A travel expert shared how to have a vacation without unnecessary expenses
Vacation prices usually rise to a maximum before the peak season. However, even with the rising cost of housing, food, tickets, and entertainment, you can still have a budget trip in the height of summer. You just need to be smart about planning your trip and not be afraid to interact with the locals.
Cody Candy, CEO and founder of Bounce advised the British on how to save money on vacation. According to Express, vacation prices have risen significantly over the past year.
The expert advised choosing a time for a trip from Saturday to Monday, not from Friday to Sunday. This will help avoid not only high prices but also crowds.
Also, vacationers are not advised to go to the most popular tourist spots where the entrance fee is set at a premium. It is better to ask locals or on forums how to explore the city without spending money on tickets and excursions.
You can make a list of the sights you want to visit on your own if you take the time to plan your route. And locals will tell you the city's best-kept secrets that aren't included in guidebooks.
Moreover, it's worth asking passersby, hotel staff, or casual acquaintances for advice on establishments. City dwellers usually avoid famous tourist spots, so they will gladly tell you where you can eat cheaply and deliciously in any season.
