Travelling to a foreign country is always an enjoyable experience; unfortunately, it can also be a very expensive experience. For this reason, you’ll need any technique possible to save money while you’re visiting Spain. One way to shave your budget is to invest in a Spain SIM card, but what are some other ways to save money?

One way you can save money while you’re in Spain is to plan everything so that there will be no surprise costs. Keep an itinerary and map out everything; this means food, gasoline and hotel costs. You should also factor in any special attractions or experiences in Spain that you are planning to experience. If you create an itinerary with a budget it may be tempting to stray from your plan and spend more but you will be thankful in the end if you stay on track.

Another way to save money is to only spend cash. Cash is the smarter choice because many places charge you a hidden fee when you use your debit card or credit card. However, you should always keep your cards with you just in case. For larger purchases, some places in Spain offer a discount for customers who use cash. The most important thing to remember when dealing with cash is you have to hide it well. Many travelers invest in a money belt.

Next, eat like you’re Jack Kerouac; meaning, eat like you’re hitchhiking your way across Europe. Most backpackers will buy sandwich stuff and picnic instead of eating out at restaurants. You should especially avoid restaurants located near a tourist attraction because these will be especially expensive. However, if you feel the need to visit a restaurant you should visit a restaurant frequented by locals instead of tourists. These restaurants often have tourists menus, which offer fixed-price meals and the cuisine is a lot more authentic as well. The simple practice of just watching how much your food costs will save you a ton of money and give you peace of mind.

As mentioned, getting a Spain SIM card is probably the best way you can save money. These cards allow your phone to work as if it were bought in Spain, which will save you tons of money. In fact, all incoming calls and texts are absolutely free. And, you won’t have to pay for any long-term contracts. Your card will be active for 90 days and you’ll only pay for what you use. Plus, you’ll get your own Spanish number free of charge. This will save you money because you won’t have to deal with those overseas fees.

Travelling to a new country is a valuable experience you don’t want to miss. But, this doesn’t mean you can’t save money while you have the time of your life. So, look into getting your very own International SIM card while you’re in
Spain. You’ll be grateful you made this decision.
