Revealed: How to travel cheap in popular countries

Travelling on a budget is a lot more fun, and doable, than most would think.

In fact, the Travel Weekly staff like to play a little game while on famils and see who can spend the least.

To be completely honest the rules of the game usually get forgotten about fairly early into the trip (see: too busy eating pizza to care about a competition).


Though tight budgets and incredible travel experiences should not be divorced from each other, and Intrepid Travel is proving it.

As part of the inaugural Adventure Travel Index – which challenges stereotypes of adventure travellers and redefining the growing sector within the tourism industry, the folks at Intrepid are finding out what’s the cheapest activity, and where.

The new research shows that adventure travellers can be any age, with all demographics choosing adventure destinations like Peru, Cambodia, Morocco, Cuba and India to holiday in.

Almost half of Intrepid travellers go by themselves, and most of them are female (girl power!).

Though while just six per cent of Aussies define adventure travel as travelling on a budget, we all like to get bang from our tourist buck.

To see how far your Aussie dollar can stretch across the world, Intrepid has compared some essential purchases like local street food, bus tickets and bike hire.
