Want a guilt free splurge on your next trip? Here are 5 easy ways to find extra money.
Instead I thought I'd look at 5 easy, creative, pain free ways you can save or find some extra money for your next trip, whether it's $25 or $250. Get ready to start indulging your travel dreams, big and small!
$25 - Trade coffee for wine
And as an added bonus? Chances are your favourite treat - like mine - is less than healthy. We'd likely all benefit from living and eating more healthfully before we travel.
$50 -Win the luggage game
At $25 per bag per flight, you'll be spending a minimum of $50 a person for each trip. A couple who take three round trip flights a year would save at least $300! I'd much rather use that money for a guilt free purchase at a market; maybe some homemade jewelry or a silk scarf (or coffee, lots and lots of glorious Kona coffee! See, who needs the coffee shop?)
$100 - Buy a guidebook
A guidebook will tell you what day of the week the museum or art gallery is free to visit. A guidebook will tell you which restaurant offers a special half-price chef's tasting menu. A guidebook will help you pull together your own free walking or cycling tour. And the trusted voice a guidebook will reassure you when you take the plunge into budget travel. It will walk you through your first hostel visit and it will you know what discount tour providers are credible and which should be avoided.
$200 - Try the $200 Challenge
$250: Go all inclusive
And what can you do with a bonus $250? Why, anything you want! Hire a private guide for the day. Indulge in some spa treatments. Use it to fund a few bonus days of travel later on in the year - and maybe set out on your own $200 Challenge!
Let's hear it for making more travel possible!
