How To Save For Trip To USA


A trip to US may get very expensive. From paying for US visa application fees to booking flight tickets to buying travel insurance for USA online, expenses can just keep mounting up, putting a dent in your wallet. Hence, it is crucial to plan your trip smartly so that you do not end up blowing all the money on just one tour.

So those who are on a budget, read below our little hacks that might help you save money on your next trip to U.S.A.


  • Accommodation

Accommodation is going to be one of your major expenses on your trip to the U.S.A. But the good news is that there are several options available that can help you cut down on your lodging expense. If you are traveling solo then you can consider options like hostels and other local apps to arrange a homestay or lodges. These options might sound shady at first, but they represent the ultimate American hipster style living. Look up for their reviews and ratings before you book anything.

If you are traveling with family, you may not wish to explore the above and rightly so. In that case, consider booking BnBs as they are reasonable and convenient. Apart from that, you can even look for small hotels and motels which although non-luxurious, have all the basic amenities.


  • Food

While making a budget, you often underestimate the amount of money to be spent on food. Therefore, planning in advance and checking for discounts can help save you a significant amount of money. If you want to save money on food, then book hotels that offer free breakfast or dinner. This way you can save on any one meal of the day.

Food can get expensive here especially at tourist’s spots. So, when you are going out for sightseeing pack some snacks like granola bars, chips, fruits, or any other non-perishable items that you can eat in-between meals. This way you will avoid eating at restaurants and cafes.


  • Transportation

You can save money if you travel during the low season. Additionally, you can even save money by downgrading your mode of transportation for intercity travel.  For instance, instead of flying to a destination, consider driving it down or perhaps board a train. You can even get great discounts on train-travel when you book them months in advance. So, if your itinerary is fixed then book your local conveyance tickets in advance.


Now that you know how to save on your trip to U.S.A, go on and start making those bookings! Wish you a happy American holiday!
