People often ask us how we travel the world on so little.
As readers of our website and blog know, there are 4 categories of highest spending: housing, transportation, taxes and food.
Lodging on the road can be a massive expense but if you are savvy, you will be able to bargain for better rates. As the photo shows you, this hotel in Guatemala charges 300 Quetzales for one night’s stay. That currently translates into about $38USD. But we have purchased a monthly rate and bargained hard. What do we pay? 54 Quetzales – less than $7USD a night.
That’s a big difference.
The longer you stay, the better the rate.
You can also offer to have the maid clean your room every other day or buy your own toilet paper and soap to sweeten the deal. Be creative! Save money.
