How to budget for student and gap year travel

Saving money by being smart and knowing how foreign currency conversions work could mean a richer experience for you


Money or time. For many travellers there is usually more of one than the other.

For student and younger travellers it's typically time, so saving every penny is priority number one.

A few extra bucks could get you another nights accommodation in some countries so wouldn't you rather be smarter in your planning to ensure your money goes towards your experience rather than to a massive corporation?

Whether you're planning a Gap Year, going on a trip with your school or taking part in some other amazing overseas adventure you may want to read this How to budget for student and gap year travel article published by the UK based newspaper The Telegraph.

If you're not from the UK the article is still relevant and should provoke some simple ideas to ensure to get you thinking about how you can keep more of what's rightly yours in your own pocket.
