Check out these backpacking trips we have compiled and realize that there really is no excuse to not travel, not even money!

Solo or group?

The best way to save on money when traveling is by going with a group. There are so many backpackers joining group tours to so many destinations and the prices are proven to be cheaper. These tours gather travelers—friends or strangers—so even if you’re alone, you can still join.

Promo flights

Being dedicated to backpacking also comes with sleepless nights trying to score airline promos or booking so many months in advance. There is certainly no way you can spend less if you book regular-priced tickets and the trip is just a month away or less—it’s literally impossible. Whether you like it or not, budget traveling comes with deep commitment.

Booking rooms

If you really want to spend less on your trip, ditch five-star hotels and introduce yourself to hostels and guesthouses. If you intently search your way around, you’ll find great lodging with cheap rates. You can check out hotel booking sites to ease your hunt.

Commute or rent-a-car?

There is no right or wrong answer regarding what transportation you would like to utilize when touring a place. Commuting and car-renting have their own pros and cons. Commuting is a good option for solo or couple travelers, while car-renting is better for those traveling with a group. Another option to save is to do a lot of walking.

The best things in life are still free!

If you really want to lower your expenses when you travel, exhaust all the spots without entrance fees. Many of the world’s famous tourist attractions are free for public viewing—including Singapore’s Merlion Park, Paris’ Eiffel Tower, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, and London’s Big Ben.

Accept that you can’t see everything in one trip

Unless you are staying for a long time in a certain place (which would require a higher budget), you have to trim down your itinerary to only the important spots—either the touristy ones or attractions that appeal most to your inner wants. Besides, do you really want to overload your trip and end up seeing so little of everything?
