Travel portals will either hate me or love me for this

Travel portals will either hate me or love me for this Jeep Safari


Love to Travel

Do you like traveling? Do you like to go to new places? Is traveling your hobby? If answer to any of these questions is yes, then this post is for you. Leave everything you were doing, give full attention to my post , it's for your own benefit . 



Travel New Places


I am a vivid traveler, I travel every month. I also encourage people to travel. I haven't come across a single person who doesn't like traveling. Many people told me they want to travel but couldn't travel because of one of the three reasons... no time, no money, no time  and money. For the first reason... no time... trust me everyone has time, it is all about organizing your priorities. For once keep travel as your top priority and recheck your calendar. You will be amazed. Dear so called family people busy with kids, family responsibilities bla bla bla, give at least 7 days to yourself out of the 365 days in a year. Trust me, you won't regret it.


Second reason why people don't travel is... no money. This is a genuine reason. That's why I want to share my ideas, which work for me, hope it works for you too. I am not a super rich gal, still I manage to travel every month without making a dent in my pocket. Many people asked me how do I manage to travel so much . How does your company gives you so many leaves? Let me tell you, I am a career oriented woman, for me work comes first. If you see my leave balance you will be surprised, I rarely touch my privileged leaves. What I do is I plan my trips months in advance. In the beginning of the year I will have the year holiday list in front of me. I will club weekends with holiday dates wherever possible. If required I take one or two days leaves but I avoid taking leaves. Next thing is list down the places you want to travel. Once you have the dates and places to travel, next is booking flights/trains/buses. One piece of advice... Stay away from holiday packages offered by many travel portals and agents. Make your own customized holiday package and you will save lots of money. Trains and buses normally don't come expensive and if you book train in advance you will easily get seats. For super saver flight deals, follow below tips and tricks.
  • Subscribe to all travel portals promotional emails. They share good deals over emails and SMS.
  • Book your flights 2 months ahead.
  • Don't book a flight by directly going to travel portals. Google your travel queries. You may end up finding some unexplored promo codes or coupons which offer heavy discounts or cash backs.  
  • Book your flights near the end of the month and not on weekends . 
  • Never book your flights on or near festive dates like Diwali, Christmas etc .
Hope the above tips are useful for you. Unfortunately I have no idea on how to travel at zero cost. You still need money to travel. Don't give yourself "no money" as an excuse. Now is the time to travel. If you are able to read this story from your smartphone or computer, trust me you have money to travel. Happy Traveling!!!
