Overspending Abroad:  The Main Culprits

Plan Your Budget Early: Budget for your trip well before departure, covering major expenses like lodging, transportation, and tours.

Stay Financially Disciplined:  Maintain your budgeting discipline even while vacationing to avoid overspending on treats and souvenirs.

Be Smart with International Phone Plans:  Use Wi-Fi for calls and social media, and check if your cell plan already covers international roaming to avoid extra fees.

Avoid Tourist Traps:  Skip gift shops and restaurants in touristy areas; opt for local stores and eateries for better quality and prices.

Pack Wisely:  Pack lightly to avoid airline weight fees but bring essential items to avoid costly local purchases.
