After several trips and wanderings we learned that the preparation you will make long before traveling is the one that will determine the amount you are going to spend and in general the budget you will need. For us, low budget trips are a bet now and we are trying to organize our travels to such an extent as to control as accurately as possible the money we will spend!
We wrote 5 quick tips that we believe will help you do the same!

One of the most useful tips is to decide what kind of expenses you will make before you even visit your destination. For example, in what kind of hotel do you want to stay? Do you need luxury services like spa? Which restaurants do you want to know? If you are a fan of the museum you will have to decide which of these you will visit. Do you enjoy nightlife or do you prefer to spend your biggest budget on good food? The general rule here is that you need the basic expenses of a trip other than your stay and transport to meet your basic needs!
Set a daily budget!
