Traveling is a lot of fun, but it can also become an expensive hobby, especially for those that frequently travel internationally. Hotel rates, airfare, the cost of remaining connected, all of these things can quickly add up, especially during the holiday season. Thankfully, there are several ways to save some money here and there.
Track airfare with multiple tools. Google Flights has quickly emerged as a popular method of finding flights at a discount, but you may wish to consider using more than one tracker. Hopper is an app that can also provide alerts when prices drop, and there is really no reason why you should stick to just one app.
Purchase Wi-Fi before your flight. If you’ve been on a domestic flight, you’ve probably noticed that Wi-Fi is not cheap. In most cases, you can save a few dollars if you purchase your Wi-Fi access prior to your flight.
Save on your vehicle rental with Turo. Turo works similarly to Airbnb in that it is based around individuals versus companies. With Turo, you can rent a vehicle from an individual, know exactly what vehicle you’re going to be using, and potentially pay significantly less than you would with a rental car company.
Take a SIM card with you before you leave. If you’ve ever tried using a mobile phone abroad, you know it can become expensive, especially the exorbitant roaming rates. If you have an unlocked, GSM friendly phone and a global SIM card, you should be good to go.
