8 Ways to Travel More in 2019

I spent many years travelling around the USA, from Atlanta to San Fransisco, I managed to see 49 of the 50 states. Travel is always on my mind and comes into conversation a lot. So, the question that naturally pops up is How can I travel more?This is such a hard question to answer as there are so many facets to travel. So today, I’m sharing some of the top money saving tips and ways to help you travel more in the new year – from planning your trip and saving on flights, to accommodation and food, we will discuss it all! ways to travel more

Before you go:

REWARD POINTS // One of the main ways to save when planning a trip is by using reward points and miles. By using airline/hotel credit cards for your day to day expenses you can rack up points to redeem for hotel stays and flights, sometimes this can even make your flights completely free. ways to travel more

MORE NIGHTS IN // Instead of going out every weekend, have more nights in with friends and family. Not only does this help you to save money but you get to spend time with friends and family as well.

DRINK AT HOME // Rather than spend money on a coffee every morning try making your own at home. Everytime you feel the need to nip out for a coffee or hot chocolate make it at home and put a few pounds aside for your trip.

TRAVEL FUND // Your travel fund can take any form you choose; a jar, a tin, or possibly even a separate bank account. The important thing is that you are putting aside money for your trips. Try to pick an amount you can set aside each month and then put it away in your fund.

On the road: ways to travel more

OFF PEAK TIMES // This may seem like an obvious thing to do, but many people don’t realise how much cheaper it is to travel off season. Trains, buses, flights, and even hotel raise their prices during typical tourist season so if can avoid these time you will save a lot.

LAST MINUTE/FAR IN ADVANCE // These days it seems that flights and hotel are cheaper when you book last minute or super far  in advance. As someone who likes to have everything planned out I would recommend the latter.

TRAVEL WITH FRIENDS // Travelling with friends splits the cost of some of the most expensive aspects of travelling. Rental cars, apartment/home rentals, and if that is not enough, travelling with friends is twice the fun!

RENT A HOUSE/APARTMENT // Renting an apartment or house can end up much cheaper than a typical hotel. This way you also save on meals by cooking in the house. ways to travel more

    I’ve been making several day trips to NYC this past few months since I’ve had a lot of time. I usually plan the trips for the weekday because the bus tickets are cheaper then are cheaper than over the weekend! I’m definitely an advocate for traveling off peak :3

      I totally understand Marina they are really hard to keep track of, but they are such a great way to travel for free! Maybe try keeping an excel spreadsheet with them all on there so you can keep track.
