Just because you’re travelling on the budget doesn’t mean that you can’t be the best version of yourself which, if you ask us, should always involve an element of style. Often times people (wrongly) assume that they need to spend a fortune and/ or a ridiculous amount of time in order to achieve that much sought-out stylish look. While being elegant and suave isn’t something that interests all people, or comes naturally to everyone, there are still ways you can accomplish this, without putting too much effort or without breaking the bank for that matter. Here are 5 tips on how to get ready for travelling with poise and pizzazz.
Pay Attention to the Details (Why You Should Make An Effort)
An attractive combination of vitality and glamour can be achieved rather easily and quickly if you just pay attention to a couple of details. You should consider this even if you’re not that delighted with the idea of having to spend any time whatsoever deciding what you’re going to wear or how you’re going to travel. But the truth is that you actually can’t run away from these decisions completely. You still have to wear something (hey, we’re not making these rules), and you have to decide how you’re going to travel, where you’ll eat, go out to have fun, etc. Instead of leaving these things to chance, you can actually save more money, while at the same time looking tip-top.
Clothes, Shoes, Hairstyle
So, if you’re not planning on travelling without the clothes (we’d strongly advise you against the idea), you still have to spend some time thinking about what to wear. Even if you’re a strong proponent of wearing whatever your hand touches first when you open the wardrobe, there’s still the thought process that led to that particular decision. Our advice would be to use that thought process and opt for something stylish and fashionable. The logic behind this reasoning is pretty simple: why wouldn’t you look better if it’s possible? And if someone says that this is superficial, then they’re the ones who are actually being like that since they’re judging you based on your look. Make sure to pay special attention to your clothes, shoes, hairstyle, and do whatever it is in your power to always look your best.
Means Of Transportation
Whatever your means of transportation ends up being, you should ensure that you’re getting the best bang for your buck. If you’re travelling by plane, you probably won’t be able to book a first-class ticket since you’re on a budget, but you can still do a pre-check by filling out the online application. This means that you won’t have to wait in line and won’t need to take your shoes and belt off since you’ve registered as a ’known traveller’.
If you’re using a car to travel, make sure to perform mobile interior car detailing before you go on a trip. Having your car clean as a whistle can only add to the feeling of opulence and luxuriousness
Eat Well Regardless Of Your Budget
If there’s one thing you shouldn’t shy away from spending your money on – it’s good-quality food and drinks. But this can turn out to be pretty demanding when you don’t have that much money to spend.
The key thing here, like with anything else, is good preparation. You know that all the fancy restaurants are expensive, but the food actually doesn’t always match those astronomical prices. But you can still eat cheap like a king – all you need to do is a little research prior to going out. Every place has at least a couple of those tiny restaurants that don’t look like much but serve the food that tastes out of this world. Your only task is to find these places – whether online or by asking around locals.
Have Fun Checking Out the Local Sights
Just like with food and drink, having fun doesn’t necessarily have to involve spending the entire retirement fund. Our advice would be to have a stroll around the city/ place and find something that suits you the best. As you should already know by now, the place doesn’t have to look like much and doesn’t need to have all the glitz and glam in order to be stylish and cozy.
The trick is to be patient when looking, and not being afraid to engage in conversation with the people. It’s an unwritten rule that the more friendly you are, the more fun you’ll have.
Travelling with style while you’re on the budget really doesn’t have to be that hard. All you need to do is show some good will on your part.
Whether you opt for all five aforementioned recommendations, or you settle with only a few, it’s always a good decision to bring a little extravagance with you, wherever you go.
