There are people who just love to travel. They travel across so many countries that it is even difficult to keep a count of it. You might have also seen that these people do so in much less many than people spending their holidays once a week. In this post, I will be discussing the key to this and how are they able to do this. Being an avid traveller myself and having travelled more than 50 countries it makes much sense to listen to my advice rather than others.
First, is booking flights or travel arrangements. Make sure, whatever it is be it train or flight you book it early. You, get discount for that save a lot of money. Tickets can be as cheap as 70%. This also helps you in planning. Since, first and last days are fixed you have to plan your trip between this.
Food is the second most important thiing. If you are a professional Traveler, you would never like to go to a five star hotel in the country where you are travelling. You would like to try their local cuisine and famous restaurants, recipes and meet new chefs who are pretty popular you get food at a cheaper and you are able to enjoy other tradition as well.
Third, is shelter. You can look out for accomodation stays olike lodges instead of hotels as they are cheaper. This would help you in saving money
Fourth, do your research before hand. You have power of Google with you. Make sure the product you buy is worth its price. It is quite possible when you are street shopping you can be cheated considering you are a foreigner. Be aware of this and do research before hand.
If possible make local friends and travel with them. Asked for their film in choosing destinations, food, shelter.
As far as gadgets are concerned a professional travel would always carry with him a laptop, camera, mobile, wallet with cards and a bag with essentials and water.
If needed do carry your translation dictionary as it can be helpful in another country.
Professional Traveler never get late for his flight will make sure he checks in before time and has the best seats in the flight. He will also like to check before hand whether his flight is on time. Also, while travelling in another country try to use an app which helps you keep track of spending, an app for navigation and one for booking cheapest things.
This is how professional travellers act. If you want to become start utilizing and planning your time and money effectively while travelling.
