My husband and I travel every year at least 2 times abroad aside from local trips. We usually get the travel package that includes the airfare, accommodation and airport transfers. On our first trip to Singapore, we were like pampered tourists because my husband is scared that we would have a problem with the transportation. But in our later travels, we have learned to buy plane tickets by ourselves, get hotel bookings online and take the taxi from the airport and from thereon when touring. When we computed the expenses, the figure showed that we have saved at least 30% from the usual travel package that we were availing of. Now our travels anywhere are on our own and we just try to make research on our needs in the destination like transportation.
