For a lot of people, Holy Week means an epic road trip with your family, loved ones, and close friends. Along with that strong desire to travel to great places, there is something else that you need to have to actually be able to go on a trip (both air travel and car travel) - and that is MONEY.

Whether you like it or not, money makes the world go round. Well, it is one of the most essential things in life. It is an unavoidable truth that money is the root source of practicality on earth.

If you have plans going on a road trip on Holy Week, which is happening from April 14 to April 20, 2019, you should prepare decent money. Traveling is expensive because it requires you to spend money, but you do not have to be rich to travel. Here, we have curated money-saving travel hacks on your adventure this coming Holy Week 2019.

Visita Iglesia In One Province

One of the most popular Holy Week panatas of Filipino is the traditional Seven Churches Visitation or Visita Iglesia. While you may be tempted to revisit ancient and notable churches in different provinces, you can save more money if you go to one province for your seven-church itinerary. Do not hop from one province to another for your Visita Iglesia. Provinces of Laguna, Cavite, and Batangas have a number of churches that you can visit. The City of Metro Manila is blessed with historical churches dated all the way back to 15th century. Each has its own history and amazing architecture.

You save time and money if you opt to visit one province for your Visita Iglesia. Moreover, you should focus on your reflection and recollection with visit to churches this Holy Week.

Choose Second-Best

You can save money by being thrifty. This should not be a problem because most Filipinos are kuripot anyway. You have to be a little more frugal when traveling.

Opt for Room For Rent if you need a place to sleep. It will not give you the quality of the guest experience offered by hotels. That’s for sure. If you need to pay for your lodging for a short amount of time, you don’t need to break the bank.

Bring Your Own Baon

One way to cut corners when traveling is to bring your own food. Not only is this a healthier option, but you can also save money by avoiding overpriced gourmet and fast food. You can save your cash for souvenirs by packing your own healthy and affordable meals to stay energized during your Holy Week vacation.

If you are going to the beach this coming Holy Week, just bring your own home-cooked meals rather than rely on the beach’s restaurants. Most Pinoys love to bring packed lunch and merienda for a day at the beach anyway.

The key to being able to afford a vacation is simply be practical. You should know when to skimp and splurge. You can save money on vacation, you just have to smart and work on a budget.
