16. Eat for cheap.
Buy groceries to keep in your hotel room for breakfast, a picnic lunch or a romantic dinner. Most hotels will provide you with a mini-fridge and microwave for free if you ask.

17. Splurge on lunch.
If you eat your bigger meal at lunch and a lighter meal at dinner, you’ll save money and still enjoy delicious local food. For dinner, consider splitting a meal, to keep costs down.

18. Learn the language.
You get started on learning the language for free with Duolingo. Knowing a little of the local language can help you avoid scammed or being seen as a naïve tourist.
