The use of a rucksack may start from your university studies. This is the time; you will take the backpacking trips in a group or alone during the gap-year. In the present world, people across the globe go for backpacking trips. They seek wilderness adventures irrespective of age and sexes.
In the present time, you will get cheap flight tickets and hotel accommodation packages. This will enable you to take any 3-day backpack trips. It is advisable to follow the below-mentioned 3-day backpacking checklist. It will enable you for easeful backpack travel. The ten tips for budget-friendly backpacking are as follows:
Buy an All-season Backpack
I used to take backpack trips in most seasons that I could. These are backpacking trips to Europe and South East Asia. I prefer the best backpack for air travel. An all-season backpack is the best to carry across the globe.
The popular brands design them in the dimensions matching the International and domestic air-travel luggage rules. These backpacks will have the symbols with a waterproof, fireproof, and tamper-proof signs.
Buy a Waterproof Backpack
I prefer a rucksack with the waterproofing features. This enables me to protect stuff inside my backpack. This is the best for adventure trials. I can carry my backpack with me in trials leading to a stream of waters, rivers and travelling through a boat.
However, you must select a backpack with a full cover on the zip line, buckles and the top front.
Buy the One with Side Pockets
I always need my phone, map book, toiletries, and notepad to take from my backpack side pockets. This will save my time to open my backpack and search inside my pack.
This will be inconvenient during in public places or transport. A backpack with many side pockets will ease your backpack travel. You must see they are with zip locks, button press lock or with lace type locking.
Buy a Durable Backpack
I preferred a durable backpack, which is budget friendly too. I did this by checking online and brought the best backpack by checking it’s all features and comparing their prices.
I am a frequent backpack traveller, and I wish my backpack to be lightweight, intact, water resistant, and fireproof and long-last too. This will save my money on buying a new one, as I am a frequent traveller.
Prepare a Backpacking Check-List
I always prepare my 3-day backpacking checklist in advance to make sure I carry only the necessary stuff for my backpack trip. This will enable me to travel without any tension. This will also avoid the last hour rush to pack things, and some item will be missed to pack. Buying a left out material from outside will cost you more.
I used to prepare a list and see that I carry the important stuff for my journey. I used to plan a 3-day advance so that I will not miss out any of the important things on my backpack trip.
Use Public Transport
The public transport is much cheaper than hiring a private vehicle. It is advisable to get transport passes for the bus, train, and local trams. This will save more money on transportation.
The passes are much cheaper than taking individual tickets. I use to speak with the public. This makes me know which the shortest route is and how to reach a nearby attraction by travelling through the mode of public transportations.
Stay in Budget-Friendly Hotels
I always prefer to stay in a budget-friendly hotel. It is advisable to check before your trip starts. You must find such a hotel, which serves food. I used to book cheap hotels in advance and get some discounts as backpackers.
The next option is to walk through the streets and check out the lodging price. I used the find by making the comparison and the facility a hotel offer for that price.
Carry Bag Locks while You Travel
Carrying bag locks are the best for backpack travellers. An airliner will not accept my baggage without locks. You cannot keep them in a cloakroom too. It will be a safety by travelling in public transport vehicles. It will be safe to keep my backpack in the hotel and go outside.
The lock will safeguard from thefts. This is because; I have seen many local miscreants trying to take stuff from my backpack when it is placed on the ground and in public places. When your backpack has a number lock, you must memorise them to unlock anytime.
Use your Student ID Card for Deals and Discounts
I have saved a lot of money by showing my student ID cards and got the exemption from entry fee in various attraction places. This is the best identity to get discount on your backpack tour. I used to check before entering a place, and a check is there any concession is there for the students.
I have sued this online and availed discount by pre-booking my backpack travel.
Pack Your Backpack Intelligently
I always pack my clothes by rolling them properly. This will give me more space to pack my electronic items like a laptop, sports gears, and my helmet. I pack in such a way that I put those things in the last, which I use the least. It will be better to place your tent kit on the top of the backpack.
I never, put my shoes inside my backpack. Instead, I used to tie up on the sides.
I hope the above-mentioned 3-day backpacking checklist and tip will help the backpack travellers. I recommend buying the cheap and best backpack for your backpacking trips. However, you must see they are with international standards to meet the travel baggage guidelines on flight, ship, train, and bus.
Preparing a backpacking checklist is necessary for all, who wish to take backpacking travel. There are many destinations in Europe, which are travel-friendly for the backpackers. These are the best for students, temporary workers and others who wish to take a leisure trip.
