Save Tons of Money On Travel Costs With Inverse Vacation Planning

Patrick Allan , Gizmodo Media

Between the plane tickets, hotel rooms, and meals, visiting the places on your bucket list can get pretty expensive-even if you go deal hunting. If you want to save some money while satisfying your wanderlust, start with the deals and go from there.

Inverse vacation planning, as Trent Hamm at The Simple Dollar explains, is when you find travel deals first, then plan your entire vacation around them. For example, instead of planning on going to South America, then looking for deals for that particular vacation, you look for any deals you can find, regardless of location, and just go with the flow. You may not get to go to South America like you planned, but you'll still get to visit somewhere interesting.

This approach to travel is perfect for solo adventurers and frugal family tourists alike. If you let go of your wants and follow the deals, you could end up with the trip of a lifetime for a fraction of the cost.
