Travel On The Cheap

How would you like to have a local show you this?

And do it with this?

Dying to travel to some far-off place but can't afford those outrageous hotel bills? Want to really experience living with the locals? After all, they are the people who know all of those hidden gems and treasures, the best restaurants and the most interesting things to do and see off the beaten, touristic, trails. Well, we've got a few possible solutions for you.

We've found a couple of websites that feature people all over the world willing to invite in travellers at little or no cost at all. Yes, you may have to sleep on a cot or the couch but, hey, you can't beat the price.

There are all kinds of people out their who appreciate others with that sense of wanderlust and are willing to exchange accommodations on visits. We advise you to check out the offerings and find someone with a similar background, or not. There are careful screening processes but the general rule is let the buyer beware. Just like eBay or other sites there is plenty of feedback to go by.

Have you ever done this and don't want to again?

If all else fails, or you just don't want to spend money on a hotel for that overnight city stay there are people out there who have spent lots of time ferreting out the most comfy spots to snooze in the airport. Some of these extra padded reclining seats look downright nice!

Don't let this economy keep you from your right to see the world.
