Many factors, such as how much time you have to prepare for your trip and how much money you have, must be weighed in order to arrive at an accurate assessment of your upcoming excursion. To help you get started, we’ve put together a comprehensive guide to travelling the world. From the very first steps of trip planning to money-saving strategies for while you’re away, this manual for around the world travel has you covered.
Worrying about money is asking for trouble, so don’t do it!
This is probably the most vital piece of guidance we can give you when going on a trip. Avoid going into debt by not spending more than you can afford on a holiday. The best holiday in the world isn’t worth anything if you come home to a pile of bills instead of fond memories.
Take Advantage of Local Guide Services
We highly recommend hiring a tour guide when you travel. When you pay for a local guide’s services, you’re putting money into the local economy. This helps the local families out by cutting out the middleman. Using local talent also reduces costs.
Always Insist on Purchasing Travel Insurance
Before you leave, make sure you have travel insurance. A disaster can happen anywhere at any time.
Make an Application for a Rewards Credit Card Travel
Using a credit card with valuable rewards can help you save money on travel expenses. The points can be accumulated quickly and used for things like free stays, room upgrades, and later check-out times.
Currency in the form of smaller bills
Whether you’re in Africa, the Caribbean, South America, or Europe, you can use the dollar as currency. Because the US dollar is the most widely accepted currency worldwide, it’s wise to keep some on hand at all times in case of an unexpected expense or emergency.
Debit and credit cards are accepted
Before you leave on your trip, make sure to notify your bank and credit card companies that you will be away. If they suddenly find out you made a purchase in another country, they may freeze your credit cards.
Get a City Card
A city pass is a must-have for any trip to a major city. We buy them to save money by visiting multiple attractions at once. We recommend getting a City Pass if you’re going to be in a city for more than a couple of days and want to see the major attractions there.
Explore the city at no cost by taking advantage of the available walking tours. One of our favourite things to do as travel experts is to inform people about the many free walking tours that can be found in almost any city in the world.
It can be cheaper of booking internal flights simultaneously as booking your RTW ticket, but with the world-wide increase of low-cost airlines, you may find it better to buy them separately as you go.
