It will all depend on the place where you want to get to. For instance, if there are accessible routes through public transportation like trains and buses for you to get to your destination, I recommend that you take it instead of renting or bringing your own car. If traveling through public transportation is convenient for you, say you don’t have a lot of stuff with you, then this is a good option. You can save big rather than spending more cash on gas and car maintenance. On the other hand, if you’re going to a place not accessible by commuters, you might want to rent your own car. When choosing a car, be sure to get the one that uses gas minimally.
A lot of good places in the world remain untouched by modernization. By this, I mean there won’t be available food stores nearby during your trip. This is why I suggest you go to the grocery store first and buy snacks you can eat while you’re on the road or something to fill you up when you get hungry during your trip. If you can cook at your place, it’s better. If not, you can stop by the food stores and fast food chains you will pass by as you drive. Don’t spend too much on food if your purpose for traveling is sight-seeing. You can always have a good set of meals when you get home.
When traveling to places away from the city, it’s usual to find small hotels on the way to your destination. It may not be big and as classy as you think it is but you will definitely save more of your accommodation budget if you choose to settle in this kind of shelter over the night. There will be hotels available in the main city but expect that those will be expensive especially when you don’t get reservations early. If you really want a budget trip, you don’t have to be picky when it comes to selecting hotels when you’re traveling.
