The Best Part About Cheap Travel Destinations

The best part about all of these cheap travel locations is the longer you stay, the cheaper your daily costs become! Buying groceries in bulk, renting a cheap apartment and living like a local can really drive down your costs. If you can do that and find a cheap plane ticket to boot, you’ve got a pretty good deal on your hands!
