Here I will share some tips and resources that will help you to save money.
Save & Set A Goal
Save money the way that it works best for you, you don’t have to save $200 every week if you can’t, you can set a goal. For example if saving $20 a week it works for you, go for it. Do not hesitate, is better to have some saving than not to have them. Another thing that might help you it’s to have a vision of how much you want to spend in that trip or what type of trip you want to do. Once you’ve have answered those questions, you can determined how much money you can save every day, week, month or year.
Credit Cards– I know using credit cards it might sound counterintuitive but credit cards aren’t that bad if you use them wisely. When you use it wisely, it means that you have to know your crdit card, you have to find the answer to these questions: What does it offer you? How does it benefit me? Do I get points every time I make a purchase? What are the policies? Some credit card actually give you points every time you buy something or make a purchase and those points can get you a free flight, hotel, free food and much more. Get to know your credit card, choose or apply for the one that will benefits you.
If your budget is tight you can do some research on the cheapest dates to visit that dream destination. You can use some resources like: Google Flights, Expedia, Momondo and others… Get and be ready to find those flexible alternatives. If you want to save more money I recommend you to take a trip as a local in that country, get to know the locals and find out what they do, eat or where they stay. It might seem difficult but it’s not. You just have to learn how to live there as local for few weeks or the time that you are staying, plus you will create a memory that won’t never forget.
