Money should no longer be an excuse for not travelling. Unlike some years back, there are faster means to travel and the roads are better. Also with technology, you can book trips online and only show up on travel day.
If you are still holding on to the popular belief that travelling is so expensive, it’s time to change how you see it. You don’t have to be a millionaire to travel and it’s very possible to travel the world on a low budget. How? Just try and make use of these tips:
Travel off season
This is the best way to travel to some of the best destinations both in Kenya and abroad. For instance, most people are waiting for December to travel to Mombasa and other tourist destinations. To avoid paying more, travel during the off peak seasons.
Don’t travel alone
Solo travelling is a great way to discover yourself and enjoy some time alone. Even so, if you are working with a small budget, it can be quite pricey. Either travel with your friends, family, colleagues or with your boo. That way, you spend less on things such as transport and accommodation. You might also get a discount when travelling as a couple.
Most travel companies give discounts for people who pay booking fees like a month prior to the trip. Why not take advantage by always paying earlier?
Do your research
One of the reasons why people still think that travelling is so expensive is lack of information. Make use of social media to identify different travelling companies and their prices. You will notice that there are several places you can go to with an all inclusive package of only Ksh 2,000.
Don’t do hotels
Accommodation can be quite an expensive affair when travelling. Luckily, there are other options like sleeping in hostels, camping and staying over with people you know. Hostels are way cheaper compared to hotels and camping in some places is usually free.
