How to save money on travel: 10 really useful life hacks

Vacation is always not cheap, especially recently, when the exchange rate and the Euro are rapidly creeping up. But even despite this, most people manage to plan their vacation in such a way to get the most impressions, but not to overpay. Passion.ru talked to “experienced travelers” and learned some life hacks for you to see the world and not go broke.
