If you’re looking to travel on a budget, there are a few things you can do to help. One is to think about your destination carefully. You don’t want to overspend on your trip, but you also don’t want to miss out on any of the fun. Generally this means picking out a main activity and filling in with less expensive or free options. Almost every vacation destination has budget friendly walking tours, museums, galleries and parks.

Set a realistic budget. Going into debt for a vacation often causes people to stress about money. You can avoid this by setting a realistic budget and sticking to it. You should do this before choosing a destination as the budget will help you choose the right vacation spot.

Another way to save money is to plan your trip well in advance. This means finding out what kind of activities you want to do and reserving your tickets well in advance. Sites like Groupon offer huge saving opportunities but may have specific dates or blackouts. The trick to getting those discounts is to book early.

And lastly, don’t forget about your travel insurance. This will help protect you from any unexpected expenses and ensure that your trip is as enjoyable as possible.
