If you don't know much about the destination, then there is a fare chance of being cheated by local travel agent. So before travelling, try to know about the places. Explore its map online and take copy of map. Because may be the local popular places of the specific destination are situated very close but if you don't have any idea about this, the travel guide will asked for more money. May be some places in the destination are close to your hotel, so you need not to rent a car to visit the places.

agent because they also charge quite high. Always looks for government approved travel agent because it's loyal and cheap also.

Travel during Off Season:

Try to Save on Food Expenses:

Vacation does not mean that everyone has to eat outside always. In a tourist spot, the foods are very expensive as well as the water. So always try to carry some bottles with you and fill up the water bottles from hotel room. Carry some dry foods, sandwiches; cup Maggie / noodles, biscuits, cakes because you can use these all as your breakfast or evening snacks.
