Step 1: Use travel consolidators
Use travel consolidators, on- and offline. They snatch up empty airline seats and unsold cruise cabins and resell them at a great discount. Sign up to receive information on last minute deals.
Call hotels directly to see if you can negotiate a cheaper rate.
Step 2: Consider youth hostels
Consider youth hostels, especially in the more expensive cities around the world. You'll sacrifice privacy, but you'll save a bundle.
If you live in a popular travel destination, consider swapping homes with someone.
Step 3: Eat at street vendors
Rely on street food vendors for most of your meals.
If you like to eat out, make lunch your daily restaurant treat instead of dinner.
Step 4: Check student travel rates
Check out student rates on bus and rail passes.
Be a "voluntourist" in a country you'd like to visit. You'll get to explore a new culture while helping out the locals—and maybe even wrangle some school credit for the experience.
Step 5: Be flexible
Be flexible. Monday and Thursday departures are generally cheaper than weekend fares. And save a bundle by flying into a less popular city and then catching a train or driving to your desired destination.
Step 6: Vacation in off-season
Vacation in the off-season, when prices are cheaper and you don't have to fight the crowds.
