Once you’re in a country, you can search for shorter flights on search engines such as Expedia and Momondo and choose budget airlines such as Ryanair in Europe and Tiger Airways in Asia and Australia. Plan to spend more time in cheaper destinations such as Thailand and South Africa than in places that will cost you more.
Having to pack and unpack, deal with many airports or bus terminals, boarder crossings and visa issues, can get you down. So slow down, and take more in. That way, you won’t suffer from burn out, and you’ll really get a feel for a place and learn about the cheap places to eat and cheap things to do.
In my early twenties, I was very good about keeping a copy of my passport in a separate bag from my actual passport. Then I got lazy. Recently, a friend of mine lost her passport at the airport. She was told that if she had brought a copy of it and extra passport photos they would have let her travel. Since she didn’t, she was forced to forfeit a $2,000 flight and a week in Europe. I now carry a copy with me.
A few important items should always go in your carry-on. A swimsuit is also a good idea if you are going on a beach vacation. You can buy most of these things if your bag gets lost, but having them in your carry-on will save you money and time if your luggage gets lost in transit. It’s a good idea to ask about the price before you hop on a bus, guagua, or other form of public transportation. We learned our lesson in the Dominican Republic.
