As a college student looking to save a buck, the cheapest option is usually the best option. This mindset makes total sense — you want to gain the most experiences with the least cost. Airline tickets are often the biggest expense of the trip, but unfortunately, that’s just on top of accommodations, food and nightlife that go along with a trip. In response to this, many airlines have begun offering basic economy (BE) tickets.
These tickets are essentially the “no frills” option that’s easier on your wallet. While this may seem like the best option to most students, it is important to know exactly what you’re buying before you book the ticket. We break down restrictions and guidelines with the pros and cons of basic economy tickets so you can be sure you’re getting the ticket that’s right for you.Read More

Traveling the world is not that simple. Many of us wish it, but few of us actually accomplish it. It is out of the ordinary for a person to have a fixed job and be able to explore the world at the same time. Most people desire security, and they prefer having a nine to five instead of backpacking. And that is completely understandable. What most people don’t think about is that there is actually a way to do both: work and travel. Doesn’t that sound perfect? Writing is the missing link between the two. Travel writing is the perfect way to earn money as you travel.
Operating on a student budget means succumbing to the pop-tarts, popcorn, and ramen diet every once in awhile (yeah, mom, I lied about eating my vegetables).
