This is how I travel on a low budget

I will show you my travel hacks to find the best deals and to travel twice as long for the same budget.

The main cost drivers of traveling are:

1. Transport

2. Accommodation

3. Food

Therefore it is necessary to minimize these cost. I use the following search engines to pay less for transport and accommodation.

How to find the cheapest flights & hotels

My favorite search engine for flights & hotels is skyscanner due to its search capabilities (e.g. multi city, multi stop flight search). Click on the logo below to start your search.

How to find the cheapest places to stay

For accommodation I mainly use the following three search engines. Those two give you the flexibility to filter by price, category and even search by map to get the best location. I found some nice bargains on those websites.
