We are all guilty of subscribing to multiple travel pages and blogs that keep posting the dreamy vacation pictures on our newsfeed. Have you lost count of the number of times you added it to your bucket list only for it to lay idle there? Have you gone on the road trip you planned with your college friends? What about the weekend getaway that your colleague suggested? Well, did you at least book the tickets for the vacation you were planning with your loved one?
If it is the bills that is holding you back, then fret not, as we have compiled nine hacks with which you can spend less and travel more!
Plan early and book cheap flights! Yes, I know you have heard this one enough number of times. But do not worry if you did not. Early booking might at times get you tickets at half the price as compared to last minute bookings. As they say "Better early than sorry"
If you are not the early planner types we have a suggestion for you as well. Log in to coupons websites like Couponkosh.in where you'll get latest and best flight offers from all the travel websites like makemytrip, yatra.com, Cleartrip, Ixigo and even the new ones like Goomo. At times you can get discounts as high as upto Rs. 2000 off on domestic flights and Rs. 25,000 off on international flights. Isn't it amazing?? Thus you are saved from the hassle of looking for best deals across the web and still you are able to avail the best possible Makemytrip Coupon, Cleartrip or yatra offer and in turn save big on your pocket.
Plan your visits during the off season. There are some jaw dropping offers that the hotels promote during this time. Some even slash down their prices and offer 50% discount or more on Hotels! As an added bonus, there is much less crowd and can visit all the places you love more comfortably. You never know you might fall in love with the monsoons in Goa plus save big.
Not convinced? Are you someone who wants to be a part of the happening festivals/parties and don't care much about the crowd? Well, we have something for you too. Do a small search for hotel coupons online or visit Couponkosh.in and get the best hotel offers. Makemytrip coupons, Cleartrip and yatra offers on this website provides irresistible discounts as high as 30% off that make it easy on your pockets.
Interestingly, food and drink bills are the sneaky culprits that usually burn a huge hole in your pockets! To bring it down, pick hotels that offer complimentary breakfast and water. Also, you can request to use the kitchen in selected hotels and make coffee or tea. And do not forget to make use of the happy hours for your drinks. Avoid flashy and touristy traps, and go for the Local food joints that serve you irresistible local cuisines at a fairly low cost. Like they say, when travelling, Eat like a Local.
If you are planning a holiday at the last minute, try to look for fixed departures online. You can join a trekking package or a group departure as they sell at discounted rates if they have empty seats.>
Even hotels offer cheap prices if you book on the same day. Once the check-in time is over, you can grab some last minute hotel deal on makemytrip, yatra.com or Cleartrip. You can also benefit from cashbacks, Discount Coupons, and Reward Points that these sites offer for your next trip.
Remember that we are a generation that lives on cashbacks and points. Almost all travel sites offer loyalty rewards and programs. So keep collecting those makemytrip points and gocash from goibibo and make travel easy on your pockets.
It's always a good idea to carry travel friendly stuffs like shades, sanitizer, wipes, hats/caps etc. Infact if you are a frequent traveller I would recommend to keep a bag ready with these stuffs and toiletries like moisturizer, tooth paste, brush, shampoo (if you are too choosy and don't use the one offered by hotels). These would save you from emergency purchase at the tourist destination where they charge a bomb knowing that you being a tourist would pay whatever they ask for.
