TRAVEL TIP EDITION – @THISGIRLGIGGLES
Planning your next vacation?
See how you can stay on budget.
How do I travel on a budget? I have to be flexible. I choose my destinations depending on the season and cost of the flights. Also, I travel on a shoulder season to keep the cost down. For flights, I use Skyscanner to see which months and destinations are the cheapest that are departing from my airport.
Another crucial tip: Buy a cheap 1-way ticket to Paris (for an example) then find another cheap 1-way ticket way home from another city with a high-traffic airport, such as London or Milan; as most budget flights are under $20 USD within European countries.
Follow these steps:
#1. Go to Skyscanner or download Skyscanner App on your iPhone or Android
#2. Enter your airport and choose ‘FLEXIBLE’ on destinations:
#3. Choose ‘WHOLE MONTH’ and ‘CHEAPEST MONTH’:
#4. Now, it will show you which countries are the cheapest.
