Travelling doesn’t have to be such an expensive and somewhat inconvenient endeavor. It doesn’t have to be an endeavor that’s hard on your finances and lifestyle.  There are ways to make the most of your travelling experience and reduce its pressure on your finances and lifestyle. We share four ways to travel smartly in Nigeria.

  1. Choose Your Means of Transport Wisely

Constantly check for the fares of different legitimate airlines and transport companies; check for their specific discount periods and discount schemes that will be of benefit to you in budgeting and planning for your travel with your decided mode of transportation. This can help maximize your travel experience. Registering on travel and hotel booking portals like Jumia Travel can help with this. You can take advantage of special travel smart deals to save yourself some more money.

2. Organize Your Travel Documents Well

Ensure all your travel documents are in place and are easily accessible, so you don’t have to waste time trying to find them at crucial times. This sort of oversight can end up either delaying your journey or making it entirely impossible. Besides, you’ll save yourself the stress of having to deal with officials that might get hostile or even embarrassing when this happens.

3. Pack Lightly

This can help you avoid excess luggage charges and save you from spending extra money on your travel. Just pack necessary items that can make your travel more convenient and leave behind the rest. Packing with purpose can go a long way in helping you achieve this. Pack with your location in mind and avoid packing things that aren’t versatile.

4. Plan Your Trips

Regardless of it’s a business trip or vacation, you should always endeavor to plan for your travel. From budgeting your travel expenses before and during the trip to the exact kind of hotel or accommodation you intend to stay in, and the means of transport you intent to use at your travel destination. If it’s an Uber you intend to use, plan for it; if taking the bus will be cheaper, plan for it. Plan every little detail of your trip to the best of your ability. Yes things happen, and you might ultimately not be able to execute your entire plan but it will at least keep you relatively in control of your travel experience and help you reduce and very possibly avoid excess and unexpected costs.

Write Journals

Some travelers like to stay off the internet when they travel. For those of you in this category, you can keep a journal and pen the significant things that happen during your trip. Ensure that you update your journal daily. If you want, you can use your phone to take notes.

Postcards

Postcards were widely used in the past but due to the internet, it has sharply declined. So, you can buy postcards, write memories you want and send it to your home. This will enable your families and friends to share your experience!

Buy a quality camera

You don’t have to be professional photographers before you can take pictures. While you can leave the sophisticated cameras for the professionals, your phone is a capable replacement. Phone manufacturers have largely improved their cameras that you can take quality pictures with them.

Travel with friends

Travelling solo is good but if you really want to enjoy and properly capture your travels, you should travel with your friends. With them, you can reminisce and relive your travel, especially during conversations.
