The Philippines is one of the places that manages to capture your minds and imaginations and transfers you to wonderland. Tourism has been on a rise in the Philippines, and with great landscapes, it should not come as a surprise.
There are two types of travelers; those who travel luxuriously and those who try to travel on budget. Most lie in the latter category. If you like to travel around but don’t want to waste money on needless things, then the following helpful tips:
Shop for high value travel equipment
No matter where you are going, you will need a bag to pack your clothes and accessories. You could get carried away and buy a really expensive, branded bag but at the end of the day, it is just a bag which will carry your clothes. This is where markets and online websites like Kaymu can come in handy. You can browse through different bags and get a great bag at a bargain.
Book hotels in advance
One of the best ways to save money is by booking hotels in advance. In the Philippines, there are a lot of hotels which offer massive discounts on earlier reservations. Apart from saving money, this is also a great way to save time. When you land at a destination, you can go straight to the hotel instead of visiting different hotels for a room at an affordable rate. Online booking websites like Travel Book has a list of different hotels in the Philippines from which you can book a room of your liking.
Reserve air tickets in advance
Just as the case with hotels, air tickets can also be bought in advance at a discounted price. This will not only save you money but also time during rush hours. The best option is to get return tickets as these give more value for money.
Pick your destinations wisely
We all want to visit as many places as possible in a limited span of time. This can be possible, but only if you plan in advance. The Philippines has a lot of stunning landscapes and places you can see. Travel forums like Trip Advisor can guide you a lot in what places to see and where to stay etc. You can see the travel time between different places. This will allow you to plan your trip wisely both economically and time wise.
Use public transport where possible
One of the major cost incurring activities is travelling from one place to another. A lot of people prefer to go privately in a taxi or other private transportation modes. The best way to save money is to use the public transport where possible. The Philippines has a pretty decent public transport network. This will allow you to save cost significantly.
These were the major tips on how to travel to your favorite destination without incurring major costs. You can save both time and money by following the above mentioned tips and enjoy a memorable trip.
