Traveling is a wonderful experience people would like to do more often, but the problem is that it can get costly. If you're willing to make the time and effort and be smart about your choices, however, you will be able to go to the places you've always wanted to visit without having to spend too much. Here are 5 ways to save money for your travels.
1 Go to places during the off season.
A lot of times we want to visit places during their prime season, like Baguio for Christmas or Boracay during the summer. These may be the best times to visit these places, but they are also the most expensive. Consider going to places during the off season. There are less crowds, and prices are much lower than usual. You'll still enjoy the location, even if it's not at its peak season, and you get to save a lot of money you can allocate to other things during your trip.
2 Sign up for reward point programs.
Reward programs allow you to earn points with every purchase. Even if you may not necessarily travel often or spend a lot of money on trips, it doesn't hurt to sign up for these programs because eventually you’ll get enough savings to get discounts on your trips. You can have your friends and family use your accounts if they want to book hotels or tickets, and you'll be able to reap the rewards faster. TravelBook also has a reward points program; you just need to register as a member, which is free.
