Description

I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOU ALL THE TIPS on how to travel on a budget to NYC: You MAY have to pay extra for carry-on bag, checked luggage, printing boarding pass at the airport, early boarding, seat reservation, drink or snack on the plane, ticket change or cancellation. BUT IN OUR CASE, WE DID NOT PAY ANY OF THOSE FEES. WE DO NOT HAVE ISSUES WITH OUR SEATS. WE DON'T NEED MUCH STUFF FOR 4 DAYS. ALWAYS KNOW WHAT ARE THE BASIC NECESSITIES TO TRAVEL AND YOU WILL BE GOOD. WE ONLY HAD ONE PERSONAL ITEM WHICH IS FREE OF CHARGE. WE WANT TO TRAVEL FOR LESS AND JUST CARE ABOUT ARRIVING TO OUR DESTINATION, WE DID NOT BUY SEATS AND FOR EARLY BOARDING. ALWAYS KEEP IN MIND TO CHECK IN ONLINE 24 HRS BEFORE YOUR DEPARTURE SO YOU CHARGES WILL NOT INCUR ON THE DAY OF YOUR FLIGHT. FOODS AND SNACKS DURING THE FLIGHT AREN'T AN ISSUE AS WELL. YOU CAN TAKE SANDWICHES OR LIGHT SNACKS AT THE AIRPORT. WE ONLY PAID $124 ROUND TRIP PLANE TICKETS PER PERSON. TAXES INCLUDED. WE ALSO BOOKED AIRPORT PICK UP AND DROP OFF ONLINE AT AIRPORT SHUTTLES.COM
IT WILL GIVE YOU A LOT OF OPTIONS WHAT TYPE OF VEHICLE DEPENDING ON THE NUMBER OF PERSONS.WE CHOSE THE STANDARD VEHICLE THAT COULD SEAT UP WE PAID $60 ONE WAY FROM LA GUARDIA AIRPORT TO OUR AIRBNB IN BROOKLYN AND PRICE WAS THE SAME FOR THE PICK UP FROM BROOKLYN TO THE AIRPORT. SO, TOTAL FOR THE DROP OFF AND PICK UP WAS $120 FOR THE THREE OF US OR $40 EACH FOR THE ROUNDTRIP.

I BELIEVE HOTELS IN NEW YORK ARE VERY EXPENSIVE. IT RANGES FROM $150 FOR TWO PERSONS AND ABOVE PER NIGHT IN THE MONTH OF APRIL. HOWEVER, THE CHEAPEST ALTERNATIVE THAT WILL MAKE YOU SAVE THAT HARD EARNED MONEY IS NOTHING ELSE BUT THE AIRBNB. THE TRIP TO NEW YORK WAS OUR FIRST AIRBNB EXPERIENCE! JUST GO AHEAD AND BOOK AT AIRBNB.COM OR SIMPLY DOWNLOAD THE APP.
I BOOKED FOR 3 NIGHTS WHICH WE ONLY PAID $203 FOR THREE guests OR $67 PER GUEST FOR 3 NIGHTS . AND IT WILL BE an addtl $15 PER NIGHT AFTER THE THIRD guest. SO IT IS A GREAT ADVANTAGE TO THOSE WHO TRAVEL IN GROUP!
THE PLACE, IS A 2 STORY APARTMENT AND WE STAYED IN A LARGE PRIVATE ROOM IN THE FIRST FLOOR WITH FULL SIZED BED AND TWIN SIZED FOLDING BED FOR THE 3RD GUEST. AND WE HAVE SUCH AN AMAZING HOST, VERY KIND AND HOSPITABLE! WE HAVE SHARED BAHTROOM AND KITCHEN. ALSO THE HOST PROVIDES BASIC TOILETRIES.WE SAVED FROM BUYING FOODS OR EATING OUT BEC WE ARE PROVIDED BY BREAKFAST ITEMS. KITCHEN HAS EVERYTHING NEEDED FOR BASIC COOKING AND STORING FOOD. THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS ALSO CLOSE TO MANY RESTAURANTS, BARS AND TONS OF PLACES THAT DELIVER FOOD.LARGE SUPERMARKETS ARE SHORT WALK AWAY, SHOPPING AREA NEARBY WITH LOTS OF STORES FOR ANYTHING YOU MIGHT NEED. THE HOST IS VERY KIND AND HOSPITABLE AND THE BEST PART IS, L/M TRAINS IS 7 MINS WALK AND WILL TAKE YOU TO MANHATTAN IN 20 MINS! AND WELL AS MANY BUSES. WE HAD TAKEN THE TRAIN MOST OF OUR TRIP. WE BOUGHT THE $10 REFILLABLE METROCARD FOR THE WHOLE DAY.

YOU CAN TAKE LYFT OR UBER IF YOU THINK YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW TO GET TO A PARTICULAR PLACE. AS FOR ME, I PREFER LYFT. FOR 5 MILES WE WERE CHARGED $27 WHICH IS NOT BAD AT ALL. IF WE SPLIT THE PAYMENT FOR THE 3 OF US IT WILL BE $9 PER PERSON. I SUGGEST TO TAKE THE TRAIN AS LONG AS YOU ARE ABLE TO OR YOU CAN ALWAYS ASK DIRECTIONS FROM THE LOCALS.

AS FOR THE FOODS, WE PREPARED OUR OWN OUR FIRST DAY, ALSO WE ALWAYS MAKE SURE TO TAKE BREAKFAST IN THE MORNING FROM OUR PLACE BEFORE WE HEAD OFF TO PLACES AND WE JUST STOP BY FOR A NEW YORK PIZZA IN MANHATTAN FOR LUNCH. WE DID NOT GO TO ANY HIGH END RESTAURANTS, WE ATE WHAT WE CAN GET IN THE PLACES WE VISIT.

GO TO PLACES LIKE BROOKLYN BRIDGE, BROOKLYN HEIGHTS WHICH DO NOT ASK FOR FEES. WE ONLY PAID TWICE FOR THE TWO PLACES WE WENT THAT IS THE LIBERTY ISLAND TOUR AND PAID $25.50 PER PERSON FOR ADULTS, $16 FOR THE KIDS AND $21 FOR SENIORS. ALSO AT THE TOP OF THE ROCK IN ROCKEFELLER CENTER FOR ABOUT $37 PER PERSON. WE ONLY WENT AND PAID FOR THE PLACES THAT IS WORTH AND WILL MAKE YOU PROUD TO TELL YOUR FRIENDS YOU HAVE BEEN TO THE PLACE WHERE NEW YORK IS KNOWN FOR.

OVERALL EXPENSES I SPENT FOR MYSELF IN THAT TRIP FOR 4 DAYS IS AROUND $340 PLUS THE EATING OUT AND SHOPPING FOR SOUVENIRS WHICH I SUGGEST TO DO IT IN CHINATOWN! YOU CAN ALWAYS HAGGLE THE PRICE. I WOULD SAY $380 TO $400 FOR 4 DAYS IN NEW YORK.IF YOU ARE PICKY ENOUGH AND WANTS COMFORT IN EVERYTHING YOU DO WHEN YOU TRAVEL THEN THIS MIGHT NOT BE FOR YOU. BUT FOR THE ADVENTURERS LIKE ME WHO LOVES TAKING PICTURES, DOING VLOGS, CREATING MOMENTS AND ALWAYS ON THE GO WHO IS WILLING TO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES THEN THIS TRAVEL ON A BUDGET IS FOR YOU!!
