Travel Thursdays: Financially Smart (and Fun!) Travel

AuthorAda Kozłowska

It’s a statistical fact that 9 out of 10 people cringe when they hear the word, “budget.”

Okay, well maybe that’s not a fact per se, but doesn’t it feel like the word “budget” is synonymous with “boring”? Add “budget” to “travel” and you might just convince anyone you talk to that you are no fun, no fun at all.

But it doesn’t have to be that way! If there’s one thing that bonds most travelers together, it’s the desire to travel more, to experience more, to take off on as many adventures and explorations as possible. But that doesn’t always seem attainable if you’re also doing things like working full-time, paying for a car and home, and maybe even raising a family.

That’s what travel experts are for! This week we’re sharing advice from around the web to help you find out how to travel on a budget without impeding on fun.
