earn money and travelJust because you have a small budget, it doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy the vacation of a lifetime. Indeed, there are a plethora of destinations and locations where you can have great fun – without doing too much financial damage. With a little creativity and resourcefulness, you can go almost anywhere and do anything. Not only that, but you can visit some of those amazing cities that you’ve always wanted to visit – without paying a fortune for hotel and lodging costs. How is this done? Well, there are a lot of ways to bend traditional travel customs to fit your budget – you just have to think outside the box. Here are five budget friendly travel ideas for 2014.

Take a cruise. When it comes down to it, most of us don’t have the budget to fly around the world and stay at fancy resorts. However, there are many budget cruise lines out there that allow you to purchase all-inclusive packages. These packages include your stay on the cruise ship – plus meals and entertainment. The best part is that you can get a taste of multiple different locations and cities on one cruise.

Take a road trip. Instead of purchasing expensive plane tickets and exorbitant hotel accommodations, why not take a road trip and see the world for a fraction of the cost. All you have to do is plan a route and go. You could even take an RV, so that you don’t have to spend any money on lodging, like motels and hotels. Plus, going on a road trip can be fun for the whole family. Not only that, but you will be in control of your entire trip – you don’t have to plan your schedule around a set itinerary, or even an arrival or departure date.

Camping. This year, camping is all the rage. Plus, there is so much variety when you go camping. For instance, you can camp somewhere remote – somewhere that you have to hike long distances to get to – or you can camp near a busy city or tourist destination and get a mix of nature and the big city. When it comes down to it, purchasing a camping space is extremely affordable. There is nothing like spending a weekend in the great outdoors.

A weekend getaway. Whether you are looking for a weekend stay in San Francisco, Seattle or some other beautiful city, there is no better way to save money and see all the sites than to stay for just a weekend. You can save money on hotel costs, by only staying two or three nights, and you’ll still get to see all the top attractions in San Francisco or in whatever city you choose to visit.

Woofing. If you want to really travel on a budget – sometimes having your plane ticket and lodging costs covered – you could look into the new trend of woofing. Woofing basically involves signing up for a program that allows you to travel the world in exchange or working on organic farms. When it comes down to it, this can be hard work, but if you want to travel and see the world – this can be one of the best ways to do it. At the end of the day, if you are young and fit – what do you have to lose?
