I love to travel and since I've retired I have a lot more time to do it.

Here's some tips on how I travel on the cheap:

Prior to my trips I do research to find free/low cost entertainment options in my destination. I look for online versions of local newspapers, consult budget travel guides like "Let's Go" and ask for help here on TMF.

I have frequent flyer miles left over from my working days and I try to get the best value when I cash them in. I've also registered to receive the newsletters of discount airlines, so that I'm aware of any specials.

I tend to stay in hostels and college dorms. Yeah there are loss of privacy, however the low prices and interesting people you met more than makes up for it. Plus staying in those places facilitates indulging in free/low cost entertainment.
