Summer is gone, and the holiday season is not yet upon us. But this might just be a great time for international travel if you want to beat the crowds. The season is especially travel-friendly for backpackers.

To make your travel dollars work for you, consider the following before your trip:

  1. Saturday tickets. Unless you are really pressed for time, you can probably travel a day later. Saturday tickets are sometimes more than 20% cheaper than Friday or Sunday tickets.

  2. International travel insurance: Start shopping for international travel insurance deals, even if your trip is just for a week. You’re more likely to have the time to choose a perfect plan for you.

  3. Live with local flavour: For adventure lovers, try inexpensive options such as couchsurfing, where locals offer their couches for travellers, or youth hostels, many of which are extremely well-maintained.

Remember that a backpacking lifestyle calls for more diligence in choosing appropriate insurance. If you’re a backpacker and are looking to perform some adventurous sports, purchase the extra coverage. It will save you a lot of trouble and tension.

Also remember to check everything that might impact you at the destination—weather, temperatures, social customs, international insurance plan reimbursement, etc. before the trip.
