20 Common Misconceptions About Budget Travel
4. It’s not safe
People who travel on a budget are not irresponsible; they also take their safety seriously.
Cheaper doesn’t mean more dangerous.
5. Hostels are dirty
Have I stayed in dirty hostels? Yes, but I’ve also stayed in dirty three and four-star hotels!
You have good and bad places in any type of accommodation. There are plenty of beautiful hostels out there.
6. It’s just for cheap people
No, budget travel for people who spend their money consciously.
Why stay in an expensive resort if you’re not going to make the most of it? If you’ve got extra cash, save it for the experiences that are really important to you!
