16 Affordable Places To Go If You’re Young, Broke And Want To Travel The World

For some, traveling is not so much a hobby as it is a way of life, especially for those who are young, wild and free spirited.

Unfortunately spanning the globe doesn’t come cheaply, and getting the most bang for your buck is important, so some sacrifices have to be made — for example, staying in a hostel instead of that 4-star hotel (check out these killer hostels).

Keeping things cheap isn’t always easy for the world traveler, but for those who perpetually have the travel bug, here are a few places you must visit that won’t break the bank!

1. Auckland, New Zealand

If you are traveling to Auckland, New Zealand then the only thing that you may find expensive will be the flight, especially if you are flying from the US. But the food and accommodations are more than affordable here.

Arizona is hands down the most beautiful state in the U.S. It has it all, from forests to deserts and there’s something for everyone. Hike or camp or get a hotel room or timeshare, either way the rates of accommodations have gone down in recent years. Just don’t go from June to August unless you like it hot!

Greece is among the top visited countries as it is both cheap and beautiful. Travel blogger Nomadic Matt says, “Greece is a great deal, but you should stay in places like Crete instead of Santorini if you want to save money.” If you feel the need to check out Santorini while visiting Crete, it’s a seven hour ferry ride, but it might just be worth it.
