How To Travel Overseas When You Have No Money

When asking friends and family why they don’t travel, the answer we get back is “I have no money.”  If that’s you, give us the chance to convince you otherwise!

There are 2 keys to traveling with no money: Flexibility and Prioritization.

If you are flexible and plan to travel alone or with others who are flexible.  You are on your way out the door.  Second of all is prioritization.  The travel will have to become priority over whatever it is you are choosing to spend your money on right now.

Eat Their Food!  Stay away from the western joints and eat where the locals eat.  Find a friend and offer to pay a meal at their home.
  • Cook your own food.  This is the best way to travel on a food budget.
  • Pay little to eat in locals homes.  There is even a website coordinating this effort but we have found that with a few dollars offered, many locals would love to have you over for dinner. Eat With Locals International

  1. Great post! I have been waiting to travel for the longest time now and somehow I always seem to talk myself out of it because of money. Having 3 kids doesn’t help as am always thinking of how I can make this happen with all of us and the cost. If you have any tips on traveling as a family for less please that as well. Thanks 😊

    • Thank you S-Bad! I applaud you for realizing the importance of traveling as a family. I have 4 kids and understand the cost is high! I have a few tips: book room on airbnb and choose rooms that allow your kids to sleep on the floor. Second, cheapest flights are often found on AirAsia and other smaller airlines. Lastly, save for the trip as a family. For my kids, we skipped buying presents at Christmas last year and choose to use the money for a trip. Their grandparents have them a money gift to help with the cost. I encourage you to make you plans and do it! Your family will ❤️ you for it!
