Budget traveling: doing more with less

There are several things you can do to maximize on what you get for your budget whilst travelling. If you are going to be travelling to many different places around the world, then it can be a good idea to try to keep in touch with other travelers. You could find that you have just travelled to a hot location, and will then be going to somewhere colder and wetter and someone else is doing the opposite. Rather than having to carry two different sets of clothing with you, you could arrange to swap with the other traveler. This will keep your luggage costs down, means that you don’t have to carry as much around with you and you wont have to spend so much on clothing for your travels. Other things you could swap include maps for the countries that you are visiting and even any useful items that you have picked up from your destinations.
