Smart ways to cut costs in Virgin Islands
Restaurants around the world have introduced a new concept, called the ‘happy hour’. It is nothing but a marketing strategy of attracting maximum customers by presenting them with alluring deals. However, this works for the customers pretty well. How? You get to eat food, maybe sip into a few beers, on a special discount or deal. Every budget travel addict must always be on the lookout of such deals, as food is what travelers spend on the most. When traveling to Virgin Islands especially when you’re alone, and want to experience a little rush ditch the hotel and try living in a camp. It is the most exciting way of spending your holidays, cozy tents with personal sleeping bags, campfire and some marshmallows, and if you’d like a few pints of brewed cocktails. Hotels generally cost hundreds of dollars for a single night, and by living in camps you’ll not only be making friends but you’ll also be paying a nominal amount.
The best way to cut down your costs while visiting the Virgin Islands is to visit in off seasons. These are the times when the businessmen in the island don’t earn as much, and are ready to settle for slightly profitable deals as well. Not in case of food maybe, but accommodations, and activities in the area costs less than it usually would.
