Free Things Backpackers Love
Backpackers are cheap. Extremely cheap. So cheap that if you give them an option to do something that costs anything or to do nothing, they will usually go for doing nothing. And if there’s one thing a backpacker loves more than something cheap, it’s something free. Here are some free things backpackers love
Free Things Backpackers Love:
Be real, how many times have you picked a hostel based on whether or not they’ve offered free breakfast? Chances are you always go for the free breakfast option, whether it’s toast or make-your-own pancakes. Either will do.
Free Walking Tours
Any backpacker will tell you, free walking tours are the best way to see a city. They might say they’re actually tip-based tours, but disappear just before it ends and you don’t have to pay a Euro.
Who wants to go to a boring museum on their travels? Oh, it’s free? I guess I could do that.
“Happy hour” and “Ladies Night” are the backpacker’s two favorite phrases.
Free Hostel Stays
Stay six nights get a seventh free? I guess I’m staying a week.
You only have a four-bed dorm instead of the twelve-bed I paid for? Yes, I’m fine with that.
What’s the first thing a backpacker asks when getting to a hostel, a coffee shop, or a restaurant? “Is there wifi?” And if there is no wifi, you know you’re not buying anything there.
Why else would anyone become a travel blogger? Ask any backpacker nowadays and they have a blog in hopes of scoring free travel. Press trips, comped stays, free activities? I don’t know why everyone doesn’t have a travel blog yet.
Hey backpackers: what’s your favorite free thing when backpacking?
