Budget Travel

Updated: 2017-12-14.

Budget travel is travel that is budget-conscious.

A budget traveler may stay in economy accommodations or hostels, eat cheap meals, and fly during off-peak seasons, among other things. Budget travelers differ from backpackers in the sense that they may not necessarily be staying for a long period of time, they lean towards budget hotels/motels rather than hostels, and usually their trip is not open-ended.
