Use travel consolidators
Use travel consolidators, on- and offline. They snatch up empty airline seats and unsold cruise cabins and resell them at a great discount. Sign up to receive information on last minute deals.
Consider youth hostels
Consider youth hostels, especially in the more expensive cities around the world. You’ll sacrifice privacy, but you’ll save a bundle.
Eat at street vendors
Rely on street food vendors for most of your meals.
Check student travel rates
Check out student rates on bus and rail passes.
Be flexible. Monday and Thursday departures are generally cheaper than weekend fares. And save a bundle by flying into a less popular city and then catching a train or driving to your desired destination.
Vacation in off-season
Vacation in the off-season, when prices are cheaper and you don’t have to fight the crowds.
