Cars, fares, and travel offers have become more cheaper and more accessible today, and for that reason a lot of people have already been taking advantage of it, especially millenials, wherein they would prefer experience over material things. Because of this, people have been travelling more often than before, but of course we still want to save some money, even just a little amount. Here are some ways as to how you could travel cheaper and still enjoy your adventures.
Only bring enough
You have to properly allocate your budget whenever you go on a vacation, especially when all by yourself! Familiarize yourself with the things that you could do around the vicinity and as to how much it will cost you on the activity in order for you to only bring sufficient amount of money in your trip. But you should still make sure that you bring an extra amount of cash or have some in your bank account in cases of sudden spending, yet you should still make considerations as whether you should spend on it or not.
The moment you plan your vacation and you want to spend not too much on it, you should take a look first in websites that offer cheaper rooms. For me, I actually prefer bed and breakfast accommodation in Phillip island because it is one of the cheapest ones there is. While yes, hotel rooms can provide you with the comfort that you are looking for in a vacation, but that service can also be provided in bed and breakfast offers. If the only thing that you are to do in a room is sleep, then I believe this is the best option for you.
If you are travelling in groups, the price of the room or house that you are going to rent out would go down a little, but http://www.wyndhamap.com/wps/wcm/connect/Wyndham/home/Resorts/Australia/VIC/phillipisland/Accommodation give you the most discount for a group of people. This is because these agents or owners consider that they can still make some money off a single person, but through promotions, they can gain more money despite giving a discount. And as to you, since you will be travelling in a group, then I honetsly believe that it is a perfect option for you and your friends since you will be able to spend the rest of your vacation in place with them at a lower price.
People would often time spend so much on their vacation, I do not see any problem with that for as long as it helps them enjoy more during their stay, but you do not have to pay so much in order to do so. I you are in it for the experience and relaxation, then getting a comfortable room without too much of the amenities that will increase the fee is already enough since the only thing that you are to do in it is sleep. Give yourself a break as well as your bank account, and travel cheap.
