Personal Development, Finance, and Investing For Filipinos
An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest. Financial Education is your best investment.
Do not have enough money to go on a trip? No problem.
Nowadays, you do not have to spend a lot to be able to go on vacations and have fun. All you need is a little creativity and you will be on your way to spending a great summer vacation!
Here are some ways to stretch your limited budget when you go on a trip.
You do not have to spend a lot of money on tours to be able to go on a trip. Try to research the place where you want to go and be your own travel agent! Create a do-it-yourself (DIY) tour. With lots of information on the web today, researching is no longer a hassle. Just be a bit patient and in no time, you will have all the information you need to plan your itinerary, fix your budget, arrange accommodations and transportation, and make alternative plans if necessary.
Book In Advance And Pay Less
Take advantage of the promo fares from various airlines by booking your tickets in advance. For as low as Php 500, you can now go on domestic flights and be well on your way to see the different wonders of the Philippines! Be the first to book flights by subscribing to promo alerts of different airlines!
Go backpacking with only one bag. For you to be able to easily move around, be sure to pack only the essential things. This will also help you trim down the cost and do away with the additional expense of a check-in luggage.
Avoid exchange rate for foreign currency at the airport
Converting your currencies before travelling will avoid the costs of hefty airport fees and the hassle of exchanging your currency at your destination. This will also give you a good idea of your budget before you travel and ensure you're getting the highest possible exchange rate.
Dine like a resident
While travelling, food can sometimes become the best tourist attraction. However, this doesn't mean eating at fancy restaurants for every meal.
Avoid traveling around holidays
Fly on Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday
Rent from an off-airport car company
Ditch the taxi and travel with local transportation
Make major purchases during an off-season
Beware of the hidden hotel service charges
Don't forget key items for your trip
Carry your own food. Avoid airport cafes and restaurants
