City breaks are moments where I can save my sanity due to saturation living in a boring little town. Of course I always prepare for that moment and that means I prepare a suitcase full of clothes and everyday necessities. To go to the nearest big city I prefer to use a train, I just sit; sleep, and when I wake up I’ve reached the destination. City breaks are quite identical to the waste of money but in this article I will try to break that myth.
Cut out spending on tickets
Some people tend to avoid a first-class train ride because they think that totally they will simply waste money for it. The actual situation is not what they think it is. The first thing to consider is comfort. You go to city breaks of course in order to give yourself convenience therefore we should not forget this factor. Ordering in advance long before departure is my way to pick up tickets for fewer prices. Traveling outside the weekend is the best time for it.
Utilize discount cards
Discount cards are what you need to save on your travel expenses. With discount cards then you can get discounts for some items, instead of having to pay one by one item you buy. Paying for any unpaid expenses can drain your pockets and that’s why discount cards are created. Discount cards do not only affect a single variable such as transportation costs but also give you savings on spending to visit various attractions in one city. To get discount cards, surfing the Internet is the best way to search. You can get a variety of discount cards each of which is devoted to one city only. For example you can buy Barcelona Passes, Amsterdam Passes, Paris Passes, and so forth. Using these cards you can enjoy the many exciting tourist attractions in those cities without making your “pockets leak.” For more info you can visit http://www.tripindicator.com/welcome/discount-card.html.
Download online magazines
Remember that buying magazines in a destination city can drain your expenses. Now is the Internet age and therefore you can download various magazines online for free and this way saves you money.
Do not be easily tempted to buy souvenirs
Many people are easily tempted when they are on city breaks. City breaks are holidays that offer a variety of unique things from a city. Buying typical souvenirs in the destination city can drain your budget and therefore resist the desire to buy is the best solution. Again, you can get similar souvenirs by buying them from online stores.
Looking for cheap lodging
You can look for cheap lodging a month before departure day. Now many companies are offering cheap lodging that is reserved for backpackers and most of them are offered online. Of course this is a great opportunity for you to save your expenses without reducing the quality of your holiday. Trust me! By staying in budget hotels you will not detract from the quality of your holiday. Of course you will spend more of your time outside, right?
Rent a car online (and with the cashbacks)
If you do not bring your own car and decide to rent at the destination then you should rent online. By renting online then you can receive various options and therefore you can choose a car that fits your budget and needs. This way looks trivial but in reality it can save you a lot of money as you (by ordering from reputable sites) can get benefit of various cashback types. We take what Tripindicator offers as one sample; the company offer up to 3% and 5% cashbacks for anyone signed in (to the company’s site). Curious of?
