When you think of booking your next vacation, what are the things that you budget for immediately? Obviously flights & hotels are at the top of your list, perhaps ground transportation comes to mind & of course money for food/drinks. But what other expenses are out there that you are overlooking? Additional travel expenses can add up quickly & can easily put a damper on your trip if you are not prepared for them. Here are TL Travel's 5 most commonly overlooked travel expenses as compiled by you; our TL Travelers.
Traveling the world is an amazing thing! There is no better feeling (in my opinion) than stepping out of the airport in a brand new destination & being welcomed by new sights & sounds. More often though, I find myself hopping into business mode; find a taxi, barter a price, locate the hotel, where should I eat? etc., & before I know it that feeling is gone. Group travel makes all of these things easy & allows you to make the most of each moment without having to worry about the logistics of where to go next, how to get there & how not to get ripped off. If you are a traveler (or soon-to-be traveler) who has never experienced travel as a group, here are a few reasons why you should try it out!
When you travel the world with a group or a partner there is always someone on hand to snap a photo & capture the moment for you. For travel bloggers especially, having yourself included in your travel photos adds a personal touch & element of engagement to your social media posts, so you can imagine the struggle that arises for solo travelers who want to document their adventures & still be present in their own shots.
It should come as no surprise to our readers that the TL Travel team travels A LOT. Travel, as much as we love it, can be very unpredictable & when it comes to major flight delays you may never know what you need from your luggage to stay sane & feel fresh while you wait.
