How To Save Money While Traveling

Did you know that you can save money while travelling? The following are some of the tips:

1. Use Flight Comparison Sites

The flight comparison sites take off the hassle of going to every airline website. Websites like Kayak, Momondo, Skyscanner and Google Flights are great for comparing flight options and finding deals.

They allow you to book flights, hotels and car hire, often giving extra discounts if you combine them.

To add on that, direct flights are typically much more expensive than flights with a stop over or connection. Extra hours of travel time could equal  some savings on your ticket price.

2. Don’t Wait Until The Last Minute

Whether it’s doing our holiday shopping or preparing for a vacation, we hold it off until the very last minute. Unfortunately, this could run you into headaches, expenses and other problems.

It’s true that there are sometimes amazing last minute travel deals, but in general you’ll save a lot of money by booking in advance. In fact, if you leave it till the last minute, the flight costs are often sky high. But if you plan ahead and book the right way, the savings can soar.

My Kenyan Safari Experience

One of the highlights of our trip to Kenya, was going on a safari to Tsavo East National Park.

It is one of the oldest parks in Kenya. This park is located in the South East of Kenya near the town of Voi in the Taita-Taveta District of Coast Province.

Tsavo East National Park is one of the largest national parks in Kenya that covers 13,747 square kilometres.

What To Do In Brussels In A Day

Brussels is often referred to as the capital of Europe. Indeed, this  city is International because it has the headquarters of the European Union and NATO.

A Visit To A Marvel Of Engineering In Belgium

 First and foremost, for the last few months, we have been avoiding the bucket list approach to our travels. The reasons behind this are:

  • It’s  limiting
  • We could ultimately miss out on new experiences that develop along the way 

Indeed, travel isn’t all about checking off the bucket list,  the experiences help in self empowerment and also making memories. To be honest,  the Strepy-Thieu Funicular Boat Lift is one of those things that absolutely was never in my bucket list. But after our adventure, I think that  it’s an absolute must see  if you are travelling through Belgium. It’s definitely a tourist attraction in its own right!
