Traveling abroad is, for many of us, the one hobby that’s most worth the time and money we put into it. Here are a few useful tips to help you make the most of your available resources whenever you travel.
1. Buy tickets to various attractions in advance
Many venues such as museums, art galleries and even festivals offer discounts or special deals when you buy tickets in advance so make sure you check out all the options online when you plan your trip. Moreover you’ll no longer have to queue at the entrance so this will also save you time and ensure you take full advantage of your holiday time.Lastly, don’t forget to check out which attractions are free to visit in your chosen destinations. Most big cities offer free access to museums, galleries and parks!
2. Discover the city with a free city tour
Available in most tourist cities, free tours are a great way to start your trip because they put everything in perspective. Your guides will also be great at recommending good places to eat and drink, while the tour itself is a wonderful opportunity to meet new people and interact with other tourists from many cultures, something that you wouldn’t normally do when you have your nose buried deep in a city map.
3. Use a dedicated long distance calling app
Tell it when it happens! Share every discovery and news with your family and friends at home, right when it’s fresh or sync with those back home for last minute travel tips. Whatever your calling need, there are many great long distance calling apps for your smartphone out there. If you’re using an iPhone or an Android smartphone, we recommend Nobel App International Calls that comes with special bulk minutes deals at great prices for every destination check out their Mustang and Elephant deals. To make the biggest savings, you can call using Wi-Fi, but if you don’t have access to a connection, it’s best to select your local access number in advance when you have an internet connection or before you depart.
4. Explore the city of foot
In most cities you can explore the city on foot instead of taking the public transport or a taxi, as long as your shoes are comfortable. Even though the distances may seem big on a map, going from one attraction to another makes the miles pass without a notice. Plus it’s great for physical exercise!
5. Ditch the restaurant and dig in the genuine street food
Street food reflects the local cuisine a whole lot more than a restaurant does and it will be a good excuse to discover the local markets for a more colorful experience! Hit the local markets and save time you’d spend otherwise sitting in a restaurant chair, and don’t forget: local markets are great for some good people-watching, too!
That’s it! We hope you’ll find these tips useful on your next trip. Bon voyage!
