Think Outside the Box

Forget Mexico — go to Guatemala. Skip Paris — head to Budapest. Forget Italy — see Greece (it’s really cheap!). Ditch Brazil and take on Bolivia instead — the list goes on and on. Travel counter to the prevailing trend. Zig when everyone zags. If people are going in the summer, you go in the spring or winter. Skip the popular destinations and head off the beaten path a bit.

Contrarian travel will save you a bundle of money. It’s like reverse commuting. While others heading into the city in the morning for work are stuck in traffic, you breeze the opposite way hassle free. The same is true for travel. Flights to Europe in the summer can cost over $1,000 USD. In the winter? Half that. It might not be the most ideal time to go or your favorite destination, but thinking of unusual places to go and visiting in the off-season are going to save you a lot of money.
