Subject: Best budget tips?
Hi Ziners,

Please share your budget tips with us!

I try to compare the costs of alternatives by figuring out a daily price, including transportation, accommodation and food. That way I can easily compare different destinations or modes of transport.

During planning, I try to control costs that I can - transportation, accommodation and then not worry about anything else! Exception: food in London. I loved my trusty guidebook from Time Out Cheap Eats in London.

One strategy for tourist costs: passes for museums, transportation, etc.

Best tip: buy only what you need. If you don't plan to use the London Underground one day, buy a bus pass - just 2 pounds for unlimited use for the day.
