Plan your tour with an expert! There are a lot of things that you will have to keep in mind if you are planning a tour on your own like hotel reservation, flight or train availability, etc. Apart from these there are many other small things to care about. Holidays are about having a relaxing time rather than keep thinking about minor details. Missing any one of these things can cause a lot trouble, especially when traveling with the family. So always try to take the help of an experienced tour operator. They can help you choose from a variety of India travel packages. They can customize your tour according to your needs. There is always a discount scheme going on, all you have to do is to ask for it. Your persuasive skills can also help you get some additional features or discounts.
Plan your tour well in advance! Pre-planning everything always pays off. When to go and where to go should be decided in advance. Always book the tour a few months before if you have fixed a date for your tour. The train and fight tickets will costs very less when booked in advance as compared to the last day booking. This way, you can save a good amount of money.
Travel wisely! A substantial inquiry will not do any harm. Always ask for more available options. Get as much information as you can. Gather all details about hotels and rooms. If a train or bus travel is also available other than fight, then take them instead. They are usually cheaper than air travel. Additionally, they give you a better chance to explore local areas.
Eat smart! Try the local restaurants for meals. It will be less costly. Also choose that hotel in which the breakfast is included in the room’s rate.
Travel off-season! It may sound like a little unusual but one of the best ways to save money on vacation trips in India is to travel during off-season. During this period, the rates are lower than the usual because only few tourists are there. You can also get your hands on off-season discounts, which decrease the overall cost of the tour. And since the number of tourists is also less, you can enjoy the local areas more freely.
Travel light! Always carry light luggage. No point in taking unnecessary things, which will have no use and will only increase the weight of the luggage. Airlines have a weight limit for luggage, and an over-weight luggage can cost extra money. It is also convenient to have less baggage while traveling.
Travel off-path! Another unusual way to save money during a tour is to avoid major cities and visit small towns. This is a great way to explore India.
