Travellers waste money so easily!

Now, travelling is definitely a luxury activity, even if it’s on a shoestring budget. Today, I want to cover how you’re probably making travelling way more expensive for yourself than you need. Making small will ensure you don’t waste money and will save you dollars for more activities!

Eating on the main strip!

Having your roaming turned on

This really isn’t necessary as WIFI is easily accessible at local restaurants, cafés, or even malls. Don’t forget your hotel as well! This can be a nasty surprise when you get home and end up with a hefty bill from your service provider.

Getting local taxis everywhere

Most major cities have a ride-sharing program, such as Uber, which can save money! On the other hand, public transport should not be disregarded, especially if you’re visiting places such as London or Paris, where they have a great underground system.

Not looking around before you exchange money

There are lots of apps that can do quick calculations of exchange rates offline. Having these, doing research, and looking at the buy and sell rates before making the switch is important and can be a common way to waste money ad lose hundreds of dollars quickly.

Purchasing expensive travel insurance

A lot of travellers will often avoid travel insurance because of the cost; well, this saves money, it’s a risk I won’t be taking. Especially as there are lots of comparison websites that can get you covered for as little as $10 a day!

Data-free mobile apps

Yep, and there are lots of them! Before going on your holiday or leaving the hotel, make sure you download offline maps. You won’t need to be connected to the internet to use them, and you can easily navigate around the city without needing to be connected to any WIFI or roaming. As we mentioned earlier, that can be expensive!

Ok, there you have it! These are all the MOST common ways you could possibly be wasting money when you’re travelling.

Don't forget to pack these on your next trip!
