How much money do I need? How can I make/save money while traveling?

1.     Budget

Before departing you need to decide what amount of money you are willing to spend during your trip. If you do this, you will have a better view on your spending's and there will be less chance for some unwanted financial surprises. Also, if you have a budget, you can work towards this budget, this can give you some extra motivation to find work.

2.     Work

If you recognize that your budget will be insufficient for the time you want to stay, or if you want to stay longer but the budget is low, then you need to search for work and this can be a big challenge. It's always a good idea to look out for jobs before you leave. This way, you have multiple options and you're better prepared with list of contacts. This part can give you a lot of stress. Work as a volunteer is easier to find.

3.     Unexpected situations

Our path will always cross some unexpected situations. Because of this you need some savings, insurances like a travel and health insurance.

4.     Adjust to the local lifestyle

If you're a budget traveler, you need to be able to live poorly. With that I mean that you must be able to spend money only on necessary things like food, a place to sleep. A lot of people will travel in luxury, and they will say I just want to enjoy life. That's okay, but then you're a tourist and not a traveler. A traveler is someone who wants this lifestyle for a longer time. Then the only option is to live with less and adjust to the local lifestyle.
