Travelling can be expensive and for most of us it can remain a dream, but it doesn’t need to be. There are many ways to travel on a budget whilst enjoying everything the world has to offer. Here are a few essential budget items to pack when travelling this year.
Shampoo bars are the saviours of beauty products for travellers. With some lasting for as long as 80 washes, they are the perfect budget essential whilst travelling. Solid shampoo bars can also double up as soap saving you more space for those all important souvenirs.
Whether you are exploring the sights in Europe or trekking around the temples of South East Asia, a sarong is a budget essential for all travellers. A sarong can keep you warm and looking stylish when worn as a scarf but it can also double up as a cover up for visiting some more religious areas in the world. You can even wear this versatile essential as a dress or skirt in warmer countries or simply as a beach towel.
No matter how adventurous you are, brushing your teeth with a dirty toothbrush after a long day is never enjoyable. Packing a toothbrush guard is essential for keeping dirt away from your toothbrush. They are lightweight and cost next to nothing but making a big impact on your daily enjoyment and hygiene when travelling.
Base layer top
A base layer top is essential for travellers. From hiking in the mountains to exploring a city, a base layer is an essential item for your travel wardrobe. This staple piece is perfect for keeping you warm whilst allowing your body to breathe and stay dry. Opt for a material that is sweat wicking to avoid it beginning to smell too quickly. Opt for a plain dark or neutral colour that can be paired with anything, dressed up for the evening or down during the day.
So wherever your travels take you, make sure you remember to pack these four budget essentials with you on your next trip away.
