Travel is an expensive activity and especially if it is a world travel. Have you ever looked over the glossy brochures for your dream destinations; they would cost you thousands of dollars just for a single 10 days trip. Yes you heard it right; and there are loads of destinations to be covered. But does this mean that your dream destinations will be a dream only. Would you not be able to travel to the various places around the world without those heaps of money? But all this is a myth, if explored carefully. You do not need all that money to travel the world. The travel operators make sure that you feel this way but it is completely the opposite.
In fact staying home is more expensive that travelling the world. What are the basic things that are needed while on a travel; food, accommodations and transportation to a large extent. All these things can be achieved without much of a hassle. While you are at home, you pay the rent, buy food or go out to eat, drive yourself or take a bus and that is exactly what you have to do when you travel the world.
The only different thing would be that you would be exploring a lot of new things and places. The tour operators provide you the accommodations of their choice along with the entertainment they wish you would do and provide a shuttle bus that would take you out as per their timings and to top it up they would charge you a bomb. This is exactly what the travel operators do. They also succeed in doing so with every other person. But with a little bit of research and thinking, you can plan your trip without being stuck to a schedule even while on a holiday trip. So make sure to travel as per your plans.
