粉絲們常常困擾著想出國玩卻又擔心預算吃緊嗎?

其實...也有不少省錢的方式可以玩得更開心喔!

網路作家 Josh Kinney 與大家分享,

在世界各地旅行時到底該如何省錢又玩得開心? 

這些超實用的資訊相信能為你的下一趟旅程省下一大筆費用  

 

Here are ten tips for traveling on the cheap.

 

1. Number one (and this is THE most important):

Meet people. Make friends. Build connections.

Collect stories and experiences.

Go to Instameets. Network at coffee shops, bars, parties, etc. If you’re in college, make friends from different parts of the country or the world. Visit their homes and cities with them, don’t be shy or afraid to step out and make a friend. 90% of my travels are because I just so happened to know someone or know someone who knows someone that’s in the particular place I’m interested in going.

 

第一也是最重要的一點:

走出去認識新的人、結交新的朋友、建立人與人之間的連結、蒐集不同的故事和經驗!

小編說  這真的是旅行最珍貴的回憶!

 

 

2. Find a volunteer or mission trip through a nonprofit or church.

Want to go to Africa, Southeast Asia, South America or a city in Europe? Go serve some people you don’t know. You’ll get to use your gifts and talents, meet a ton of new people, friends and connections for your future travels (see number 1) and you’ll get to experience the place you want to go, all for free. Fundraising pays for volunteer trips. The more connections and friends you make in life, the more people you’ll have to help fund your venture. Just get the ball rolling and watch how it builds over the years. GoFundMe.com is a fantastic resource.

 

不妨試試看到當地服務,透過非營利機構或教會找志工活動。

如果你願意花時間搜尋,其實還是能找到免費的服務性質旅行

運用自己的能力去幫助需要的人能讓你感到成就,同時還能認識一群來自世界各地的朋友!

推薦平台:GoFundMe.com

 

 

3. AirBnB, Couch-Surfing and Hotels.com – use these!

Hotels.com gives you some great deals. Write a review and get a discount. Book with it a handful of times and you’ll get a free stay at a hotel of your choice. AirBnB and couch-surfing are the millennials tools to traveling even cheaper. They also provide you with new friends and connections, again! (See number one).

 

現在網路上有各種方便的平台幫助你搜尋適合的住宿!

推薦平台:

Hotels.com能為你網羅所有符合價位的空房 (Hostelworld.com等其他大網站也有很多的選擇)

Airbnb沙發衝浪  :則是更便宜的住宿方式,可以認識許多當地人

 

 

4. Megabus, CheapoAir and renting a car:

Megabus is a cheap way to get to a ton of places. The buses are big, spacious, have Internet and make several pit-stops. You never know whom you might meet on the Megabus (see number one).

每個大城市都會有廉價巴士可以搭乘,像是在美國非常知名的Megabus常出現5塊美金以下的超便宜票價讓你在兩個城市間移動。

 

Cheapoair  will narrow down(壓縮) your flights; give you alternative and flexible dates and airports to ensure the cheapest route possible. Example, if you live in Philly and want to fly to Orlando, don’t limit yourself to flying out of Philadelphia International Airport. Try Trenton to Jacksonville or Newark, JFK, La Guardia, BWI, Dulles, Regan, Wilmington or Atlantic City to Orlando, Jacksonville, and Fort Lauderdale. You might be surprised at the deal you come across.

現在廉價航空相當發達,而且一天到晚都有促銷票,

也有許多比價網如Skyscanner讓你一次搜尋到最便宜的機票。

如果很早就知道自己要出去旅行,提早購買機票、車票也是讓你省下一大筆錢的好方式

 

 

5. Study maps, know your route, plan accordingly for weather and study the history of where you’re going or passing through. Don’t just sit back for the ride, learn, grow and expand your knowledge and experience. Come back a different person having learned something amazing.

 

學習如何看地圖為自己規劃路線,知識是無價之寶,學來的東西終生都會跟著你,因為旅行讓我們有更多機會去做平常不不做的事,也會是你最大的收穫之一!

小編說   身為路痴的小編也開始學會自己摸索囉!

 

 

 

6. Groupon and Yelp.

Not only can you find good travel packages, you can also find awesome food deals and specials on Groupon. Use Yelp to find where you want to eat based on your preferences and or your finances. Yelp has never steered me wrong. But of course, ask the locals, they will know best and you might meet a new connection. (see number one).

 

Groupon不僅是在自己國家可以使用的省錢妙招,到外地旅行時也是讓你省錢遊玩的好方式!

推薦平台:

Yelp:可以幫助你依據喜好及價位搜尋適合的餐廳

小編說   不過~向當地人開口詢問也是很棒的方式喔!

 

 

7. Live in community with the people you travel with. Cover each other’s expenses in exchange for something else. Food, hotels, couches, volunteering to drive or sleep on the floor for one night is all its own form of currency(貨幣).

用你有的任何技能幫自己換來許多免費的東西!

小編說   增進自己的技能是很重要的,這時就能派上用場了吧!

 

8. Expect the unexpected. When things go wrong, don’t become disappointed. Your plan might not be the best one. There might be a better one that’s waiting to happen. You might look back in retrospect(回顧) and say, “I am so glad my plan didn’t work out, otherwise I wouldn’t have met, discovered, went to, learned, etc…” (This has happened to me countless times and I’m SO thankful for it!)

旅行中難免會發生許多無法預期的事,這些插曲可能將會帶你到更好的地方、遇見更多有趣的事呢

9. Don’t be picky or set high standards or expectations.

Learn to actually see the world. Don’t stay at the Hilton(希爾頓酒店); book an AirBnB with a local or a motel that’s not a chain. Don’t you dare eat at Applebee’s or the Hard Rock Cafe, go for the local spots, the mom and pop restaurants that have been there for years, the hole-in-the-wall dive bars and venues. Find the hometown rave.

旅行中不要做個挑剔的人!與其住在高檔的飯店,不如睡一晚當地人的家,吃那些連鎖餐廳不如找間有點破舊的傳統小店享受道地美食,放下心中的成見與原則,去做那些你原本不敢做的事會讓你發現其實這個世界比自己想的還美好

 

 

10. You can find adventure without having to go far and without spending any money. There are places right around you that you probably don’t know about. From abandoned buildings to nearby woods, parks, beaches, small towns or big cities, go explore something or somewhere new in your own backyard. Maybe that little town you pass off the expressway every day on your morning commute has a park, store, restaurant or cool building you would’ve never known about otherwise had you not decided to take a detour(繞行的路).

不一定要去那些知名逛街大道或花大錢的遊樂園,很多時候在路上漫步就能讓你發現新的景點,那些可愛充滿異國風情的小房子、陽光下的公園與遊戲的孩子們、住家附近的廢墟都可以是旅行最美的風景!

小編說   小編發現亂走亂逛反而能有更多不同的驚喜呢
