Best friends are awesome. So is travel, but when your bank account is as skinny as a piece of thread, planning the trip of a lifetime on a budget can seem impossible. However, there are creative ways to save on travel. The main way is to select a city or country that is inexpensive to begin with and work from there. There are places around the globe where food is inexpensive, and you can get hotels, tour guides, and even flights without breaking the bank.

Preparation is the #1 best way to prevent overspending. Traveling for less means you can either save some money or have longer stays than you would traveling somewhere expensive like London, Iceland or Tokyo. Look for places rich in culture and natural landscapes (which are usually free to see) … and ones who's currency stacks up nicely next to the USD.
