Travel cheap and smart: Discover our 4 tips...

If you want to travel better without spending more money, everything is in the organization:

Off-season travel

"Off-season" means to go out of school holidays. Indeed, transport, hotels and restaurants are two to three times cheaper than during the high season. If you have the possibility to take your leave outside the holiday periods, you will benefit from a much more advantageous low season rate. However, care should be taken not to travel to a country when celebrating local holidays. They may attract a large tourist and local flow and spoil the intimacy you covet so much.

Rent a pocket-sized 3G+ WiFi box

For those who want to stay connected to the Internet and social networks at a low cost, choose to rent a pocket-sized WiFi box. MY WEBSPOT is a very advantageous solution that avoids the need for a 4-digit telephone bill when returning from your trip. It's the new way to travel light and stay connected to the 3G+ or 4G LTE network anywhere in the world. While avoiding the off-package, it allows you to connect up to 5 devices by opting for the "World" package (you have to count on a rate of 9.90€ per day). For the "Europe" package (at a rate of €6.40 per day) you can connect up to 10 devices. This way you can stay in touch with your loved ones during your holiday, at no extra cost. The single rate includes the rental of the WiFi box and unlimited access to the Internet.


Cooking yourself

This is the ideal option if you don't want to spend too much on food during the trip. If you don't have a kitchen, fall back on streetfood. Trailers, very popular in Southeast Asia, allow you to eat your fill for only a few tens of cents.

Another trick is to work while being housed and fed at the same time. All you have to do is work a few hours in exchange for a small room, half board or a little money to eat. This way, we can explore the world at a lower cost!

One night in a local house or couchsurfing

This one is for students or individuals looking for adventures that are looking for cheap travel! If you have a small budget, the solution is ideal! The concept is to spend the night free of charge with a resident of the region visited. Apart from its low cost, the principle of couchsurfing is to be in close contact with a native of the country. This promises you a unique experience. You will also benefit from a safe roof for the night. It is possible to stay in the same place or move from one roof to another during the stay.

In addition to couchsurfing, the must-see tent offers you nomadic and transportable accommodation around the world. In the meantime, don't forget to bring the necessary items with you in your toilet bag.
