Exploring the world when you’re young and broke doesn’t come cheap, especially if you want to witness the nightlife of each new city you visit. Between entrance fees and drinks, expenses will pile up pretty quickly, and our brief guide will help you keep them on the lower side.

Right Spot

Not all clubs are created equal, and the ones that charge entrance fees won’t always fit into your budget. It’s also a good idea to check the reviews online and avoid places that have a history of scamming tourists.

Local Tips

If you’re not sure where to go, asking the locals for advice is always a good idea because they won’t struggle to recommend amazing scam-free clubs.

Stay Close By

The clubs you’re going to visit should be located in close proximity to your accommodation so you won’t have to spend a fortune on a pricy taxi ride.


Drinks at popular clubs tend to be pretty overpriced, so it’s a good idea to do a pre-game at your accommodation or a nearby bar and have a drink or two for cheap before heading to the club.

Drink in Moderation

Drinking is usually an essential part of going out, but you should do it in moderation. You’ll save money, be safer and more alert, and avoid annoying hangovers if you don’t go overboard with the booze.
