Wise Indonesia Country Manager, Elian Ciptono, explained that the trend of backpacking holidays is increasingly popular because it offers the opportunity to travel at an affordable cost. According to him, people who are planning a holiday need to have a complete plan to maintain their holiday trip.

“So that it remains smooth, enjoyable and within budget. “Especially when going abroad, it is important to pay attention to additional costs from overseas transaction fees and mark-up fees hidden in the exchange rate,” explained Elian in an official statement received by, Wednesday (12/6/2024).

According to him, these costs can come from unexpected things such as when withdrawing cash from a local ATM or when paying with a credit card.

For people planning a vacation, they must be sure to pay attention to these hidden costs. So that more of the budget can be used for holiday experiences.

Elian shares some tips for enjoying a fun and comfortable backpacker holiday without breaking the bank. The first tip is to choose a destination that is backpacker-friendly.

For beginner backpackers, it is important to choose a destination that has easily accessible public transportation, cheap food, friendly weather, and is safe for solo travelling.

In Indonesia, cities such as Banyuwangi, Yogyakarta, Flores and Lombok offer stunning natural views. If you want to backpack abroad, you can look at Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

This destination offers a rich culture and friendly facilities for backpackers on a limited budget.

Second, choose when to travel during the low season.By avoiding traveling during the holiday season, you can save more on flights and hotel costs.

Elian said that for those who have holiday plans, they can do research and plan their trip during the low season to get more discounts and avoid crowds.

Backpackers often only focus on packing compactly. But it’s also important to bring basic necessities such as dry food, a small repair kit, medicine and towels.

“Bring clothes that fit together easily in a compression bag, and consider washing clothes during the trip. Lighter luggage will provide more flexibility when traveling. “Having this equipment can also help avoid last-minute purchases that may be more expensive,” he said.

Elian also urges travelers to bring cash and other payment options. Having multiple payment options while traveling is very important to avoid situations where you can’t pay for what you need.

Backpackers should also bring a credit or debit card and cash. When abroad, there are unexpected costs when making transactions.

When using a debit or credit card, always choose to pay in local currency. For cash withdrawals, avoid ATMs near hotels, airports and popular tourist attractions due to higher fees and use a debit card rather than a credit card.

If you have friends or relatives at your holiday destination, consider sending money to their account first.

Apart from that, continued Elian, you can use a cheap, fast and transparent remittance platform like Wise. They can help withdraw cash from local ATMs, avoiding foreign currency transaction fees.

One must also determine the budget and estimated expenses before the trip.

To keep expenses within budget, allocate the budget into several smaller expense categories. This gives you a clear picture of what you are willing and able to pay for the trip.
