We went on a mission to track down creative travel "hacks," or ways to save money without sparing adventure.
And the guru of travel hacks happens to be ... none other than Betsy Talbot of Married With Luggage.
You may remember Betsy's story on LearnVest about selling nearly everything she owned and quitting her job to take a five-year trip around the world, without going into debt or anything. (Update: She and her husband Warren just returned from a trek around central Mongolia!)
Now, we’re back for more.
We’ve compiled a slide show of Betsy’s top ten travel hacks, complete with first-person accounts of her travels in Thailand, Amsterdam and Ecuador. She’s got you covered with haven't-heard-that-before ways to save on every travel front: sleeping, eating, getting around and more. She even has tips on how to make buddies with your fellow travelers!
To view the slide show as one long list, click into the show and choose “list view.”
Find out more about how Betsy and her husband Warren achieved their financial goal to travel around the world in their book “Dream Save Do: Stop Dreaming and Start Living.” You can read more about their journey to live the good life on their website, Married With Luggage (and get a free guide on how they used Craigslist to make some serious cash for their trip).
