Choose to travel light
There are countless benefits to travelling light; you will not be hampered from moving quickly if you need to and if you only have one bag, watching after it is easier too compared when you are dragging 2 or 3 bags. And more importantly, travelling light can mean huge savings. Why? Because you will not need to hire porters in ports to help you carry your things, you will not need to hire a taxi because you can just carry your bag and hop into public transport with no hassle, plus you will save on excess baggage fee since some air couriers might charge an extra fee for more than 1 bag.
Choose to buy your gears and supplies in your place of destination
This may be an overlooked thing by many travelers that wherever they go in the world, they bring with them bottles of shampoos, soaps, lotions, medicines, chips, and the likes. But the world is already global where free trade between country is the norm, and unless you are headed to a remote destination in a certain country, chances are there will be shops in your place of destination that carry the same brands that you prefer and sometimes, they are sold at a cheaper price especially at duty free shops.
Do your own laundry
If you are staying for a week or longer in a certain place, you may want to consider doing your own laundry or if that is not possible, check out the Laundromat in the area where you are staying. Usually a place filled with hotels and motels also have one or two neighborhood laundromats. You can truly save by doing either of the two suggestions as hotels usually charges a hefty sum for laundries where a hotel may charge you $1 per piece of clothing whereas in the neighborhood laundromat your $1 might pay for your whole laundry.
