    If I ask readers what the most critical factor that keeps them from traveling is, I nearly all the time receive the exact response the same way: money.

    I’ve heard this from every person I speak to: “Matt, I simply don’t have enough money to travel.”

    This issue — and the best way to solve it is one of the most frequent questions I get. Over the last 14 years, I’ve answered this question with many emails, posts, tweets, and posts on Facebook. Some of my long-time readers may be getting tired of me talking about this subject because I often discuss it.

    But I’m sure it will pop back regardless of how often I ask this question.

    Because this question is asked often, I want to keep reminding people that you don’t have to be rich to travel.

    We’ll reiterate that you don’t need to be wealthy to travel.

    There are many ways to travel with a tight budget (and at no cost). You have to think outside the box.

    The idea of traveling the world without cash or money sounds like an impossible dream. However, this is feasible. It’s not the most glamorous; however, it’s achievable.

    It’s important to note that there are certain expenses you shouldn’t cut corners regarding (like travel insurance); however, there are plenty of ways to travel around the world for less -with plenty of options, you can travel at no cost.

    You can make your travel fantasies come true with a reasonable budget, a positive mindset, and an attitude. Even if you don’t make much or have an outstanding debt load, there are numerous ways to travel to another country (I had debt when I made my first international trip). They might not be glamorous or lavish, but if travel is your top priority, then you’re sure to be able to get it done!
