1. Exchange of money.

Yes, that's right. Your bank card carries the best exchange rates, so avoid carrying a lot of cash with you. Pay by card or withdraw cash from an ATM when needed.

2. Travel during the day.

The night is sleep time. But what if you can sleep and save money per night? By taking an overnight train or bus, you can get where you need to go and save your budget.

3. Rule of 6 quarters.

The food is usually twice as expensive and the portions are half as much as 6 blocks from the popular tourist spot. Get away from the crowded tourist attractions to enjoy something more authentic at a lower cost. Local street food markets are always the best option.

4. Ignoring sharing.

You've probably heard of home-sharing services like Couchsurfing, but there are also food-sharing apps like BlaBlaCar to help you find locals and other travelers heading to the same destination as you.

5. Booking in advance.

Early booking will probably work if you have a tight schedule that you need to stick to. Otherwise, it makes sense to avoid booking in advance as much as possible. This will allow you to stay in the place you like longer and you will probably get a discount from the hotel. And if you really want to leave early, you don't have to pay a forfeit.

6. Run into pickpockets.

There is nothing worse than being in a foreign country, thousands of kilometers from home, without documents, credit cards, or telephones. Avoid wearing expensive designer clothes and bags unless you want to attract pickpockets. Divide your valuables into different bags, leave something in the hotel safe, consider buying a special money belt, and always keep an eye on your belongings.
