Staycations became everyone’s favorite form of travel last year, and they’re not going away anytime soon. They usually come with a lower price tag than international trips, but you can make them even more budget-friendly with these useful tips.

Free Accommodation

One of the perks of traveling in your home country is that you probably have family members and friends outside of your home town. If they’re willing to host you, you can save a lot of money on accommodation fees, but camping is also an option when you’re exploring nature.

Shorter Trips

The less time you spend on the road, the less money you’re going to waste. You can embark on brief trips on the weekends, and explore nearby places. If your staycation destination is more than two or three hours away from your home town, leave it for some other times when you can take a couple of free days off.

Splitting Expenses

Traveling with a group of people is more exciting and fun, but it’s also a good way to save some extra cash. You’ll have someone to split the cost of gas, food, and logging when you’re not traveling on your own, saving a lot of money along the way.
