It is recommended for the tourists to use the public transport as it is less expensive as compared to private transportation or rent a car service. Tourists can also avail car pooling facility to minimize their budget. And there's also the ride sharing app in today's modern technology days that allows you to travel for free sometimes if not, possibly cheaper than any types of transportation. 

3.     Booking of accommodation via the internet

This is the most favourite option to travel within a limited budget. It is better to book the accommodation in advance to get access the discounts and better rates, and also give yourself more choices. Another benefit is that you will get details about the hotel, room size and facilities online that can make your trip more reliable and easy. Booking directly with the hotel is often a good option too!
