Saving money on a cruise
For many people, nothing compares to the freedom and versatility of enjoying the open road in a recreational vehicle or camper.
There is certainly much to be said for taking your hotel with you wherever you go, and the savings on hotel costs can more than pay for the initial cost of an RV.
One of the things that makes an RV so popular among budget travelers is that it frees travelers from many of the issues typically associated with sticking to a travel budget.
For instance, traveling with an RV frees the traveler from having to shop early for the best deals on airfare, hotels and rental cars. That’s because the RV serves as the hotel room, and as transportation as well. Many seasoned travelers even buy a trailer which they use to tow their car, or even a pair of motorcycles, along behind them.
Of course, the RV lifestyle does have some considerations for the budget minded traveler, not the least of which is the price of gas to fuel it.
Most recreational vehicles hold a lot of gas or diesel fuel, and filling one up can result in sticker shock for many new owners. It is important to weigh the cost of fuel when determining if an RV is the right choice for you.
Traveling in a recreational vehicle or motor home is often a good choice for those who want to travel to different locations, and it may be less suited to those who visit the same location year after year.
As a matter of fact, many of those travelers who visit the same location every year find that the thing that suits their budget best is buying a vacation home. Buying a vacation home, and renting it out when it is not being used, can be a good way to both save money on lodging and build equity for the future.

When traveling on a budget, one of the most often questions is whether it is best to travel independently, making your own airfare, hotel and sightseeing reservations, or choose a package tour where everything is set up for you in advance.
There is unfortunately no easy answer to this question, as it is largely dependent on the location and the specific deals that are available. For instance, travel to European destinations are often less costly to book on your own, especially when the airlines are running specials of European airfares in the off season.
On the other hand, travel to many exotic locations, like Egypt, Morocco, Kenya, South Africa, Thailand and India, are often much less costly when booked through a package company or travel agent. That is because these tour operators often have special deals with the national airlines of these companies, and with very nice resort hotels, to provide considerable discounts in exchange for a steady flow of business.
