Budget Travel

When done well, budget travel has little to do with sacrifice or compromise and a lot to do with inventiveness and flexibility. While budgets, regardless of size, do determine the variety of choices available during a journey, they don’t have to determine that journey’s scope. In reality, any trip is as wide as you can imagine it. Travel + Leisure knows that a little extra effort pays a lot in dividends when it comes to budget travel. Its editors and contributors look for the best values, the smartest splurges, and the easiest cost-saving measures.
