Tips for Managing Your Money While Traveling
Keep an Eye on Your Budget
It’s easy to lose track of what you’re spending – especially when you are traveling. You will have made an estimated budget before you leave, but the cost of day to day expenses like food, drinks, activities and more can really start to add up if you aren’t paying attention. It’s important to check on what you’re spending every week or two just to make sure that you’re still on track. You can do that by looking back through your credit card purchases and banking statement.
For example, you might notice that you’ve gotten in the habit of staying in party hostels and having drinks several nights of the week. This can be fun in moderation, but it can end up eating into your travel budget pretty quickly. You might want to adjust your habits and spend a few quieter nights, so you’ll have more money left over for other activities and attractions on your travels.
