If you love to travel but need to watch your wallet, don't worry. These tips will help you out.
First, try and visit someplace off-season. Just because the calendar says it's winter doesn't mean that places like Miami, Cancun or Rio become any less pleasant. All it means is that there are less people than in the summer, and hotel rates are cheaper. The second tip is to check currency rates. If a country is lovely to visit, and its currency is lower in value compared to yours, everything in that country will be softer on your wallet.
Next, choose smaller hotels rather than huge chains. There are plenty of hotels throughout the world that don't carry a big name like Hyatt or even Holiday Inn, but are just as good or even better at much lower prices. Group tours are also a great option, with many of the amenity costs pre-packaged, and a chance to see the sights you came to visit in unique ways like equestrian or cycling tours. Finally if you want resort luxury without the heavy price tags, look at secondary destinations. These are towns near a big resort city that offer many of the same comforts without the bank-breaking rates.
