20 Common Misconceptions About Budget Travel
13. You only travel by bus
Not necessarily. Though buses tend to be cheaper, sometimes it makes more sense to pay a bit more for a flight and avoid a rough 15-hour bus journey. Like I said, it’s all about balance.
14. You have to avoid expensive cities
You’re probably going to take that cost into consideration when planning the trip. So you know it’s expensive, but it’s not a problem if it’s within the budget. Budget travel is all about planning.
15. You just eat sandwiches
We may make and eat our sandwiches most days, but just because it’s a lot cheaper than buying lunch every day. It doesn’t mean we never eat out! We just save our cash for the restaurants we really want to try.
