Save with this travel hack on your next adventure

All it takes is a little discipline and replacing, or removing, the little indulgences to ensure your dollar goes further.

Skyscanner Australia has found the ultimate hack on how you can save enough to go on an epic adventure of a lifetime.

By cutting out all the suggested treats, you can save a total of $7,077 a year, which can take you on a grand tour of Europe and then some:

Smashed avo on toast is an Aussie staple, but why not satisfy the craving at home and save $22 a week for a flight to Helsinki?
We all know the expression “a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips”, but how about trading a moment on the lips, for a lifetime trip?

Cutting out that daily $3 can of coke can nab you a flight to Honolulu and might get your body beach ready for sunbathing along the strip of Waikiki.

Working out is great, but working out a way to go on a dream holiday is even better! Banish the guilt you feel when you don’t make it to the gym you’re paying for. Halt the monthly membership payments and follow a Jane Fonda workout at home to secure flights to Colombo.

Check out all the travel hacks together into the attached infographic, which shows the dollars that can be saved and what flights can be purchased as a result.
