One of the best ways how you can explore the country, but don’t get into local tours, is to do travel across the country all by yourself. Renting a car, hitchhiking or using other budget-friendly tricks will not only help you learn everything about the country but also help you stay on a budget!
If you feel inspired and can’t wait to travel by your way – bellow I am going to share five superb tips just for you. All of them will surely keep you on any budget, and all of them will gift you a chance to travel as free as you want no questions asked.
Use public transport
Definitely, one of the cheapest ways how you can travel in a country is with its public transport system. There are always a few bus or train routes, and usually, they are pretty budget-friendly for foreigners as well. In more western cultures, trains and buses are generally pretty modern too, so there won’t be any problem for you to use your laptop and enjoy free Wi-Fi. While in more exotic countries, public transport might be pretty outdated, but choosing it will be an experience alone. Trust me!
Rent a car
Surely, renting a car is also an option to choose if you want to travel on a budget and by your own way. Especially if you wish to travel on your schedule and your plan! Usually, every country has a rental service. Therefore, you can rent any kind of vehicle you would like, usually for as much as you want. Although, be aware of some hidden fees or strict rules as well, which might get a bit troubling especially if you are a young driver without a lot of experience behind the wheel.
The last tip I have considering transportation across a country is the cheapest one. And by the cheapest, I mean the free one! Hitchhiking is surely one of the craziest ways how you can travel, since you literally trust a person, you see for the first time and sit in his car. However, this way you can meet a lot of interesting people who are willing to share some amazing stories and also help you reach the destination you wish to see! So, it definitely has some advantages, but it is very important to know the country you are willing to hitchhike in, because in some countries it is considered inappropriate to travel this way, and thus, people won’t stop to give you a drive.
Another absolutely free thing you can try out while traveling all over the world and won’t even spend a dime on it is to find a local person and literally crash on his couch! The worldwide community of couch surfers is ready to provide you with a bed (or couch) you can sleep on for a few days, and usually, they do not ask anything in exchange for that. Register to this website, do research on people who are offering you a stay to avoid bad guys, and enjoy absolutely free accommodation all around the globe!
If you are planning your trip around the warm season, definitely consider camping as alternative accommodation too. Setting a camp in numerous parks of special camping sites usually is free or requires very little of your money. It also gives you tons of space and freedom as well, because you can usually set a camp wherever you are in whatever part of the world you are in. In some cases, such a simple thing like a hammock can be a perfect shelter for a few night, so invest in one and you will never have to pay for a stay (especially during summer!).
