  • How to Save Money on Travel (Without Sacrificing Insurance) I: The Airport

    Filed Under: Blogging

These days, international travel is gaining in popularity. It’s no longer just Mexico and Canada that people talk about when they say they’ve been abroad, it’s far-off places like China, Australia, and Europe. Everyone’s looking for the best experience for minimum cost, and unfortunately, travel insurance is sometimes the first casualty.

There is, however, no need to cut down on your safety to save a few bucks. Here are some tips to save money on travel. When traveling abroad, one of the major expenses is the airfare. Here’s where some creative thinking might come in useful.

If you live in Boston, for example, flights to nearby airports might have great deals, in order to attract some travelers. Airports within an hour of where you live are good airports to choose, especially if you can get friends to drop you off and pick you up.

Also, eschew airport parking if you’re traveling by yourself, or with one other person, especially for international trips. Often, hiring a cab to and from the airport, or even using an airport shuttle service one way will help cut costs.

Travel tip: If planning to drive home after an international trip, take into consideration that you will be tired and probably jet-lagged. If you’ve visited a country where the traffic’s on the left side of the road, you might also be a bit disoriented.
