2. Stay away from popular tourist spots (unless they are on your â€˜must-seeâ€™ list). If you can go off the beaten track with your destinations, things can be cheaper to see and do and your cultural experiences will be richer. 3. Try camping. Not only is it the cheapest form of accommodation itâ€™s a great way to get up close and personal to nature. Itâ€™s the best way to see National Parks and Heritage listed areas. 4. Look for special travel offers (or packages). But make sure you check everything that they include - and donâ€™t include. 5. Invest in a travel pass where you are able. Most developed countries have a rail or bus transport system where you can obtain day, week or monthly passes that will get you around cheaply. 6. Get a work permit if you aim to gain employment while traveling overseas. Working can help subsidize places that arenâ€™t so cheap, such as Europe and Australia. 7. Look for good exchange rates on the dollar. This may help you decide which country to travel to. 8. Think about shortening your visit to destinations that are expensive and increasing your length of stay in cheaper places. 9. Where possible use your credit card. The exchange rate is better. 10. When staying in a hotel, avoid paying for â€˜extrasâ€™. Donâ€™t touch anything from the honor bar. Donâ€™t watch the in-house movies and donâ€™t use the hotel phone. And try not to use room service too much!
