(1) MONEY EXCHANGE
Never exchange your money in the airport. The rates are usually not great and you could end up paying more than you bargained for. It is best to do it in advance so you have time to compare the rates. Also, keep an eye on the exchange rate.
(2) KEEPING IN CONTACT
If you want to stay in touch with family and friends through making calls. It is strongly advised that you used the Whatsapp telephone feature. It uses a VOIp system so through the use of the Internet your calls will be completely free.
Whenever you wish to make a call, find a place with WiFi to avoid running up a huge bill. Also, don’t forget to turn off roaming on your phone. This is another cause of high phone bills when travelling.
(3) AIRPORT TAXIS
Airport taxis can be very expensive because the taxi drivers usually inflate the price. Before your trip, research the best ways to use public transport to get to your hotel. It is also an opportunity to hit the ground running when experiencing a new country. If you do insist on using a taxi from the airport make sure to negotiate on the price before entering the taxi. This is to ensure that you avoid getting an unexpected price that you did not budget for when you reach your destination.
(4) SAVE MONEY ON FLIGHT TICKETS
Book your flights during the weekdays because it is a lot cheaper. Also, try not to book your flights during the weekends or public holidays, as the price will increase.
Sometimes airlines also do discount codes on their flights, so be on the lookout and search the Internet there are loads.
(5) AVOID TOURIST TRAPS
Tourist traps are usually overhyped places where tourists go to eat and be entertained. Those places are usually really expensive. To avoid being ripped off check out the local things to see and do. Remember to do your research.
To truly enjoy the culture of the country or city that you are visiting eat the local food. It’s going to be much more affordable and will further add to the experience.
When you arrive at your destination. Go to the information centre or check with your hotel and they will usually have coupons and discount codes for different restaurants, theatres and tourist attractions.
At first the weather was really gloomy, but as soon as we started photographing Sarah the sun came out and as bright as ever! :-) Sarah is a self taught artist born in London with a very distinct style which she describes as Owusuism. She is a wonderful person with a passion to inspire people through her craft. She was also a pleasure to photograph and to top it off, thanks to her superpowers it was another sunny day London. Everyone meet our latest Global Citizen Sarah! :-)
