How to travel around the world cheaply


How to travel around the world cheaply


In this post I'm gonna show you how you can travel the world for cheap in 2020, now look there are so many places you can go in the world, for example, right now we're in Japan and I've had so many people ask me how are you traveling to all these different places we've been on about 40 some flights in 2019 and people asked how do you afford it how are you able to travel for a couple hundred dollars for a week's worth of travel around the world I'm gonna show you everything in this post we're gonna break it down into three parts we're going to talk about how you're actually getting to your destination. are you flying, how are you getting your flights where are you finding your flights we're gonna talk about accommodation some of the cheapest ways to stay for, you know 20 30 40 dollars a night and then we'll talk about food we're gonna talk about some other travel tips as well to save you alot of money and look the point of this it's not to be cheap about this and try to pinch pennies when you're traveling I love spending money when I travel but the idea here is that if you can spend less money on certain areas when you're traveling you can end up going on more
trips you can end up going to a very cool destinations instead of going to the beach for a week and spending thousands of dollars on a very expensive hotel there's a lot of other options out there so let's get into that right now let's talk about one of the first things is how we're gonna find cheap flights okay so when it comes to actually getting to your destination there's a couple tips that we can have for you guys one of them is using a service that is really going to get you the best prices so everybody kind of has their
own options for this and their own best things for this some people use kayak some people use Scott's cheap flights I personally use Google flights now this is a personal preference I think Google is kind of the best when it comes to most things I find the cheapest prices on there I'll kind of show you guys what I do for myself when I book tickets there's a couple things that are really important to take into consideration though so what I'll do is all booked one-way ticket instead of booking roundtrip because that way in some cases it can be cheaper to fly to different cities and schedule different lay overs on your own rather than just kind of relying on these flight checkers to do it for you so what I'll do is I'll pull up Google flights and then I'll set my airport location a great tip for this is try to find an airport that's pretty big around you say that you have two airports both equally distant from your house that you live in right now one of them is a major international
airport and the other ones like a smaller hometown one the major airports you're generally gonna find cheaper flights all around so just keep that in mind the bigger the airport the better so for me Philadelphia Airport is literally like a couple miles away or New York even I can find some incredibly cheap flights out of there so try to get those bigger airports so for example for this date December 11th if you're flexible you can fly from Philadelphia to Las Vegas for $15 that's not a joke you can actually go for $15 frontiere you're probably gonna get to your destination they have relatively new
planes but it's $15 it's one-way you got the body return ticket somehow but you can see that you can find some really cheap flights on Google flights you know I've honestly never seen them for as low as 15 that's a pretty good deal to go across the country across the United States and you can see 15th alright so we also found a return ticket from Vegas to Philadelphia on the 14th for once again 15 dollars so your total round-trip ticket to Vegas is gonna be $30 for planes now you have to pay for hotels or find a place to stay in an
Airbnb but I can't look to travel it doesn't mean to be that expensive this is literally one of the cheapest flights I've ever seen that you can get you just have to be really really proactive about this try to get these tickets in about six weeks beforehand and you're gonna find some really really great deals now another thing that you want to take into consideration is if you can really focus on being flexible when it comes to where you're going so what I'll do on Google flights here is I'll just set this destination to the explore page and then I'll just look around the globe for cheap flights and sometimes you can end up in places that you never would have otherwise thought you were going to be in so for example I didn't plan on coming to Tokyo until a couple of weeks ago when I went out in Google flights and I just found a very inexpensive flight to get here for a few hundred dollars which is pretty cheap to go from New York to Japan for that cheap of a price and that's just because I was very open to where I was willing to go for myself now another thing is if you can be kind of flexible when it comes to the dates that you're traveling so generally if you're traveling during the week say on a Tuesday it's going to be cheaper than traveling on the weekend traveling on a Friday night or right before Thanksgiving or right before
Christmas when everybody's trying to travel it's gonna be more expensive so find the times when less people are traveling a great time like the fall right now October or November I suppose
it is it's it's gonna be pretty cheap alright so now let's talk about accommodation there's really four options that are available to you the first one is hotels now look I really I'm not a big fan of hotels I see so many families go on vacation and
they'll spend like $2,000 for a week for a hotel they're spending like $300 a night for hotels and I just don't think it's worth it it's something that I generally don't do the only time I'll stay in hotels is if I am in a country where it's relatively inexpensive say Mexico or if I'm in an area where it's a little bit dangerous maybe the government's not so stable then staying in a reputable hotel could be a good option rather than just like staying at somebody's house in a random country
the other option especially if you're traveling with a number of people is to use Airbnb ease I think this is a great option for whenever you're looking for
just something cheaper than a hotel
especially if you like five or six or seven people that's gonna be one of your best options now I also like to travel in hostels this is generally for people who are younger in their 20s in their 30s but this can really save you a lot of money some people don't like doing this and it's not for everybody but essentially just imagine a hotel room but with multiple beds that random people sleep in I'm not picky about it though I'm really not I found some of my favorite best memories that I've had this year came from just meeting people in hostels and ending up many people and then finding out you know they're going to a different country they're going to France or they're going to Israel somewhere and I just end up making friends and going to the next country with them kind of out of the blue
unexpectedly and I I think it's just really fun for myself it's generally for younger people though 20s and 30s I would say but you can get ones for 20 30 maybe 40 dollars a night at the most for a bed which is pretty cheap when it comes to travel comparing that to say hotels right now in Japan we're actually staying in some pod hotels which I think it's one of the coolest concepts I've seen in quite some time so I'll show you guys this I think it's just absolutely ridiculous but in a good way so it kind of looks like coffins but everybody has their own little pod it's just a bed there's not many a common it's not like a five-star hotel there's no pool but I think it's just so cool now they really cram people in here but it's so cheap it's like 40 dollars a night you know people don't think they can travel the world for cheap this is $40 a night that's that's really
inexpensive that's what $1,200 a month if you're gonna stay there for a month that's
cheaper than some people's rent that they pay in their apartment or in their house so I think this is so cool they have plenty of accommodations here they have showers obviously the the culture over here is so much different you can't walk around shoes in this pot hotel but it's it's really cool so I barely fit in here I'm a little bit tall my feet don't quite hang out of this you can close it too you can close the blinds and it's pretty quiet and it's pretty cool so they're actually putting these pods in some different cities as well I think they have in New York another thing to put them in Philadelphia LA a number of other cities throughout the world so looking at hostels looking at pod hotels these other things if you're not really picky there's something that will save you a lot of money and then finally the fourth option when it comes to accommodation is doing some type of couchsurfing now I want to be careful
with this because this can sometimes not
go so well or go as planned my tip for this is what only sleep on people's couches that you're friends with that you already know previously there's some websites for it like couchsurfing comm that I know people who have used them and had a good time but I would just be careful like sleeping on strangers couches that's a little bit weird but yet if you can just make friends with people around the world you're gonna end up having places to stay and the one thing my mom taught me from a young age is don't invite yourself over to people's houses so you know don't just tell your friend that you're gonna stay at their place for a week but let them invite you and then you have a place to stay for free and then when they come and visit your city you can just let them sleep on your couch and it's just kind of a mutual thing that I think it's just a great way for everybody to save money and just get a better experience all around the board now the last thing we're going to talk about here is talking about food and some other various expenses when it comes to traveling so for food you know I see a lot of people where they'll go
out and they'll eat like three times a day when they're going on these vacations maybe it's because they're so used to cooking it back home, and they want to just splurge and spend some money and not have to worry about making food,
but there's a lot of cheaper options and
still getting some really cool cultural
experiences last night we went to some
ramen vending machine place and it was
like it was like two dollars and fifty cents for some ramen at these vending machines and I just thought it was
really really cool whereas other people
might spend a hundred dollars on a meal
I like a fancy Japanese or sushi restaurant somewhere it's just not worth it to me I really don't like spending a lot of money on food I'm not picky when it comes to it I think every like all food tastes good and I'm pretty spoiled when it comes to that so just being more willing being more open to trying places that are the cheap eats places around the world it's gonna save you a lot of money, there's so many blog post about that too of pretty much any city that you can go to I see these post about like these dollar meal challenges but sometimes that food can meet some of the best thing that you're gonna have whenever you travel so saving money on that, I don't rent cars when I travel I think renting cars is just an extra expense you got to pay for, you got to pay for parking for it, there's just too many other expenses involved with it I'll just use public transportation and then I also love
traveling light, but traveling light it creates a lot less headache and it's actually cheaper when you don't have to check bags, it's gonna be cheaper all around the board and just so much easier for yourself so hopefully you found some value in this post, if you guys have any questions let me know down in the comments section below and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
