Share this post:

Travelling is a necessary part of life. Travelling is a great way to help you clear your mind and rejuvenate yourself. Most people take trips to get a break from their regular hectic lives. It helps you to open up your mind and clear your head. As fun and exciting as travelling may be, it also comes with a list of expenses. To say the least, travelling is not cheap at all.  However you can save a lot of money by choosing from some of the best hotel booking apps and get great deals on hotel booking. 

Travelling can cost you a fortune which may build up even more stress rather than doing the opposite for you. However, this should not stop you from taking trips as a whole. There are many ways in which you can cut down your expenses to make your trip more digestible and stress-free. Being prepared financially is highly important for anything in life including travelling. If you are saving up for your trip but don’t know what expenses to cut down on, keep reading the article. Here are 13 ways to cut your expenses and have more money for travel: 

1. Create a separate bank account

Creating a separate bank account for your trip will help you to understand how much money you have saved up altogether. All of the savings that you make for your trip, put in that bank account. In this way, not only will you have your money for the trip organised but you will also not end up spending it elsewhere. Therefore creating a second bank account is always a great way to save.

2. Make a list of all your daily expenses and try to compromise on a few of them

Making a list of your daily expenses can help you to understand your priorities. Out of the list, you can pick out all of the items that you don’t necessarily require every day. You can then cut down on spending on those items and save that money for your trip instead. This is a great way to cut down on expenses and save money faster.

3. Spend less on food

Food is something that can take up a lot of money for no reason. If you are someone who orders food from outside regularly, you need to cut down on that. You can make some great meals out of minimal expenses as well. Therefore, try to avoid spending on food and save that money for your trip.

4. Use public transport

Using public transport is a great way to save on fuel money. The cost of gas nowadays is rising to crazy heights. Therefore, you may end up spending a lot on petrol and diesel if you use your car to travel around regularly. Public transport is also not just convenient but also very cheap compared to private transport.

5. Don’t spend on online apps

Many times, we end up buying unnecessary items online on apps. For example, a lot of us pay for subscriptions for apps such as Netflix, Apple Music, Amazon prime, and many more. Therefore, try to avoid making such purchases and save up all that money.

6. Open a savings account

A savings account will help you to force yourself into saving money for your trip. You can put a particular amount of money every day into your savings account. In this way, you will easily save up quite some money so that you can travel comfortably. A savings account is a great way to remind you of your savings and will also help you to keep a track of all the money that you are saving.

7. Cut down on Electricity

Electricity is something that we can easily cut down on. We end up spending a lot on our monthly electricity bills. Therefore, try to avoid using unnecessary electricity and save up that money.

8. Cut down on alcohol and smoking

Alcohol and smoking end up taking up a lot of our money. This is mainly because they are highly expensive and aren’t of much use. Therefore try to cut down on these expenses.

9. Sell items that you don’t use anymore

Selling items that you do not use anymore can help you to get in some extra cash. You can sell all of your useless clothes, shoes, collections of various records, books etc.

10. Buy second-hand items

As much as possible, try to make second-hand purchases. Second-hand items are almost as good as new original items and also cost much less.

11. Find a way to earn some extra cash

You can always find a side hustle to help you gain some extra money. You can take up various small internships online or get a minimum wage job to help you with extra money so that you can use it for your trip.

12. Use reusable items

Always try to use the usable items. For example, you can carry around a reusable water bottle so that you can avoid spending money on buying new water bottles when outside.

13. Set a limit to your spending

Set a daily limit for your spending. This will help you to keep all expenses in control. For example, you can make a limit of spending only $50 every day. 

These were 13 ways to cut your expenses and have more money for travel. We hope that this article could help you find some great ways to save money so that you can have a stress-free and fun trip.

Bruno Fernandes responds to claims he berated Manchester United team-mates

Antony marked his Manchester United debut with a well-taken goal against Arsenal on Sunday, becoming the first Brazilian to score on his Premier League bow for the club. The winger, who arrived from Ajax in an £81.3million (€95m) deal, latched onto Marcus Rashford’s well-timed pass to slot home after 35 minutes, handing the Red Devils a 1-0 lead at Old Trafford. Antony became the ninth Brazilian player to appear for United in the Premier League. At the age of 22 years and 192 days, Antony’s goal made him the youngest Brazilian to score on his Premier League debut for any team. Casemiro became the eighth Brazilian to appear for United in the competition last month after joining from Real Madrid, but the midfielder is still awaiting his first start for the club. Antony was United’s most costly addition in a busy transfer window, having joined the likes of Christian Eriksen, Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, Casemiro and Martin Dubravka in making the switch to Old Trafford.
