Traveling on a Budget - Transportation!

Traveling in a new city doesn't have to break the bank! Check out some of these tips for some great ways to explore your surroundings!

Rail, Metros and Subway
– If you are traveling to a city that has a subway system, such as New York, San Francisco or Washington, DC, the subway is a great and inexpensive way to get around. Daily and weekly passes and usually be purchased and great rates.

Night Train and Flights – If the transportation is going to be long, consider traveling at night to save money on accommodation and many hours of time. When you arrive at your destination you'll be well rested and ready to explore in a new place.

Take the Slower Transportation
– If flying is too short for you to take advantage of sleeping while traveling, take a bus ride. When you are sleeping, you won’t mind that the bus ride is 7 hours.

Avoid Taxis and Welcome Public Transportation
– Tourist usually take taxis since it’s the laziest way to get from point A to B. Consider the subway or buses because it’s sometimes easier and it is much cheaper. They can also immerse you in the culture of the city you are visiting.

Driving is Not Bad
– Want to take that 1 hour flight? With airport security and all the hassle of airport inefficiencies, you might as well drive there (it takes just as long and it’s less expensive). Once you get there, having a car is also much easier than needing to take your bags everywhere.
