Look for Flights One or Two Months before
If you live far distance from Udaipur, then you must look for a flight one or two months before that will help you save a higher amount of money if planning in a group. Also, if you are nearly 600-1000 km away from Udaipur, you must opt for a train journey. Remember, we are planning a low budget trip and not a luxurious comfy trip with all facilities.
Book Your Stay Near Transport Facilities
You must check on for hotels in Udaipur near the railway station
or bus stand. This is one of the most important aspects as it could reduce a huge amount of transportation cost. A hotel in Udaipur near bus stand
or railway station would allow you to stay in the centre of the city. Also, you could have a glimpse of walk in the city area and explore for yourselves.
Book Budget-Friendly Hotel in Safe/Main Locations
Everybody, eyes here! The hotel booking should be done within the main areas of Udaipur city like HiranMagri, Udaipole, Surajpole, etc. If we talk about a budget-friendly hotel in HiranMagri area which is very close to all transportation and other facilities, Meenakshi hotel would be the prime choice for everyone.
Carry Your Own Food & Beverages
I know this is a catastrophic task to be done as everybody like grabbing outside or local food of the town. You can do that for once in a day but not every time when you feel hungry. Try to carry your own food and snacks. You can do this by renting a hotel with kitchen facilities. Also, if you are exploring with kids then definitely you have to bear a lot of expenses to fuel their stomach.
Avoid Minor Expenses
While travelling and exploring, shopping is mandatory for ladies and now it’s common in males too. Purchase only one or two items as a souvenir from the “City of Lakes” to make your trip a memorable one. Usually, people buy a bunch of things which are not likely to be useful and they are even charged for high prices.
Don’t Go Over Budget
I know it’s a human tendency to go with the flow when we are on a trip. But not in the case of a budget-friendly trip. Suppose, you see a place with cool kinds of stuff happening around there, you must go on. But remember to be aware of people around you who can ask you to pay off extra for nothing.
Bargain for Every Little Thing
Bargaining is a type of art and not everyone has the ability to bargain. And yes, one should not bargain everywhere but only where you feel like. Tourists visiting Udaipur are fascinated by its shopping market. Let me give you a pro tip on this. Bargain like you are a local in this town or you are an expert. You will see the results.
Enjoy Scenic Beauties than Expensive Restaurants
I know it’s hard to stop your heart going for a place to have dinner at the lakeside restaurant. Feels like missing something or incomplete. But you can enjoy your snacks or a cup of coffee near lakeside shore and enjoy the peace of places like AmbraiGhat, Hanuman Ghat, Rani Road, Pichola Lake. Believe me, it will make you feel more amazing and romantic than those costly restaurants.
The central areas of Udaipur including the old city, ghats, city palace, mesmerizing temples and scenic beauties are all at a walking distance from each other. Go explore by walking and finding in the details of each place saving you from fuel expenses. Udaipur is a great place for stopping at one of the ghats and enjoying the peace around there.
Create a Budget & Stick to it
We always splurge uncesseraliy where we should not and at the end of the trip, we find ways to save money. Why couldn’t we stick to a budget and also treat ourselves for a hassle-free trip? It is better to create a perfect budget and stick to that budget only for keeping yourself on track.
Planning a trip to Udaipur may cost both low and very expensive in different perspectives. As already said, it depends upon the matter of choices. If you are looking for a budget-friendly trip to the “Venice of the East” it will never cost you high as you think. The only thing required is proper planning, budget creating, and sticking on it.
