And welcome back to my how to travel guide.
Welcome to the travel guide that talks about actually traveling.
Yes, getting to and from place to place .
So typically the longer that you have for travel,
the more cheaper your transportation methods can be.
Because you can just take longer to get there,
and you can pick the cheapest ways.
Planes are the most expensive form of transportation,
but generally they are the quickest.
Just really do your research, look out for deals,
you can and can’t escape this cost for you’re going, like long international destinations.
Make sure you check out budget airlines.
There are a variety of them,
and there, they are what they sound like, budget airlines,
there are no frills, no,
they’re not really luxurious, the really basic, nothing special to them.
And they also like to cancel, and get delayed on you,
and how really not the best customer service.
But their cheap airfare, they get you from A to B.
Hello, that is, though it’s supposed to be like a choo-choo.
I feel like North American don’t really know trains properly,
that’s my thought.
that’s why they generally have a class system,
so you can buy, like different classes for the different types of trains, or destinations that you are going to.
A word of caution though, when picking out kind of your budget levels for train tickets.
If you are traveling at any kind of less westernized country,
it’s probably not the best idea to go for the cheapest train tickets,
because those are, generally really, yeah they really, I wouldn’t have recommend it.
Also don’t dismiss overnight trains,
because it’s a great way to save on accommodation,
and if you’re pressed for time,
you just sleep through your train ride, it’s magical and amazing,
then suddenly you wake up when you’re in another place.
In Europe they also offer a lot of, like passes,
so you can do multiple countries,
and get, like really good discounts,
if you’re planning on doing, like a train trip, all around Europe.
Public transportation! Yeah~
Most major cities will have a metro line,
some sort of, like speedy, underground, or overground,
light, “railway”, sort of system.
These are the easiest,
and generally cheapest way to get to places in those cities.
And the beauty of this is that once you kind of know how to navigate one of these metro systems,
they’re the same everywhere around the world,
just slight differences in, like the language.
They’re also fantastic when you’re in a foreign country that doesn’t speak the language that you speak.
So you’re looking at all these weird words and letters and numbers,
you don’t know how to pronounce things that you can’t understand.
Well, if you know the name of the stop that you need to get off that,
it’s really simple, you just look through the stop on the line,
get on the proper line, and you’ll be there.
It’s worth it to look and get any kind of Metro pass,
or like day pass, or weekly pass, to use the subway system.
Learn and love the ways of the Metro.
Buses, well they’re not the best form of transportation,
也不是最精确 最豪华 最舒适的交通工具
or the most accurate, or the most luxurious, or comfortable,
but they are everywhere.
There are always buses, everywhere that you will go in the world,
Now, the biggest thing of a bus that I find is that,
I get really confused about them and where they go,
and feel like if I hop on a bus it’s gonna take me somewhere that I don’t know where,
and I will be lost.
In that case make sure that you research the bus beforehand,
know the route that it takes,
and kind of have an idea of where you need to go.
Don’t be afraid to ask the driver questions.
If you are confused and you need to figure out where this is, or that is,
if you’re going to a popular destination,
they probably know and can help you.
Also don’t be afraid to ask fellow passengers,
where you’re going if you’re lost, you’re trying to find someplace,
because if they’re from the area, they’ll probably know as well.
So backpacker buses are kind of like a…
they are, they’re generally upgraded buses.
Sometimes they can be coaches, sometimes they aren’t coaches,
but they are generally run by a company, they’re cleaner.
And they have kind of a set route that they go along,
因此它们中的大多数 不是所有 都可以改变路线
so most of them, not all of them, again they can vary,
will allow you to hop on at certain destinations,
travel along the bus and then you can hop off at another destination.
You need to spend time there, and then you can hop back on the bus,
kind of just like, plan your travels as you go.
And they allow for, like flexibility,
but they also provide you with a method of transportation around the country.
Generally backpacker buses are more so for longer journeys,
so when you’re going farther destinations around a country,
not typically for like smaller city transportation methods.
Coaches in package tours.
Coaches again are upgraded buses.
They are more luxurious, they generally have like more comfy seats.
And they’re run by a company,
There are public coaches that you can take to get to places,
typically these are, like to and from airports, or to and from other kind of transportation hubs.
But there are also the private coaches,
which come when you do package tours.
Yes, this is the beauty of doing a package tour,
is that you don’t have to worry about your transportation,
because they provide it for you.
They provide you a coach and you’ll transport on that coach,
and you don’t have to worry about getting from A to B,
it’s all taken care of for you.
Taxis and cabs.
Now if you must take a taxi,
and there are definitely times when you travel that you must take a taxi,
because it’s just unsafe, or there is no other way to get to a destination.
Here are some words of caution.
Make sure you know the cost ofgetting to the place that you want to go,
before you get in the cab.
So typically, if you ask the front desk of the accommodation that you’re staying at,
they will know the approximate taxi costs to get to
any of the locations that you’re trying to get to.
There are also “unofficial” taxis,
that you might run into while you are traveling.
There are just generally citizens of that city that have a car,
and will go to the popular taxi destinations,
offer up their car as a taxi service.
I have been in these before and it’s an awkward experience,
but you know they’re…they’re generally just trying to make money off you.
I would say avoid them if you can,
but if you do find yourself in them, make sure you have a negotiated price,
because generally they don’t have a meter to run for you.
So just be aware of those.
Now this is not an option that I typically use,
but it is a very popular option in certain destinations,
like North America, for example.
Also if you are traveling in groups, and it’s a great way to kind of have that freedom,
and you can travel all together in like a smaller vehicle,
you can go to places on your own time,
just, whoo, freedom with a vehicle.
All right, so now I hope you’ve got a better idea of
all the different methods of transportation that you can use while you’re on your travel,
and some tips for using them, yeah~
Awesome, well thank you so much for watching, and I will see you next time.
So in today’s episode, I mean we’re talking about accommodations,

slash, where we’re going to live and sleep, when we’re on the road.
