To travel, to feel relaxed, to get out of your comfort zone is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.

Sounds ironic? This is true, because traveling opens our eyes, warms our hearts and frees our mind. Certainly, you don't have to be rich to go on adventures, you just have to know how to travel on a budget.

Traveling is not always about money, sometimes it mostly needs courage, so learn how to plan. Planning, you as a traveler should have a wise plan for your travel journey. 

The first tip, search for the best transport engine on your journey. Different websites might be helpful for you to discover the best transport method that you can use on your journey. Decide where you can save money, it can be an airplane, bus, or car. Decide wisely! Remember, just always have the courage to look for your transport best partner. So you can travel on a budget. 

Next is, much better if you travel during low season or 'shoulder season' or somewhere in between low and high. No-brainer tip but it can be a golden rule if you want to less your travel expenses. In traveling, timing is the key, so make your travel plan not in summer and winter season. 

Also, please take note of this, try to be in the fewer places but for a longer time. You should enjoy those places on your travel list, it would be a waste of money, time and effort if you make your travel in rush. Don't stay on your travel destination in a short span of time. Enjoy first the place. 

It would be also a great help if you have a 'travel buddy' or someone that can share the cost of your travel expenses. It's always fine and less hassle if you travel alone or on a solo trip. But if you want to travel on budget, find a friend or travel buddy who is willing to go on the same journey as you do. Always remember the 50:50 rule in sharing and I'm sure it will be a win-win situation for both of you. Aside from that, you can also have that kind of bonding and experience together. So, you may less your expenses at the same time you created memories. 

Lastly, if you really want to travel on a budget, start first at financial-friendly destinations. Why not travel first here in the Philippines? 

Look and witness first the beautiful tourist spot and breathtaking islands of our country. And if you have the budget later on, then have that 'out of the country' experience. But then again, enjoy first the tourist spots that we have. It will be the best experiences and memories you will cherish.
