It will help you to save more money that you can then spend on your next mind-blowing adventure.

Traveling during the day
Nighttime is sleep time. But what if you can sleep and save money on a night of accommodation? Taking a night train or bus can get you where you need to go and save your budget.

. Forgetting the 6-block rule
Food is generally double the price and half as good within 6 blocks of a major tourist spot. Walk away from crowded tourist attractions to enjoy something more authentic at a cheaper price. Local outdoor street food markets are always a better option.

Ignoring ride-sharing
You’ve probably heard about house-sharing services like Couchsurfing, but there are also ride-sharing apps like BlaBlaCar, which will help you find locals and other travelers that are going to the same destination as you.

Booking in advance
Early booking will probably work if you have a strict schedule you need to stick to. Otherwise, it makes sense to avoid booking in advance as much as possible. It will let you stay in a place you like for longer and will probably get you a discount from the hotel. And if you really want to leave the place earlier, you won’t have to pay a fee to change tickets.
