If working from home became a new normal for you, you’re probably looking for a way to shake things up and make your routine more enjoyable. Workations are one of the best ways to do it, but they can turn into a huge expense. If you want to make sure you’re earning more than you’re spending, here’s how you can plan a budget-friendly work trip.

Right Accommodation

If you’re embarking on a short workation, Booking and Airbnb will do just fine, but they’re not the best pick for longer work trips. If you want to stick around in the same city for a few weeks—or even months—find short-term accommodation for the first few days and use that time to look for a local place that comes with a lower price tag.

Destination Choice

The destination you pick for your workation will largely determine how much money you’re going to spend. If you want to keep your trip budget-friendly, do a price comparison before hitting the road, and opt for a place where food, accommodation, and other expenses won’t cost you a fortune.

Planning Your Meals

Speaking of food, there’s nothing wrong with eating out and trying local specialties, but the expenses will pile up if you do it all the time. You can save a lot of money by booking accommodation with a private or shared kitchen and using it to prepare your own meals.
