    Of course. There are many ways to stay within your budget. Most of the time, many tourist attractions as well as hotels have low and high seasons. If you travel during the low season, rates are generally lower. Another advantage that students have now are online sales for airfare, or bidding on rooms on sights such as hotwire.com. Sites where you can name your price are generally cheaper. Once there, a great way to save money is to prepare your own meals. If you stay at a hostel or bed and breakfast, most will allow you kitchen privileges. Cooking your meals is also a great way to meet other travelers. Also, try to walk to as many places as you can to save money or public transportation where possible instead of taxis.
