Travel Hacks for when you’re Broke and in Need of a Vacation

by - February 28, 2019

If you know that you are in dire need of a vacation, then you may find yourself trawling through endless travel sites. The problem is that most of them will probably be way out of your budget, and this can be disheartening to say the least. If you want to get around this then here are a few tips that will help to get you started.

Plan for Off-Peak

You need to be wary of seasonal travel. What one destination classes as being “off-peak” might not be the same as another. If you want to get around this then travel to countries where there are less tourists. You might also want to consider areas such as Africa, Latin America or even Europe. These destinations tend to be really cheap at certain times of the year and you can save a small fortune by booking accordingly.


A lot of people don’t even think about staying in hostels when they book their vacation, but the truth is that it can save you a ton of money. Not only do you get access to lower prices, you also get the authentic backpacker atmosphere. You can create memories that will last a lifetime by staying in places like this, and you can also meet a ton of new friends while you are there. If you do want to book a hostel, then there are plenty of apps that can help you to do this. If you are not keen on the idea of hostels or if you want a bit more of a luxury experience then do a search for “hotels near me”.

Free Classes

Did you know that there are so many hotels around the world who offer free classes to all of their guests? You can soothe your soul by taking a yoga class or you can even take a cookery course. When you do this, you get to fill up your day with plenty of fun, and you also get the chance to find out what else there is to do in the local area as well. It doesn’t take long to do your research, but when you do, you will soon find that you can get way more for your money.


Tourist traps are a nightmare for your wallet. People often go to them because they are popular and because they offer a great experience. This is true, but that doesn’t mean to say that you can’t get a fantastic experience elsewhere. There are a ton of hidden gems around the world and some of them are still yet to be discovered. So why not venture out, go somewhere you never thought you would and see where the road takes you?

Treasure Experiences

Souvenirs really are overrated. Instead of focusing on what you can bring back, focus on what you can do while you are there. Your memories will last a lifetime and your bags will be way lighter. This will give you the chance to make impulsive decisions and it will also save you a ton of money if your luggage goes over the weight limit.
