Due to the war and shelling, Ukrainians are experiencing constant stress and tension, accompanied by the excitement of work and daily activities. But the holiday season has not been canceled, because everyone needs a vacation. However, not everyone is planning a trip, as such a vacation requires a lot of money.


But it's not just Ukrainians who think carefully about vacation planning. According to the airline aggregator Skyscanner, 69% of US citizens planning trips have not yet booked tours. And the reason for this is high prices.


According to statistics, the cost of vacation has increased this year. Airfare prices this season are up 30% compared to last summer, and the average cost of a hotel room has increased by 54% compared to 2022.


However, there are ways to save money and organize a budget vacation. In this article, we share tips that will help tourists relax without breaking the bank.


Ways to save money and have a budget vacation 


• Give preference to locations close to home. The closer the vacation spot is to you, the cheaper the fare. By not traveling abroad, you can save a significant portion of your budget.


• Plan a vacation at the end of the summer season. Skyscanner shared data showing that the most expensive flights are in June and July. At the end of August and in September, ticket prices drop significantly. In addition, August and September are considered the velvet season, because the temperature in these months is more pleasant and there are fewer tourists.


• Choose flexible dates. Of course, not everyone has a free schedule that allows you to buy tickets for any date. But if possible, don't focus on a specific date, because on certain days, airfares are reduced. According to the travel resource Thrifty Traveler, flight tickets are 20% cheaper on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.

• Think about unpopular destinations. Another surefire way to save your budget is to visit a place that is not in the tourist season. When Europe and North America are in peak season, it's winter in the southern hemisphere, so there are few tourists there. Consider Argentina, Australia, or New Zealand, which will surprise even the most demanding travelers.


• Don't neglect hot deals. "Last minute deals have always been a popular solution for tourists on a budget. However, you shouldn't put off booking your trip until the last day, as tours to popular destinations are quickly sold out. However, those who set a goal to find a good deal will be able to find it even at the last minute.


• Take out health insurance. An insurance policy for tourists is a mandatory element of vacation. Its presence is a guarantee that you will be provided with quality medical care, for which you do not need to pay. It's easy to buy insurance online: just follow the link, choose the coverage you need and enter your details. In a few minutes, you will receive a policy by mail.


• Tips to help you plan your vacation really work. According to a survey conducted by FlightsFinder, 65% of travelers use several life hacks for traveling abroad. And 16% of respondents said that they wake up earlier to take advantage of the best deals that start in the morning.
