get the cheapest 5. From there, you can pick the one that you are comfortable with.
Another super tactic I use is to check for special discounts or travel packages. There are a whole number of discounts and promotions on different airlines out there, all you have to do is find them. You can do that by searching good old Google. Just type in the keywords ‘Travel Packages’ or ‘Travel Discounts’, and you’ll get an awful amount of data. Also search offline by visiting airline outlets, and by asking travel agents. You will never know the amount of information you can get from these two entities.
My last suggestion is something I picked up recently, and that is travel clubs. To me, this is the most secure way to travel cheap. All you have to do is join this club for a relatively minimum cost (sometimes a one time only fee) and boom! You get to travel very cheaply for the whole of your life, without having to deal with the hassles of finding cheap travel ways yourself.
All in all, if you use the information above, then you will surely start enjoying cheap travel. Make sure to do proper research, and if possible, join travel clubs. You won’t regret it. Good luck with this beautiful gift called life.
