Traveling is an amazing experience for many tourists, but can be very expensive. We all know that saving up to travel can take months of tedious saving and planning. While it’s good to save and to be thrifty with your money, there are certain things when it comes to traveling that you should just not splurge on! You’ve spent to much effort to come to a new, exciting, and thrilling place, so make sure you know where to spend your money and when to cut back just a little. Above all, make sure that you don’t get thrifty when it comes to once in a lifetime opportunities. If you’re visiting a country you know you’ll never be in again, make sure to do all you can do while you’re there! Spend a little more! Never skip out on experiences overall because you’ll never get those back.
- Don’t underestimate the value of getting to your destination sooner, that $100 may cost you 4 hours waiting time in an airport.
- Travel with a budget in mind, but splurge when it adds value to the experience.
- If it really is a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” you may want to just “go for it.”
