A lot of occupations today may require extended travels along with costly stays in hotels. It’s not all the time that an employer does cover those costs. In some cases, travel costs are not covered at all.
This can be a large financial burden for people for freelancers who need to travel as part of the job and pay for those expenses out of their own pocket.
My tip here is that you should consider alternative ways to travel if you want to save the one or the other buck. You don’t always have to lodge in expensive Bed and Breakfasts but are able to save a good amount of money when you consider travelling with a camper van instead. This can be a good option especially for short-term trips that would only require you to stay at a location for a day or two. Depending on the make or model of your camper van, camping may well be suitable for extended travels as well.
Some people today still have a preconceived notion that camping means the bare necessities only and overall would really more be a hassle rather than a joyful experience. Those people however couldn’t be more wrong.
While modern camper vans can offer a variety of luxuries that range from a comfortable bed to a fully equipped kitchen, air conditioning and much more, cost savings with camping can be substantial.
The obvious natural savings would be that you won’t have to book into hotels any longer, the other that you won’t have dine out when you feel the need for coffee, snack or dinner. Not only can this save you a lot on your expenses, it moreover gives you much more flexibility with your travels.
