10 Tips for Luxury Travel on a Budget
Planning an upcoming luxe vacation? Did you know you can take your luxury vacation on a budget? Yes, you read right. Read on to learn our 10 secret tips for a budget luxury travel trip.
1.) Set a daily budget
Set a budget for daily expenses (like food) and stick to it. Some other examples:
2.) Venture off the beaten path
Head to a luxe vacation spot but stay away from the touristy areas. Tourist hot spots are known to be the most expensive areas. Stay away from tourist spots means you can stay in town, as well as shop, eat, and travel in town with the locals too. You can save some major money doing this.
3.) Choose destinations based on the cost of the flight
So simple answer makes a lot of sense, right? You can save hundreds doing this. Cool destinations like India, Canada, and Eastern Europe are much cheaper than many of the often-visited spots like islands and Western Europe, for example.
4.) Sign up to travel sites and resort sites, then watch you inbox
Keep an eye on your email inbox for special deals to your favorite spots that can save you a TON! Planning your luxury trip around the time a sale is happening is a great opportunity to save money. You don’t wanna miss this one.
5.) Visit attractions close to closing time
Many times as attractions are near closing time (like museums), you can get discounted tickets. You can get last minute deals on a bunch of cool stuff.
6.) Stay at a bed n’ breakfast
BNB’s and homes you can rent tend to be a lot cheaper than hotels. AirBNB, friends. Get a larger space, with kitchen, multiple rooms and bathrooms for a fraction of the cost of hotel. Can’t beat it!
7.) Try Glamping
Glam camping anyone? Go to glamping.com to learn about all the glamping hot spots all over the world.
8) Visit up and coming destinations
These places are becoming more popular but definitely deemed an emerging destination so you’ll get to enjoy luxe views and an amazing time for a fraction of the cost of a popular travel spot. Examples: Maldives
9.) Stay at a newly opened hotel
Try to catch a grand opening where you can get a KILLER deal on your stay. See: The most anticipated hotels of 2017
