Most people travel to a city, town or other place away from their home periodically either for business related work or on a holiday. However the daily expenses when a person is travelling will be significantly higher than the expenses while living at home, because more money has to be spent on transportation, boarding, lodging and food. While employees of large companies and other wealthy individuals can afford the most expensive hotels and restaurants when they travel, small business owners, professionals, students and others with a limited budget will find that making their travel plans well in advance and using coupons can help them save a large amount of money during their outstation trip.
One of the major expenses while travelling is the cost of one or more air, rail or bus ticket to the destination depending on the location and distance from the home town. Most people prefer to travel by air as it is the fastest mode of travel from one place to another.
