Some hacks to make your travelling cheap:
1. Transportation Phase
The most important thing for enjoying budget trips in India is to ensure about all the types of transportation expenses. It includes all the expenses related to transportation during the travelling like by rail, road or air. Even from main spots to sub-spots of travelling. It is good to know about all the fares in your journey in prior. Have a vague idea about the regional fares, pre-check the costs; fixed rental vehicles like cabs, bikes and many others. Public transportation is the best option to cut down the cost. In short, have a little knowledge of it so that you don’t pay more than normal or fares. Many a times it may happen that the transportation expenses are the main one to increase your overall cost of travelling.
2. Low Air Fares
Air fares are the major part. Especially when we plan to go out almost all the places by flight. How can we plan out about the air fares so that it costs cheaper to us? There are many things which can help you cut down the cost as possible. Precisely check all the details of location, cost per mile, dates, timings and ranges. Prefer off hours flights which are comparatively cheaper than normal hour’s flights when planning budget trips in India. Sometimes overnight flights are also cheap. Booking early windows can low your cost due to off season also. Even check the prices of the same on the multiple air lines. If possible prefer holiday packages, too. So, be aware of low air fares not just less air fares!
3. Accommodations and Food
Food and accommodation are two aspects which affect on cost control. The good option for food is take some home-made snacks along with you. So, when you feel like munching, have them instead of purchasing miscellaneous snacks every now and then. Even when you go to restaurants – order one-two dishes or items at first, and if you like the taste and quality of it – order more. As we are planning budget trips in India, you wouldn’t like the taste of your money go in vain. For water don’t spend too much on mineral water bottles. You can fill up the water bottles from hotels where you stay or even at the public places where you feel that quality is good enough. It saves a good amount of money. For accommodation part, be ensured about the rents as some fixed packages are good whereas you may get discount on some other schemes as well. You can even prefer some religious places like “dharamshala” to stay during your travelling. It also cuts down good amount of money of accommodation. Now, what next?
4. Stay Updated for the Same
If you have planned everything, it doesn’t mean that you don’t need to check its progress. Keep yourself updated by using latest technology tools. Sometimes post-updating your plans can make your journey cheaper. Consider taking regular look on online price trends, subscription of any travelling sites’ newsletters and regional news which can help you. For example, there is a recent prohibition on some place and you have already booked there. You can cancel it and get its refund. So, somehow you manage to save money while enjoying your budget trips in India.
Also, keep an eye on trending offers and promotions regularly to cut down your cost up to major extent.
