8. Avoid tourist areas
You can also save a lot of money when eating out if you go to smaller restaurants, on side streets for example, instead of tourist restaurants near famous sights. You probably won’t have a view of the Eiffel Tower, but you don’t have to pay extra for the location either.
Always having a snack with you is not only recommended in everyday life, but also when traveling. If you feel hungry, you don’t have to make any impulsive purchases and therefore avoid unneccessary expenses. Make sure, however, that you don’t throw a chocolate bar into your handbag or backpack on hot days because that could quickly become a sticky affair! Fresh fruit, granola bars or nuts are healthy, do not melt and give you an energy kick when you need it!
As a breakfast, lunch or dinner option, the supermarket is the perfect place for all those who like to travel on a low budget. In addition to the fact that you can buy groceries here at a good price, it is also exciting to see how the offer differs from your own supermarket at home. Perhaps you will find one or two types of candy that you have never seen before, or maybe even a cheap souvenir for your friends or family at home.
11. Bring your own water bottle & coffee mug
Bringing your own reusable water bottle is not only good for the environment, but also for your wallet. Always fill up your drinking water yourself, but be careful: it is essential to check beforehand whether you can drink the tap water in your holiday region or not! At some cafés, you also get a discount if you bring your own coffee mug – just try it out!
