5 Tips To Save Money While Traveling Australia!

Want To Save On Travel Costs In Australia? A Free Rental Car Is A Great Start! 

These tips will help you make the most of your time and budget while you are here, with or without a rental car relocation!

  1. Couch Surfing/House Sitting:
    • Couch Surfing is a great way to meet locals and see some of the lesser known activities that only true locals know about . Couch Surfing also offers you a cheap or free stay! Couch surfing is great for short periods of time however for a longer stay you should consider house sitting or even a house swap! In these situations you will have the house to yourself and for a longer period of time but you wont have the fantastic tour guide! If these options sound great to you then you check out Airbnb.com.au, LoveHomeSwap.com and MindAHome.com.au!
  2. Travel by Train:
    • Australia is a huge country and this means that sometimes a train is a great opportunity to take a rest from the wheel and sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery!
  3. Buy AUD When the exchange rate is in your favor!
    • The Australian Dollar fluctuates a lot! This is great for over seas visitors prepared to do a little preparation in the months coming up to their travel! By looking at basic trends (found here Finance.Yahoo.com) you will be able to take a guess as to when the best time to trade your local currency for Australian Dollars!
  4. Freedom Camping:
    • Freedom camping is the ideal partner to rental car relocation! Partner a free rental with an equally free camping ground and you have yourself a great start to a budget friendly holiday! CampingAustralia.com.au is a great source for finding sites, be wary that often these sites will fill up quickly and sometimes close before dark.
  5. Airline Specials:
    • Jetstar, Qantas, Virgin and TigerAir all offer regular discounted flights but Jetstar offers the most frequent with its weekly Friday sale. Checking these offers will allow you to see a different part of the country for a fraction of the price that it might ordinarily cost!
