Use calling apps
You may be on vacation, but need to make an urgent call. But don’t make it – international calls can cost hundreds of dollars, especially if you like to talk. Use free instant messaging apps, like WhatsApp, instead. Buy some data from your phone carrier or a data-only SIM card at the airport or the hotel may even sell them at the front desk.
If at all people can’t afford OYO then save on the cost of a hotel by opting to crash on someone’s couch instead! Travellers get to meet locals and crash at their place for free. Your host may even show you around the city. In return, you can buy them a small gift, which is far cheaper than a hotel suite.
Use cheaper Airlines/Trains
Airfare/Luxurious trains can be ridiculously expensive, but travellers don’t need to rely on the major carriers. Budget airlines or pocket-friendly medium like trains are just as comfortable, but cost much less.
Use local transportation
Once you arrive at your spot, you may be tempted you to take a cab or an Uber, but this can become pricey really quickly. This way you save money and can explore the city like a local. Also, a cabbie might try to rip you off, a bus driver/Auto/Local trains will never leave you in pain!!
Exchange your currency
International travellers need foreign currency, but this can be pricey. This is because purchasing currency at your local bank adds extra charges. Luckily you can save money on exchange rates by using currency exchange companies. They have better rates than the banks, especially for large amounts.
Use your credit card
