How To Travel On A Budget
I have been travelling for about 4 years now and at a low cost! The first thing to say is there are several ways to do Low-Cost travel. I use certain websites to book transport, and I am part of some groups that allow me to stay places for free (sometimes I get paid)
BOOK YOUR FLIGHTS
Skyscanner is the most popular travel search engine I use. It’s a really good website/app that you can use to find anything you want. You can put in your location, and set your destination to ‘everywhere’ to find the cheapest places to go!

Where To Stay During This Low-Cost Travel
I normally stay in other people’s homes, cat-sitting! It’s an excellent chance to see somewhere new, go to places you wouldn’t normally think of, and live in a house/flat instead of paying for a hotel!
I travel solo, so I like to feel homely, and having something to look after, such as a cat/dog/rabbit, is a bonus for me 🙂 I mainly used trusted house-sitters as no payment is made between the sitter and the pet owner.
The site gets updated every day, and everything is insured. It is global, and as a sitter, I simply send a short email to places that appeal to me. The pet owner can contact you if they are interested in your profile, and you can schedule an interview.
I’ve travelled everywhere with this website: New York, Malaga, Zurich, London, Paris, Barcelona, Edinburgh, Garrucha, Amsterdam, Manchester, Bordeaux, Toulouse, and lots more!
Here is my trusted house sitter referral link if you want to check them out: you will get 25% off your yearly membership – I think that means that it will be approximately £90 which is a bargain IMO!
Trusted House Sitters, a worldwide house and pet-sitting site.
If you are a house sitter, you can travel anywhere in the world for free. All you have to pay for is your travel to the destination. Save money on accommodations by volunteering as a house sitter.
Since October 2000, trusted house sitters have safely matched homeowners with house sitters. With a sitter, pet owners can avoid the cost and stress of boarding.
