How To Save Money On Your India Trip

my india trip

Before I begin, it must be said that my India trip had been a pleasant one. I had planned it around a few of my favorite cities and destinations, which I had seen on various brochures and travel magazines as well as on my own. However, there were some points that I had missed when planning my trip, and these points led me to make some changes before I set off on my journey.

India is a country that is constantly changing. It has an active and vibrant economy that is based primarily on tourism. This is a major reason why you can find many tourists visiting India each year, many of whom will never return to India for the rest of their lives. As such many tourists in India will experience some unpleasant incidents while on holiday in India, which is another reason why you need to be extra careful while planning your trip.

So, what was the biggest mistake that I made while planning my India trip? There were actually two mistakes that I made while planning my trip. One was that I did not plan my tour around my main destination. For example, while I was planning my trip to Goa I did not plan for my accommodation at Goa.

Do Research On

Instead, I did a little research on the web, which proved that the best place to stay while in India is Hyderabad. Hyderabad is one of the biggest cities in India and offers you a great blend of old and new. If you want to see and do all the important events that take place in India, then you will not want to miss Hyderabad. As such, Hyderabad should be included in your list of tourist places.

You Can Also Use Travel agents Service

Secondly, while I was planning my trip I used the services of some travel agents. While these agents have the advantage of providing you with information and planning tips, they also have the disadvantage of charging you high commission fees. Although the services that they provide are good, I would not advise that you use the services of these agents if you do not require the services of them. As such, if you plan your own tour then you will be able to get a better value for your money.

Finally, I decided to go on a train trip during my India trip. While this was a good idea, I failed to plan it properly. The main reason for this mistake is that I did not decide to go on a sightseeing tour, which is often included in the package that you will be offered by many of the tour operators.

On the other hand, going on a sightseeing tour will enable you to see a lot more historical sites than on a tour to any other part of the country. For example, on the train you will be able to see the places where Mahabalesha Ramakya and Laxmi Vilasana were burnt. This is one thing that you cannot see on a tour to India.

Number Of Tourist Places Available In India

You also get to see all the beautiful tourist places that you missed when you were on a tour to India before. For example, you will be able to see places like Khajuraho, the ruins of Rama Temple in Varanasi and the Chittorgarh Fort. These are just some of the places where you will be able to witness the past glory and the present glory of India Tourism.

The biggest reason for my choosing a train over any other mode of travel while I was planning my India tour is that it is much cheaper than any other mode of transportation. While a plane ticket from Delhi to Agra will cost you $10, your train ticket will cost only $3. Therefore, even if you want to visit some of the most important places in India in the cheapest possible way then you should opt for a train.

Last but not least, while I was planning my India trip I decided to book a luxury train. Although I knew that this was going to cost me more than a normal train ticket, I still planned to book it. I am glad that I did because I have now seen the beauty of Jaisalmer Fort, the love temple at Pushkar, the beautiful temples of Mumbai, and the gorgeous hill stations of Madhya Pradesh, etc.


I would recommend that you book a cheap train ticket during your India trip. If you do not plan to book a ticket on a train then I would advise that you choose a sightseeing tour.
