    Use the buddy system. Split the gas with the other person traveling with you.

    Do advance planning will cut your cost much.  As far as possible try to travel in train, if possible since flight coast is more than rail journey.  Arrange stay in budget hotel.  Try to travel by local bus or general transport system avoiding high paid taxis.  Limit your phone calls since roaming will cost you more. Taking a local sim is good option to get in touch with your dear ones. I hope with all these control measures, you can save a good amount.

    A few additional thoughts of things I have used are if flying, go out of season or certainly avoid high season. If a family member or friend works for an airline try and avail of their "buddy pass" which they will get to give one or more people a year. This means you only pay what they do which is very low, the snag is you have to go stand-by. use budget airlines like Ryanair for European trips. You can get flights as low as a few pounds or euros before some taxes. For trains, buy an inter-railing ticket they are cheaper if you intend on visiting a few different countries in Europe.

    Depends on factors like your destination, how much time you can spend etc. Advance planning and reservation can save you some of the cost on ticket and hotels. Usually hotels and airfare are increased, when it is 'season' for travel.
    If you are a busy person officially and can not spend more time on holidays, you will have to travel by air. Travelling by railways or by road can be inexpensive as compared to air travel.
    Travelling by road is very enjoyable and less expensive, if you have time.
    If you want to further cut down cost, go for buses.

    if you are travelling in different states of your country, go by bus, cheaper. Then stay in budget hotels and eat road side hawker stall food. Visit the popular places in the states. If travel to foreign countries, travel by ferry or cruise ship. Travel agencies provide good offers including place to stay and food.

    When I go some place, I try to rent apartments or condos. It's amazing how much less a studio or 1 bedroom can be compared to a hotel. Plus, you can do your own cooking, which saves a lot of money.

    Inexpensive ! Depends how you measure it. In my experience apart from luxury travel the quicker you get there the better. Eating,phoning,sleeping,drinking,clothing,fueling are all more expensive when traveling. As I say, in my experience. Though  for pure inexpensive , the bus is hard to beat depending on your destination. Food along the way seems to match the cost of your travel as in class, so not expensive.
    The longest journey I've had by bus was to France from U.K. Would be about right distance for economy,not much further. After that time dilutes the value.Also my back was in bits, pain from my old injury's when I arrived !!

    It is surprisingly cheap to fly around within Europe. Also, if you are in Germany, I can certainly recommend meinfernbus.de. It takes a little longer to travel by omnibus, but it is A LOT cheaper than going by train.

    Depending on how far you have to travel, a taxi, or limousine may be a cheaper way to get to where you're going, without having to purchase a more expensive plane, or Amtrak ticket for example.  Also public transportation, such as a large Coach type Buses, also offer more attractive fees for travel and do transport passengers cross country.

    Walking would be the first inexpensive way to travel. The other options from there it get more expensive because it involves transportation like taking a taxi, purchasing a bike or a car, or flying. This does also depend on the destination location.

    It really depends. Of course if you a live in a huge country, the best way would be to actually travel within your country itself. You save on travel costs, and you do not even need a passport. But for those who don't , then planning helps. Booking a flight during promotion period, looking out for cheap rooms and planning your route can help to save costs.

    It depends on your destination.  For example, some parts of the country, including Hawaii, have off-season airfare costs that sometimes include a surprising discount.  Sometimes, too, airlines such as SWA offer the $99 one-way travel, but this may not be a savings if you're not going to the city being advertised. 

    A road trip can cost more because of the cost of fuel.  If you take a road trip, the value are the stops along the way.  For example, if you plan a summer trip to the west, you could camp and visit Durango, Colorado, the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Arizona, and even make the stretch to San Diego. 

    The cost is entirely up to you.  Set a budget and then make an outline of your options including approximate figures for fuel, if driving, or airfare costs.  Then figure hotel costs and camping cost options.  If you have children, then you need to figure in any cost for entertainment, but fun activities such as hiking are relatively free of cost.

    Plus, when you drive somewhere, you save the cost associated with car rental.  There are also some KOA campgrounds that now have some awesome all inclusive cabins for families. 

    Lastly, check out vacation packages because sometimes those save you money.  Of course, you have the websites that help find the cheapest rates on airfare and hotel. 

    You need to make a plan first, then outline your options to compare costs.

    If you are looking for inexpensive ways to travel,you should look for home stays or hostels instead of hotels. share the transport cost with other travelers like you. use local transport like buses,trains,etc make your own food instead of eating outside. the above things will surely reduce cost of traveling.
