Travel During Low Season
Even the most expensive cities in the world have low tourist seasons. When they are overflowing with tourists, the top scam artists come out to play. However, during off seasons, you’re more likely to come across kinder, non-scam artist locals, hotels charge less, even restaurants charge less. Search the most popular times to travel to your destination city and avoid going during that peak time. You’ll enjoy the city even more without hoards of tourists in the way and you’ll save a pretty penny while you’re at it.
