We all have our favorite travel tips and tricks, so we’ve gathered the best travel tips and tricks to help you save money, avoid mistakes, and travel like a pro!

⋅ Eat local food ⋅

Taste a bit of everything when you travel, even if you have no idea what it is. Trying new food isn’t scary, and you’ll build your confidence up as you fall in love with more and more things. Eat street food from vendors with big lines out front. Eating street food is an awesome way to save money while you travel!

⋅ Take lots of photos ⋅

Photos of the beautiful places you visit are great, but they’re not all that different to the ones everyone else has taken there, too. Photos with you in them are special and they’ll mean a lot more to you when you look back at them. Take plenty of photos of yourself with other people too, they’ll be more important than your postcard shots later. You may only see these places & meet these people once in your lifetime. Remember them forever with plenty of photos!

⋅ Bring extra camera battery ⋅

There’s nothing worse than being in the middle of a perfect photo opportunity, but powerless to capture it because of a dead camera battery! Picking up a tiny, lightweight charger for your phone is a good idea. Also, whenever you see a spare power socket, charge your devices. You’ll wish you’d taken the opportunity to when you eventually run out of battery.

⋅ Wear and bring good travel shoes ⋅

You’re going to be walking a lot when you’re traveling, especially if you want to save money. So invest in a good pair of travel shoes that are lightweight, multi-use, and very comfortable.

⋅ Book the cheapest flight ⋅

Flying can often be one of the most expensive parts of an international trip. But with practice, you can learn how to book super cheap flights and save tons of money. Open an incognito browser window when it’s time to make your booking. I’ve seen prices gradually increase for flights as I kept checking them, only to watch them drop when I used an incognito window.

⋅ Wear sunscreen ⋅

Wear sunscreen every day, even if it’s cloudy out, or you’ll regret it later because you can’t sleep — or worse, end up with skin cancer or other problems.
