This one is a life hack for travelers, traveling at night saves you at least money worth of two night stays per location. This may sound like a formula, but this is cent percent true. So, when you reach your destination in the morning, you can check-in at the hotel, throw your stuff may be rest for an hour or two and begin to explore. This may come across as tiring, but at most of the times, it is not. You need to take a power nap at night while traveling and rest of the miracle nature and traveling would do! Trust me! P.S- Do not follow this rule to the places which are worth a road trip, with scenic beauty on the journey. NOPE!

2. Arrive in the morning

Hacks from a traveler's diary that will help you save your money!-3 If the journey is long (more than 12 hours, for example), always plan your trip in such a way that you reach your location early in the morning or in the afternoon. Never, ever make a mistake of reaching your destination at very early in the morning or late at night, because there are very few modes of transport available at odd hours which will charge you a lot! Like a lot, knowing that you are an outsider and that you have no other option but them.

3. Always travel with a rucksack!

Your bag can save you a lot of inconveniences and sometimes huge money, which a trolley bag can never do. Here’s how- On the first and last day of your trip you can travel around with your rucksack and check-in at the hotel at night, or check-out in the morning.

This way you can land with the cheap deals and can save your money on tourists guides.
