20 Common Misconceptions About Budget Travel
7. You budget only if you’re broke
Quite the contrary! We just don’t like to waste our money. Sometimes, you can find a cheaper restaurant just by walking a few meters from a tourist spot.
8. You have to share accommodations
Nearly all hostels have private rooms if that’s more your style.
And to be fair, if you’re a couple, it’s generally cheaper to book a double room in a hotel anyway.
9. You don’t visit expensive countries
Nowadays there are enough tools to travel cheaply that you can easily visit any country on a budget. You can always do some couch surfing or housesit, for instance.
