“People don’t take trips. Trips take people.”               -John Steinbeck

Seeing the world on a shoestring, budget travel is as much a mindset as it is a way to plan your travels. From finding the best deals to low- or no-cost ways to explore the world both near and far, budget travel makes it possible for anyone to take an adventure and create memories that will last a lifetime.  From backpacking, bicycling, camping, riding the rails to hitching a ride along the way, the way we think of budget travel is limited only by our imagination.
