Best Time To Visit
Travelling creates excitement and memories but unfortunately, it can also be a source of stress! You can approach your big trip to Kuwait on a budget by knowing the best time to visit. Our number one travel hack for you is to avoid travelling in November, June, or January as the prices for flights and hotels will skyrocket. According to travel data, December and Spring are the least expensive periods to visit Kuwait.
Booking Hotel on a Budget
It can be a stumbling block to your budget to book a hotel as they’re often expensive and you start to think to yourself “how will I enjoy the rest of my trip now?” but it doesn’t have to be this way for your Kuwait trip.
When visiting Kuwait on a budget, our travel hack for you is to book the Royal Inn Hotel which is in Al Salmiya. It ticks all the boxes for your big trip; it’s budget-friendly, and it’s located close to the city and to the local beach. Just be sure to take care of your shoes, especially with all the sand around!
Everybody loves food (we love it as much as we love doing laundry!). To make your travelling experience even better, eat food on a budget. Avoid the expensive restaurants, buy local. Kuwait has a lot of local street food and restaurants that cater to the locals.
To save you money, we recommend the area of Kuwait City souk; home to a variety of cuisines and prices that are budget-friendly!
If you spill food or drink on your clothes, don’t worry, we’ll clean it up for you!
Travel Hack – Use a Laundry Service
There is no better feeling than wearing your favourite outfits on a holiday, but it can be a buzzkill when you go back to your hotel only to find out you have tons of laundry that need to be done. The launderettes in Kuwait can be expensive and this can be stressful.
But it doesn’t need to be that way. Laundryheap is your friend. Just book your laundry service with us (we do have a service in Kuwait) and we’ll subtract one less chore from your duties!
All you need to do is book online or through the app and your dirty laundry will be collected and returned to you 24 hours later! It’s budget-friendly, efficient and convenient!
Keep a Record of the Essentials
The organisation is the key to everything and to stay on budget, keep a record of the essentials; the expenses, the hotel price, the food, drinks, the souvenirs and etc. We all get excited when travelling and it’s easy to go on a shopping spree (we don’t blame you!) but a record would benefit your budget significantly.
We even recommend recording your luggage weights. Luggage fees are common but as a travel hack and to keep you on budget, pack light and pack right and you will not be overcharged at the airport!
Make sure you neatly separate the clean clothes from the dirty clothes!
Visiting Kuwait on a budget is important, but enjoying your trip is more important. Follow our travel hacks but also have fun, take plenty of pictures and enjoy the food!
