As I said in my previous post – How to Travel on a Post-Grad Budget, Part 1 – it is 180,000% possible to travel on a post-grad budget, and I will continue to defend this statement in a manner that is borderline aggressive.
Here are four more tips to help you save while traveling:
PART 2: AT YOUR DESTINATION
1. DON’T BLOW YOUR MONEY ON FOOD.
During my flight over to New Zealand, I was a fool and bought dinner at LAX, spending ten dollars and fifty cents ($10.50!!!) for two (TWO) scrambled eggs, which would have been $16 New Zealand dollars, a.k.a. worth a meal far more satisfying than two (TWO!!) scrambled eggs at my final destination.
Don’t do stupid things like that with your money. Bring snacks with you to eat at the airport. Get a free cup of water at Starbucks or bring an empty refillable water bottle that you can fill at a water fountain once you’re through security. Just don’t spend $10.50 for two (TWO!!!!!) scrambled eggs at the airport.
(P.S. My personal blog has made the leap from PenPointed Noise to a snazzy new Maps & Mochas so that I can write on more than just music and eventually PenPointed Noise will be laid to rest. See Maps & Mochas here.)
