The age of 20-30 is the best time for travel. You are young, healthy and fit and you feel like going anywhere. But, the only constraint that is stopping you is budget and money. The advent of multiple travel blog and budget travel deal offering websites, travel blogs offering accurate information and maps and prices, with live feeds and comments and pictures from fellow budget, travelers, will keep you informed and you no longer have to postpone your long dreamed travel plan.

The technology will only continue to advance and connect people, and make travel cheaper as you become more informed. “And the more informed you are, the easier it will be for you to know how to save money,” says Kelly Speca an avid traveler and travel blog writer. Below she has mentioned the reason why 2015 is going to be the year of budget travelers-

The growth of websites and travel blogs

 

Blogs for offbeat travel destinations, like Uncornered Market, Roads and Kingdoms, and Wandering Earl, feature destination guides and stories for visits to more remote places in the world. You can now find little, local restaurant, or off-the-beaten-path tourist destination in a click of a mouse on Google search.

Instead of being limited to magazines and guidebooks as the information gatekeepers, travelers today have accesses through their Smartphone’s and tablets to fellow travelers posting content, pictures and their views for every destination in the world.

Some of the favorite websites for sharing economy deals are:

Couchsurfing (accommodation)

Airbnb (accommodation)

Vayable (tours)

BlaBlaCar (ridesharing)

EatWith (meals)

Everything is online!

Better flight search options

It is now easier to find cheap flights and hidden deals, which were almost impossible to find earlier, thanks to multinational flight search engines.

The best and robust search engines include a mixture of both smaller regional carriers and budget airlines. Some search sites also provide information on mistake fares and flight sales, which alerts you to a deal.

Some of the best flight deal site are-

The Flight Deal

Airfarewatchdog

Holiday Pirates

Skyscanner

Momondo

Website like Busbud and Rome2Rio have made finding ground transportation in off the road destinations much easier by posting fares and route information online that used to be hard to find.

The rise of budget airlines

Now if you want to travel between continents, you have a plethora of budget options, rather than depending on traditional expensive airlines. Budget airlines like Virgin Blue etc. now offers many service on long-haul routes, making it possible for you to bounce around the world from one country to another for little money. For example Norwegian Airlines allows you to fly to Europe and from Bangkok for about $250 each-way. Air Asia X offers deals super cheap deals around Asia and Australia for as little as $100 each way. Indian and Middle Eastern airlines offer cheap flights throughout the subcontinent and Africa.

America is a paradise for young, singles and wild bachelors and bachelorettes. The singles-scene category excels in the entertainment, socializing and off-hours attractions, which ranks highly for nightclubs, dive bars, and great diners, where there might be a good of you locking eyes with someone over a late-night order of fries and some beer or rum.

However, there are also singles-friendly cities in America, which put-up a creative spin on a popular meet-up spot. There are plenty of big attractions, like the Brooklyn Museum to the San Diego Museum of Art, offer monthly happy hours, which woos art loving singles with cocktails and live music. In city like Boston, something called Trivia Nights is popular in one of the cities coolest book stores, while in downtown Los Angeles, you can play old-school video games with your beau, in one of the popular bars.

There is also another strategy exploiting a cities single scenes, as mentioned by Kelly Speca in her popular blog, that’s by exploring the activities the locals of the city love most. For example New-Orleans citizens love to live and breathe festivals, like Jazz Fest and even Creole Tomato Fest. People there love it despite the heat and humidity of the city.

But, by far the best singles city in America has to be Miami- with gorgeous young locals with toned body, a wide variety of nightclubs with every possible themes, and wild, adventures streak among the locals as long as the beaches, and an all year round temperate weather, Miami has the weather and a flair for throwing the biggest and best party in USA. With hot-spots like the Wall at the W South Beach, and Cavalli, the Italian-restaurant-meets-cocktail-lounge. You can enthrall yourself with a ego-boost by getting a selfie, when celebs grace the premises. There are other trendy hangouts too, like Tamarina, which are a little more accessible to the non-red-carpet crowd. Tamarina features an oyster bar and alfresco champagne bar, coupled with reasonably priced happy hour, which will not burn a hole in your pocket. Who knows you might meet and get lucky other hot singles strolling through galleries and past street art on the Wynwood Art Walks, which is held the second Saturday of the month.
