After a long and hectic work year, the most rewarding way to surprise yourself is booking a vacation. Hotels, views, tourists’ spots, great places to eat delicious traditional food and many other ideas come to our mind – but the only one to stop us is the budget. Since a vacation is never cheap, each purchase has to be done in advance if we do not want to feel our pockets being left out with nothing. However, this should not be your case, once you realize you can do something to stop it. These being said, in case you are looking forward to knowing more concerning the subject, make sure to stick with us and keep an eye onto the following lines in order to see how can you spend less while saving money on a vacation!
- Find and Get the Daily Deals in Advance
Did you know that purchasing some great offers in advance can help you organize better and, on the other hand, gives you the possibility to save a lot of money that you can use on different other stuff? Well, this is the number one thing you should do in order to put your money aside – and spend as little as possible on other stuff. For instance, look for deals (and discounts) to certain traditional restaurants and make reservations. If you book your place with as much as two weeks in advance, at most of the places you get 30% off from the total checkout. What about that?
- Download Great Apps for Knowing where the Cheap Hot Spots Are
Are you the type of person who is always looking for discounts? If so, that makes two of us. Happy Hour Finder is one of the greatest apps that you can use in order to find the happy hours – and the places to go and have a meal (or a drink) at a decent price. By this way, you can easily take advantage of the spots near you and have a great time while spending less!
- Use Public Transportation
While abroad, taxis might not be the very best choice you could get in a lifetime. Basically, it runs as if you do not know nothing into the town, so the next best thing you can do is just get a cab. Well, believe it or not, taxis are pretty expensive – putting in comparison with the other means of public transportation. If you aim to spend less and save some great money while on vacay, make sure to tick that off from your list and instead, use the public transportation – as soon as possible.
- Take With You the Student ID
Do you want to make sure that you get all the discounts from anywhere, every time? If so, remember to take with you the student ID – basically, it provides you with nice money that you can use on some different places. The discounts vary, from 5% to 5 euros (or more) at entrances. It is up to you where you can use it, but remember – once you see the sign, the money is back yours.
- Leave the Souvenirs
Who said that it is necessary to come back from your trip with loads of souvenirs? Unbelievably, your family and friends might as well be more interested in something great to eat from there, instead of wasting all of your money on the souvenirs. By this way, you can (for sure) save a lot of money from the pocket! On the other hand, just think how useful some things can be (or not). Souvenirs are the kind of things that are used only once, and then forgotten – or left aside, thrown in the trash. As for you and the purpose you bear in mind, the best thing to do is to leave the souvenirs for other people.
- Stop Eating Out
We all know that a vacation means pretty much relaxation, still if you aim to put some money aside while on vacay, make sure to stop eating out. By this way, you save a lot of your financial resources, due to the fact that money spent on fancy restaurants will be saved. On the other hand, an important aspect you should be aware of regards the fact that you may be eating bad things while in the center of the town – since most of the ingredients are not at all good.
- Enjoy Your Holiday
Regardless of the pluses and minuses, your holiday is all that matters – and once you put everything on the table, I am sure that you will love your holiday. So, what are you still waiting for? Start to enjoy your holiday but do not forget about your resources – and how to deal with them on a short period of time.
