Saving Money When Traveling Abroad – Part 2

Welcome back to the Sapphire blog space. In our last blog post, we touched on a few of the ways that you can plan to save money while traveling abroad. If you haven’t had a chance to read it yet, make sure that you head back over to that blog to ensure that you make the most of your travel plans.

Now, our team isn’t done listing out the various ways that you can make the most of the money you’re spending while traveling. Let’s talk about a few more ways that good planning can help you stay within a budget before you head abroad.

Work on an Itinerary

Traveling is one of those things that, as much as you plan, always have something unexpected happen. Though that is often the case, it’s always good to try your best to create an itinerary for the time that you’ll be gone. Sure, a little bit of organization is always good to have, but having an itinerary can also help you save some money.

A little confused on how that could be? Well, by creating an itinerary you’re going to give yourself a good idea of how many days you’ll be gone and what you’re going to do during those days. This will help you account for the places that you need to stay, the meals that you’re going to eat, and the places that you’re going to visit. Once you’ve figured out an itinerary, you can better plan for how to make your funds last as long as possible.

Try Different Forms of Transportation

When it comes to getting to your final destination, there may only be one form of transportation available, but that won’t be the case once you’re exploring this new country! When you need to get from one place to the next, weighing your options in regards to transportation is a great way to save a couple of dollars. Though it may not seem like it would make a big difference, some forms of transportation are going to cost more than others.

Aside from saving you some money here and there, different forms of transportation can lead to different adventures. Rather than stick to the same option each time that you need to get from spot A to spot B, try a different avenue and see which doors it opens!

Invest in Travel Products

Given that traveling has been a massive part of society for, well as long as we can date back to, we’ve seen some pretty impressive products come out to optimize the avid traveler’s experience. From luggage that has been designed to make packing easier to products that accommodate for the differences of other countries, investing in items that will make your travels smoother is something we suggest doing.

While it’s not always one of the things that will save you money in the long run, it is an investment that you’ll use for endless travels to come. A world adapter, for example, will save you from having to purchase an overpriced outlet adapter when you’re visiting another country. Wireless internet hotspots will always come in useful regardless of where you’re traveling to, and they save you money while traveling!

By choosing to purchase these items before your travels, you can keep this adventure, and those in the future, just the slightest bit more affordable and a whole lot more convenient.

Know Your Currency

The last point that we’re going to touch on isn’t so much a tip on saving, but more of a final note to end on. Currency and it’s exchange rate differ across the globe, so knowing and understanding what the change is going to be is crucial. Before you travel or book any plans, make sure to get an idea of what the currency exchange is going to be so that you can best accommodate your finances and know how to plan moving forward.
