India on a budget

When setting foot in one of the world's most famous backpacking destinations, with your thoughts full of adventure, Northern India and camping in the national parks, it's hard to give more than a brief thought to your budget, It might seem easy to travel India on a budget, say, of £20 a day. But thousands of backpackers realize each year that, whilst it is possible to experience all your dreams of traveling in India for this much money, it does take a bit of organization. Although it may sound a bit dull, the best to way to stick to a budget is to be aware of it all the way through your trip. You're bound to meet backpackers around India that have no idea how much is left in their pocket; travelers who plan to go away for 12 months but are forced to return in less than six... firstly, it's a good idea to get your money organized into a bank account with online facilities before you go. This way, you can keep an eye on spending along the way. Also, pay for comprehensive travel insurance in advance so you don't have to fork out for any unforeseen expenses that will eat into that budget. Similarly, don't be tempted to buy any clothes specifically for traveling before you go; clothes and shoes are, as a rule, much cheaper in India than back home.
