04 March 2020 | 0 comments | Posted by Jerry Law in Hit the Road

Creating a holiday on a budget

In travelling, the cost is an essential aspect that you cannot afford to overlook. Most of the times, hitting the road is expensive and needs sufficient funds for you to be able to pull through. However, you can travel fine if you are on a budget and still have an excellent time. Below are some of the way you can even explore the world while on tight resources spending minimally.

Take a road trip

Air travel is most convenient when on a trip due to speed and comfort. However, it is quite expensive and may be out of reach for many, considering the air ticket price. If your destination is not that far, you can opt for a road trip.

A rod trip may take some significant time to arrive at your predetermined stopping time though it is way affordable. If you have your family or friends with you, then he better as you can beat loneliness and also have a perfect time bonding while on the journey.

Go for a car hire service

If you do not have a car to a take on a road trip, all hope is not lost as you can go for car letting services. There are several car hire services around which give you access to their vehicles at for an agreed time at a specific cost. Apart from the hiring fee, you only pay for the fuel and some minor servicing on your journey.

Another good thing with car letting is that you get to pick your best choice of the offered vehicles. As there are several vehicles for you to select, you can go for the pick that best suits your needs.

RV’ing all the way

Still, on hitting the road, you can try out a recreation vehicle or RV as it is commonly known. The good thing with an RV is that you have your transport and accommodation needs to be sorted out as you can sleep in the van comfortably. RVs are also an excellent way to go as they are spacious and can comfortably accommodate you if you are many.

Additionally, some of them are equipped with refrigerators and kitchenettes, allowing you to have a constant supply and also able to prepare your meals. Air conditioning units also make the trip smooth, especially when you are traversing hot areas.

Stock up on food

Food is another thing that accounts for a large percentage of your funds; hence you need to have a proper budget plan accommodating it. Purchasing food at different stops may be expensive, and you may even miss some supplies. As such, it is an excellent move to stock up while travelling.

This mostly applies if you are using an RV. Some snacks always do the trick and help you keep steady if you are on the steering wheel.

Final word

If you do not have enough funds, you can use the highlighted ways to travel comfortably in the budget. For accommodation, you can go for hostels and affordable bed and breakfast joints. Public transport is another option to look into when tied up financially and remember to plan on meals.
