1. Discounted airline
Save money while travelling is not an easy job. The first tip- find low-cost flights, there are lots of offers for travel sites for cheap flights. You can also directly call the airline for a cheap flight.
The best way to buy a flight ticket is, book the flight ticket at least two months before. Your prior planning can save your pocket.
2. Find a taxi service like uber, ola etc
Whenever you get those cab services, try to avail this. It’s much less than booking a car on the spot for a full day of sightseeing.
In all the metro city’s in India, this service is available now, and we all have smartphones, so why don’t we use it. It’s a tested method, and my travel journey cost is almost half with this trick.

3. Book lowest price hotel deals
The best way to save money on hotels is to book the lowest price hotel deals (online or offline) but check it should have a generator, water purifier, and room service. Just imagine how much we spent on the mineral water in the tourist spot.
Let’s say a person drinks 3-litre water per day; that means your 60 rupees gone for this. It sounds funny, but it’s an effect on your budget. You can also find cheap hotels online.
4. Get meal from outside
The hotel food menu is delicious, and it can be served in your room also, but try not to eat food from what hotel you are staying at, try to eat from the outside.
It will drastically reduce your food cost. Ordering at the hotel where you stay, they charge a lot. Just think about it. It’s the easiest way to save money for a trip to me.
5. Book the hotel first
When you fix a place to go on vacation, you should book the hotel first. Because after reaching the destination then searching for hotels with luggage and kids, it’s a very hectic job.
At that moment it’s tough to find any good deal on a hotel and not have the option to compare other discounts, and most of the time you have to pay more.
6. Shopping tourism
My holiday shopping idea is, go shopping at register shops like Govt shops, Register shop. You will get quality products from there.
On footpath or the unregistered shop, I avoid it. They may sell the items at a cheap cost, but I always look for the quality.
7. Travel in the off time
Let’s say you have a low budget, but you and your family need a quick change for an immediate basis. What will you do? Your only option is to save money while travelling.
Well, you can find those places which are not have pick season at that time. I prefer these tricks. That time hotel rents are low, and you can bargain at the time of cab booking, shopping, hotel booking, and most important all visiting spots are low crowded.
You can use your camera for a long time, and you defiantly get the perfect snap. So try this trick for your vacation.
8. Include breakfast while booking a room
Many hotels offer breakfast without extra cost. So don’t miss this offer. It’s good money-saving tips.
9. Book Holiday home or Homestay
The room rent for Holiday Homes is less than the hotels. So try to stay at the company guest house or holiday homes. Nowadays, homestay in India is very popular.
10. Carry your own travel cooking equipment
It’s very cost-effective. These will save your snack’s cost. Carry your cooking appliances (small size) like tharmas (store hot or cold tea or coffee or water), eclectic kettle, or hitting cup (for making noodles, tea, coffee, boiling egg, etc.).
Get those cooking appliances that are rechargeable or turns on through electricity.
11. Hungry?? don’t buy food at that time
These tips are for all travellers. Carry your dry fruits, chocolate bar, snacks, drinks, and water, etc. Because of hunger, these have to buy at high prices on a train or any other tourist places.
12. Use public transport
Always try to use public transport first. Let’s imagine; you are going to Darjeeling. You book a car from NJP or Siliguri. It charges 2500 rs to 3000 rs, which is normal.
But if you go for sharing basis in the same type of cars, it charges 150 rupees (You can book some more seats, for your comfort). Just think of It. It is very cost-effective, and it’s ranked first on money-saving tips on travelling.
13. Note all the expense
It is another excellent tip for your travel money-saving plan. If you note down all the expenditures, Then you can understand where to spend and how much. And it is also helpful for your next trip.
14. Avoid Deluxe rooms
An Expensive room is not required for me. Because I use the room for rest or sleeping purposes only. So it will be pretty comfortable to get a standard room.
15. Talk to the local people
Meet locals people while travelling; they are the main information resources for you. They could use exactly where better options for you. For example, we can find the low car rental, where good food is available at low prices, details about the visiting spot, etc.
16. Travel with a group
Group travelling is the foremost essential tip for money-saving while travelling. It cut down your car rentals. It’s also cost-effective in time of hotel room booking.
You can also take a dormitory room at a cheap cost and save money while travelling. There are many travel groups for solo travellers they are offering group travel, just search on the internet.
17. Grab the offer
If you plan for travel, check all the offers on the internet or offline and Book it from where you get the best budget travel deals. You can check your email notification that which company gave you the best offer on travel.
18. Compare with other deals
Whenever you plan or think about the travel, do compare with others. For example, which hotels give you an extra discount, which package tour is more appropriate, and always speak with the driver at the time of the car booking, ignore the third party agent. They always take an agent percentage from the driver.
19. Don’t book a car for a long
We should not book cars for 2- 3 days or longer at the same time. Because After that you don’t have any other good choices.
And in case of the night staying of the driver, they will include the extra charges. In any tourist location, car facilities are easily available.

If possible, share your vehicle with others. It is beneficial for money saving on travel. When you share your journey with others, your transport cost will be behalf. So think about the trick and save money while travelling.
