You’ll surely have a bigger space to spread out.
Book connecting flights or book early

As long as you’re not purchasing a rush ticket, then you won’t deal with too much travel expenses.
Check some nearby countries

Give your kids their own cash
Financial experts say that it’s a lot easier to spend money that you asked for, rather than spending the cash allotted to you by your parents. In a nutshell, if you will give your kids the money allotted for them, they’ll surely think twice and think wiser about where to spend it. However you should also stress out that it’s the only money for them and asking for more is not an option.
Take advantage of the technology
Buying guidebooks can be a wise idea, but opting for applications is a lot better. Indeed an effective money-saver. There’s also a lesser chance for you to be lost in the middle of downtown and end up riding a cab home if your phone has this application, unlike guidebooks that can easily get lost or left in the room.
Work in the area
Instead of spending all your savings, it’s also a bright idea to find part-time jobs in the new country you’re visiting. This way, you’ll have extra income and don’t have to slash off finances from your small budget. One best job is to teach English language. The locals may be staring at you because of your weird tongue thus, why not teach it to them? Aside from asking for money in exchange for the job, you can also ask for meals.
