The Blog Single


    When I decided to leave my position to travel across the globe, I went to a bookstore and purchased the Lonely Planet guidebook for Southeast Asia on Shoestring. I bought the guidebook as my first step towards longer-term travel. It made the journey seem more real and tangible. It made everything appear possible.

    Although helpful, the book was not an excellent guide for planning a global trip. At the time when I was a kid, there weren’t any travel blogs or sharing economy websites and apps as there are now. I was glad and determined, but I was confused. I needed to find the answer on the go, hoping I didn’t forget anything important.

    After ten years of traveling across the globe, I’ve organized many trips and holidays for friends, me, family, and friends, as well as group tours. It was a test by fire, and I gained several lessons by trial and error. But, it led me to create a streamlined checklist that ensures I don’t overlook anything crucial in the planning of my trip.

    In the end, I don’t want to go on my way to the next place only to find out that I’ve forgotten something. I don’t want to do that!

    There’s a wealth of information available on this site ( and even more details packed into the book I wrote), But the one question that pops up often is, “Matt How do I connect all this information? What do I need to know about planning a trip?”

    To get you out of the house and into your world of adventure, I’ve put together this step-by-step guide for planning your trip. This guide is suitable for all kinds of travel — regardless of how long you take! Follow this guideline, and you’ll be on your way quickly!

    Decide Where You Want To Go

    The decision of where you’d like to go is a set of goals you must work towards. Most people are vague about traveling. They don’t declare where they’re going; they say the place they are traveling. Choosing a destination is critical because it will give you an objective.

    It’s much easier to imagine “I am going to Paris in the summer” rather than “I’m going to Europe” or “I’m going somewhere.” The trip will not only be more tangible for you and much easier to make a commitment to and commit to, but it’ll simplify planning as well…because it is clear what goals to do to achieve it. Make your plans specific. Get detailed. The more specific and clear your destination, the easier it is for you to achieve it.

    Decide the Length of Your Trip

    What is the cost to travel? It is dependent on the destination!

    If I don’t know the length of time you’ll be away, I cannot answer this question. This is a question you must answer before you can begin making plans!

    To figure out the amount you’ll need to save, you’ll need to know the length of the trip will take.

    The duration of your trip is a significant factor in determining the money you’ll require. Take some time to think it over until you’ve got the answer.

    For instance, if you’ve said, “I’m going to Paris this summer,” include “for X days.” This way, you can determine how much you will need to put aside. “I am going to Paris for ten days” is an excursion you can prepare for. It’s a goal that is achievable.

    Research Your Costs

    Now that you know where you’re headed and the length of time you’ll spend there, but if you want to establish how much you’ll need, your next step is to study the cost of your trip and the type of travel you’d like to experience.

    You don’t have to go further than this. There’s a lot of information on the internet that if you wander off into the pit of planning too much, you’ll end up lost and overwhelmed by the plethora of information. Make sure you stick to these three rules, and you’ll be ready!

    In our case, we will assume that you’re going to Paris over ten days and require at least USD 75 per day (not including flights). Then you’ll need to keep a budget of $750 (though around $800 – 900 USD, since it’s always beneficial to have an additional one) to make it possible for you to go.

    Start Saving Money

    Before you begin saving money, you have to be aware of how much money you’ve got and how much you’re spending. Make a list of every expense you incur to help you identify where you’re spending money and also how you can reduce your spending.

    Many people squander dollars daily from small purchases such as coffee here or a snack there. The sum of it all adds to. If you want to adjust how you spend money, you need to know what they are. A list of your expenses will help you help you do that. It also puts your financial requirements in a more accessible standpoint.

    For instance, if you require USD 2,000 for your trip of eight months, you’ll only need to save USD 8.33 a day. Wouldn’t you be able to find an opportunity to save just an average of USD 8 a day? Your daily cup of cup of coffee will cost you this!

    If you’re struggling with saving money, Here are 23 strategies to reduce your costs and save to travel. This will get you going and get on the path towards saving cash in little time!
