There are many lovely places in the world and many people rank Bali among them. The beaches are stunning and if you enjoy a holiday on the coast in a warm and pretty destination, then this could be just the place to go. However, many people think that it will be extremely expensive.
All holidays cost some money, but there are ways to keep holidays cheaper and so it is possible to visit anywhere you wish as long as you plan things carefully. You do need to be able to take some time in researching to find out where you could save money. You can do comparisons on hotels and flights and this could cut down the cost. Find out the cost of package holidays and compare them to booking things separately. You will need to go to a selection of companies to get a good idea. You may find that getting an economy flight with no extras can be a lot cheaper as can a lower rated hotel room. This could be the only way that you can make the trip affordable.
It is important to consider the cost of extras as well though. If your hotel is not all inclusive, you will need to be able to find money to pay for meals. You will also want to buy drinks and there will probably be other things to spend money on while you are there. You need to think about how much spending money you will need. You can keep costs down by eating lots at breakfast and maybe buying nibbles at supermarkets rather than always having a full meal out. You may be better off buying drinks at a bar rather than the hotel or even at a shop.
There are other ways that you can save money as well. Instead of paying for travellers cheques or using a credit card to pay for things, it can be much cheaper to use a currency card which you credit at home and then spend like a credit card but without the huge charges. You should also learn to quickly convert the currency of Bali so you can calculate how much things cost quickly and see whether they are expensive or not. You do not want to end up paying a fortune for something when you can get similar items for less elsewhere.
Holidays can cost a great deal of money but it is possible to do Bali on a Budget. You will need to spend some time doing some research and thinking about where you are prepared to take cuts. If you are going to spending most of your time on the beach, then worrying about paying extra for the hotel room and flights may not be worthwhile. Give it some thought and you could come up with a bargain holiday, in a beautiful destination. It is worth remembering that although it is fun spending a lot of money, your holiday can be just as good if you are on a budget.
