Traveling to Newcastle on a budget

Jan 03, 17 Traveling to Newcastle on a budget


England is an interesting destination having lots to offer tourists. You have history, culture, fine dinning, fashion and the list could go on forever. Because traveling means discovering the world, staying in 5 star hotels and looking down at the world from your balcony might not be the best of ideas. Traveling means discovering the world, seeing what regular people are like. In fact, if you think about it, budget trips are often the most rewarding ones. You don’t waste time thinking about where to eat, which fancy restaurant to choose and instead, you go right ahead and savour a meal right there on the street, looking towards Tyne Bridge.  So, if you are in for an experience, here are three ideas on how to plan a trip to Newcastle on a budget.

Finding cheap accommodation

You could search the dedicated market to see if you can find any cheap hotels. However, if all options are much above your budget, you could consider hostels. A traveling secret is looking at shared house student accommodation in Newcastle. If you have a friend that studies here, you could ask him or her to let you stay a few days. At the same time, students welcome tourists during the summer, when they are not at school. Try looking online to see if you can find such options worth considering.

Buy traveling passes

Traveling is about visiting, but in most cases, this part of you trip is often the most expensive. What you can do to save money is to buy traveling passes. These offer you the opportunity to visit a lot of touristic attractions, at lower prices. You can purchase a pass that is valid for a fixed number of days and in that time, you can visit a lot of attractions. Since you bought the pass before going on your trip, your budget will not be affected in any way.

Eating habits

If you think about it, you tend to waste a lot of money on food as well when traveling. Usually, travellers head out to the nearest restaurant when they are hungry, paying a lot in the end. What you could instead is take a trip to several supermarkets and do the grocery shopping. This way, you could be saving a lot of money. You could make sandwiches, heat up precooked meals if you have a microwave in your room and so on. You might even notice that if you are thirsty and decide to buy a bottle of water from the restaurant its price might be double than in the supermarket. The water, however, is the same.
