These are the periods you need to avoid, because the prices are very high. Everything from accommodation to restaurants and even supermarkets are sometimes even unreasonably expensive.

You need to look into and set every detail of your trip so that you do not find yourself in uncomfortable situation where you don’t have enough money to pay for certain products or services.

For instance, if a bus ride is $13, you should write it down as $15 and have the extra $2 in your pocket for emergencies.

In fact, the most important thing when travelling on a budget is to properly do your homework and take your time with the research. This way you will find plenty special offers, discounts and deals that you wouldn’t have come across any other way.
