1. Bring a reusable water bottle with you on the plane to cut down on plastic waste and save money on the expensive water bottles at the airport and on the plane.

2. Pack snacks and meals that don’t need refrigeration or cooking, such as granola bars, trail mix, fruit cups, etc. with you when traveling by car, plane, train, or bus – this way you won’t be tempted to buy pricey airport food or eat out for every meal.

3. Avoid purchasing food from vendors at tourist attractions because it is more expensive than what locals pay.

25. Compare prices across multiple travel websites to find the best deals.

27. Look into good travel insurance if you’re going abroad or to remote areas where medical assistance may not be readily available.
