Do you love to travel?  How much time do you spend researching your next travel destination?  Many people read travel guides, blogs, and articles for hours to get a list of activities and information on destinations.

However, where can you get travel information that will help you save money and give you a great travel experience?

Budget Travel Guides will give you travel tips on activities, transportation, places to eat, where to stay, and how to meet locals while saving you money when you travel.

Budget Travel Adventures was established to help people “travel passionately, spend wisely, and experience more.”  There are many ways Budget Travel Adventures can help you travel.

1) help you save money when you travel

2) show you how to get the most out of your travel experience.

Budget Travel Guides – 5 travel tips for every destination

Planning a trip is one of my favorite things about travel.  I love finding the best deals and sharing travel tips with people.

I research airline deals to help people save money on vacation.  I write travel tips to help people find cheap flights and save time at the airport. 

I want to help you save time and money when you travel.

Connecting with locals enriches your travel experience.  Your best travel experiences may not be the places you see but the people you meet.

I want to help you create some of your best travel experiences.

Food, Lodging, and activities are a part of every vacation.  While travel styles vary, I want people to get the most out of their travel budget whatever you do.

I want to help you plan your trip.

To help you travel, here are the travel tips for the Budget Travel Guides series.

5 travel tips in every travel guide

  • Transportation
  • Lodging
  • Food
  • Activities
  • Connect with locals

Each guide will include these travel tips as well as other helpful information for your travels.  Use these travel tips to save money and create your best travel experiences.

Where will the Budget Travel Guides series go?

There are four types of places covered in this series:

  • Countries or regions
  • Cities
  • Major events (i.e. Olympics, World Cup, International festivals, etc)
  • National landmarks and parksParis budget travel guide

What topics will the Budget Travel Guides cover?

There are five specific areas each guide will cover – transportation, lodging, food, activities, and connecting with locals.  Guides may also include tour information, volunteer travel opportunities, Wi-Fi and internet access, special events, general travel tips, and more.

What the Budget Travel Guides will not cover – history and overview of a country, sample itineraries (check out Unanchor for multiple day itineraries for cities around the world), politics, and government policies.

These travel tips will give travelers a general overview of destinations covering a wide range of travel topics.   While a number of restaurants, tours, hotels, and other activities may be included, these guides will not be an exclusive paid advertisement for a particular brand to promote their product.

Who will write the budget travel guides?

A few months ago, I wrote my first travel guide – the ultimate Slovenia travel guide.  On my College Football Travel Tour, I’ve done a lot of research on hotels, restaurants, and activities.  Here is what I learned:

  • A good travel guide provides practical, easy to use information
  • A good travel guide can be long (as long as it’s useful) but not too long
  • I haven’t gone everywhere but still want to help people travel

Maybe this isn’t news to many people.  However, I need help writing these guides.

Who can write a budget travel guide?

  • Travel bloggers
  • Travel writers
  • Travelers
  • People in the travel and tourism business

If you want to write a budget travel guide, tell me what type of destination you want to cover.  Budget Travel Guides can be written by anyone.  However, the guidelines for writing a guide must be followed.

Companies may sponsor budget travel guides but strict adherence to the guidelines is required.

How much will the budget travel guides cost?

All guides are free.  You can get every budget travel guide sent right to your inbox by signing up for the Budget Travel Adventures newsletter (also free!).

  1. Wow! What a great idea! How exactly are you going to fit all of Australia into one guide?
    Tracey – Life Changing Year recently posted..What Happens In Vegas Stays In Vegas. Unless Your Last Name Is Pedersen!My Profile

    • Thanks Tracey. Remember that this is just a general overview with some budget tips for Australia. So what types of places to stay, food to eat, general ideas on how to connect with locals. There won’t be anything specific for cities but there will be some ideas on there of things you can do. It’s a very good budget travel overview of Australia on what you can expect when going there.

      I hope people find it helpful.

  4. Great idea Jeremy! I look forward to reading them (and maybe contributing too!)

  5. Great idea Jeremy. I hope whoever writes the guide for London will include home exchange under Accommodation as we’ve got tons of Londoners offering their homes for swaps!

  6. Congrats at moving in this direction with your travel site.

  7. jan says:

    Great Idea. This could be enormous!

    • Thanks Jan! I hope this is a series people can enjoy and find some value. Maybe everyone doesn’t travel like me but hopefully there is enough information in here to give people a good overview of destinations that they want to see.

  8. Fantastic idea, Jeremy! We always love getting travel advice from other travelers (as opposed to big name companies), so we’ll definitely check out the guides when they get published. :)
    Christy @ Technosyncratic recently posted..Vietnam’s Best-Kept SecretMy Profile

    • Thanks Christy! I would love for you to be a part of it as well. I want to give something to people that is practical from people who have traveled and know places. I hope this is a series many people will enjoy!

    • Thanks Christy. If you get the chance, would love to get a submission from you. I know you have been to lots of places and have some good insight so if a place comes to mind, please let me know. :)

  10. Erik says:

    Best of luck on this new venture, Jeremy, it’s a great idea.

    I’d love to write one on New Zealand (or some of my destinations there) while it is fresh in my head, because I can’t encourage people enough to go there. Unfortunately, catching up on work and other commitments has left me so far behind even organizing and editing my own photos, I have no idea when I might (if ever) get caught up!

    I can’t wait to read about all of these destinations!
    Erik recently posted..New Zealand- Chapter One: Christchurch in One Word: BrokenMy Profile

    • Thanks Erik. It would be great if you could do something on New Zealand. I know Amanda loves it as well so you could do a region or specific cities rather than just the whole country.

  11. Ayngelina says:

    I really hope someone does one on NYC soon as I’m heading there in a month and I heard it was expensive.

    • Ayngelina, how did you like your trip to NYC? I’ve had a couple of people volunteer to do something on NY so maybe I will have something soon. Feel free to do one on Toronto if you want! :)

  12. Laurence says:

    Free! Can’t beat that price :) Great idea, looking forward to seeing how these develop!

  13. It’s like the holy grail of travel tips: money-saving AND experience-enhancing (plus short and sweet). Good luck with the series!
    Karen @ Trans-Americas Journey recently posted..Scaling a Volcano & Hanging with a Soccer Star – Santa Ana, El SalvadorMy Profile

    • Thanks Karen! Actually, you’ve been to so many interesting places in Central America. Would you be interesting in writing a guide for the region, a country, or a city? You definitely have some great insight into these places and would love to share your tips for this area of world.

  14. It’s a great idea Jeremy. A very helpful resource for travellers. Glad I was able to be a part of it

  15. Brilliant and definitely keen to write any for New Zealand for you!
    Cole @ Four Jandals recently posted..Manarola Sunset Photos – Cinque TerreMy Profile

    • Thanks Cole! A few people want to write on New Zealand. Would you be interested in writing one on a specific city or region? I know it would be awesome to read so I would love to have one from you!

  16. Love the idea! We don’t do a lot of budget travel ourselves, but I know it’s a huge market, so I’m sure the series will prove an incredibly valuable resource for many travelers. Best of luck, Jeremy!
    Bret @ GreenGlobalTravel recently posted..INTERVIEW: Rick Steves On Ecotourism, Blogging & Best Places To Score WeedMy Profile

    • Thanks Bret! Just know this series is as much about connecting with people and the culture as it is budget travel. And surely you do things to save money right? I think this guide could be helpful for anyone who travels.

      Here’s been my motto – budget travel isn’t about spending as little as possible to travel. It’s about getting the most travel experience out of the money you have to spend.

  17. Turtle says:

    Awesome idea. Please remember us little people when you’re the king of the guidebook world!
    Turtle recently posted..In fair Verona, where we lay our scene…My Profile

    • I doubt I will ever be the king of the guidebook world – nor do I want to! However, I want to do my part to give back and help people travel the way I like to travel throughout the world.
