This week’s highlights of budget travel insights!
If you travel often enough eventually you are going to have a bad flight experience. Whether it’s a big flight delay, a missed connecting flight, some other horrible service issue or a combination of these, it’s never any fun. But since you have to go through it anyway you may as well take advantage of the situation and try to extract as many free mileage points as you can. Sometimes you can get so many points that you almost hope the experience happens again.
This travel contest is very easy to enter, and there’s no purchase required. The prize is for a $6,000 trip for two to St. Lucia which includes airfare. Entries must be received by June 24, 2013. May as well give it a try!
Camping can be a great way to travel on a budget, and this article gives some great pointers on how to make your camping experiences even less expensive. Things like cost-sharing with other families, finding less expensive or even free camping fees, and inexpensive camping gear are covered.
This woman is AWESOME! She is a ‘normal’ person who had a ‘normal’ job throughout her working life, but even during the years she was employed she made a point of living simply and traveling inexpensively, so that she could travel throughout her life. And now that she’s retired she is seeing even more of the world. The only thing I would like to add specifically to the article is that hostels are more and more open to travelers of all ages. No need to worry that they are only for people in their 20’s and 30’s.
