Ideas for a Budget Travel Vacation

All Airline companies want you to think that you need to spend thousands of dollars to fly across the globe just to have a fun and relaxing vacation. This cannot be farther away from the truth because there are ways to have a cheap vacation close to your home and it can still prove to be the best experience ever. There is only a few hours of travel time and low cost of expense with no hassle with airlines or taxes. Here are some ideas for budget trips that you need to consider if you want to go on a budget vacation.


This is best for people who love being one with nature and don’t like spending tons of money on a grand vacation. Camping will save you money especially when it comes to accommodation and if you have all the gear that you need, the cost of your vacation will be very low. Camping helps you get away from traffic, your job and other people that you don’t want to spend your day with. You can choose to go on a hike or lay in your tent while reading a book.
  You can also spend quiet time with your friends and family or you can choose to create a bonfire and bond with them during the nighttime.

Biking Trips

This is another budget idea if you want to go on a vacation and own a good bike. What you need to do is to pack some
lightweight suitcases and do some camping along the way or stay in hotels so you don’t have to bring a tent or a sleeping bag. Choose trails where there is no traffic so you can take your time and not be battling traffic. Always make sure that you have all the gears that you need for biking before going on this trip.


This is a slang that refers to sleeping over at people’s couches and is supported by a worldwide organization to help people travel without spending anything on accommodation. If you choose to do some couch surfing, you will also meet the people who live in the house and interact with them instead of just travelling alone without meeting anyone. Couchsurfing is fun if you want a low cost adventure with a good bed to sleep in every night.

House Exchange

This is a popular idea that began years back. The main idea is to trade your house with another house in a foreign country for a week or more. This will save you money for accommodation by not checking in to expensive hotels. Staying at a certain place for a long period of time will help you get to know the place better and create more chances of you meeting people who live there. Make sure that the person you decide to exchange your house with is a friend that you know and will take care of your house like you do his.
