Any holiday – even the most long-awaited and magical must have its own budget, which, in turn, has a fairly strict framework.
Remember that traveling to the USA can be surprisingly not expensive, and simply incredibly expensive – it all depends on how you plan your budget and what your preferences will be during the trip.
If you purchase a tour to America from one of the specialized tour operators, then you yourself will not have to think and act: everything is planned, agreed and prepared for you, all you have to do is choose the offer with an acceptable cost – and the “deal in the hat”.
If you, yielding to the spirit of adventurism, decided to plan a trip to America on your own, then the first thing you should worry about is housing.
This could be an expensive room in a Hilton hotel, a rented apartment, a cheap room in a motel, and (a much more acceptable option) – an economical and affordable hostel.
If you decide to look at rural America and absorb the notorious country-style, then you will be perfectly suited for camping in all respects.
In the most extreme case, there is cheap housing offered by organizations such as the YMCA and the YWCA.
Next, you should think about transport, which will help you realize your cherished dream and get to know America.
The first to come to mind is the bus as the most common and inexpensive way to travel the United States.
Remember that Greyhound Bus routes can be found throughout the United States and there are unlimited travel tickets and special rates for travelers.
But the bus has its drawbacks: in view of the vastness of the territory of the States, traveling around the country by bus takes days.
During travel, food and accommodation care falls directly on the shoulders of the tourists themselves.
Often, tourists come to the conclusion that to fly is cheaper and not only in terms of cash costs, but also in terms of time spent on the road.
Take note of the fact that most US airlines again have reduced fares for many flights for travelers.
There are also such tricks as booking a ticket at two ends, on a Saturday night or three weeks before the date of dispatch – in these cases you can also count on preferential rates.
According to many tourists, Amtrak – the US railway system – is a real disappointment.
BUT for those traveling between major cities, traveling by train may be the best option: it is cheaper, and in some cases even faster.
It is also possible to get an unlimited travel ticket, which will be valid for 30 days (for only $ 300 – $ 550). And, of course, the most romantic way to see America remains: private transport.
Renting a cheap car in the USA can be quite easy, so traveling on a rented vehicle is considered one of the most acceptable in the context of this country.
