TRAVEL DURING THE LOW SEASON
Most of the high season travel is done when the weather is favorable. However, since everyone is traveling during this period, most of the destinations will be packed with tourists. The hotels will most likely be fully booked and getting space would mean one has to pay more.
Did you know that you could enjoy the low season travel when fewer people are traveling? You may not have the best weather during this period but you can rest assured that the prices of travel will be much lower in comparison to high season travel. In some good tourist destinations such as Greece and Ireland, some hotels will close. The same case applies to some attractions. However, this does not mean that all the hotels, restaurants and attraction sites will be closed.
You need to do some research beforehand so that you know which hotels and attraction sites will be open during the low season. Planning ahead is the secret to an enjoyable holiday during the low season. Low season trips could be the magic you have always been waiting for!
USE UBER CABS DURING YOUR CITY TRAVELS
When you want to save some good money during your travel, whether during the low or high season, Uber rides are some of the safest and most comfortable taxi services you will find anywhere in the world. With Uber, all you need to do is locate an Uber Taxi ride nearby and travel to your city or intercity destinations for the cheap.
One of the reasons Uber is much cheaper than the other taxi services is that it offers services from drivers who ride their own vehicles. This makes the cost of running this service cheaper when compared to the taxi companies. With Uber, other than the lower prices, the drivers are well qualified and their vehicles are supposed to be comfortable and well maintained. When you travel to a new destination and you are not sure of the UberX services in that city, please contact Uber. It is so easy to contact Uber through phone, email, app and social media platforms. You should also contact the company any time you are in doubt of the services offered by the UberX drivers.
FIND SOMEWHERE FREE TO LIVE
If you have a friend or a relative somewhere you are traveling, this could be one of the best ways to save on accommodation and food costs. There are people who swap homes so that they can live in a free place during their travel period. You could do this through the online groups. It is also possible to find a host to offer you free accommodation and even food, through the couch-surfing platform. If you are able to find free places to stay during your travel, this should be the best way to make savings on your travel in 2018.
