The Seven Wonders of the World are there for all of us to admire but sometimes getting there is a little out of our price range. They are some of the most visited places on Earth, but we are left wondering how because they are so expensive to travel to. Luckily we have some tricks that will make sure you can check off the Seven Wonders from your bucket list at a fraction of the cost.
Get your timing right
The first thing to consider when looking to book a trip to visit any of the Seven Wonders is to look at the time of year. If you’re heading there in peak time, then you’re going to be spending way more money than if you go at a different time of the year.
Most of the Seven Wonders are cheaper to visit from April to June, except for the Taj Mahal, which is cheaper to visit in November. Heading to these wonders during the off-season means your bank balance will be healthier and you’ll also be able to enjoy them with fewer people around.
No matter what time of the year you decide to go, you’re going to have to buy tickets to the Wonders. Why not save yourself both some time and some money by booking them in advance. Most places will offer you some discount for advanced bookings so why not take advantage of that when visiting the Seven Wonders?
Keeping your eye out for any promotions the attractions are offering is another way in which you can save yourself some much-needed cash.
Spread them out
Some people try to take in the Seven Wonders in one trip, but that usually means they don’t get to spend much time looking at them. Plus, if you’re booking yourself a round-the-world trip, then you know that cost is going to add up.
Traveling isn’t all that cheap so maybe take your time and visit one at a time. That way you can take them in at a slower pace, plus you don’t have to frantically travel to the next destination, which adds more stress and cost.
One of the most important things you can possibly do to save yourself some money is to shop around, especially when it comes to accommodation. These attractions are all surrounded by hotels just waiting to charge you an arm and a leg for the pleasure of staying with them. Not much further afield will be cheaper places to stay, or you could go even cheaper and look at hostels or B&Bs.
If you’re traveling on a budget, you’ll want to save money where you can and your accommodation, along with your travel, are likely to be the most expensive. Making real savings on these will make the Seven Wonders of the World accessible for those traveling on a budget.
Many of us want to see all of the world, but sadly we just don’t have the cash. Following these tips will help make sure you keep costs low but still get to witness some of humanity’s greatest achievements.
