9) Enter a Travel Contest
Probably the very cheapest way to travel is to win a travel contest. You pay nothing to join, and your odds of winning are completely determined by how many people take part. So, your chances of getting a free trip somewhere might be pretty good. You’ll find that there are restrictions, so be sure you know the conditions of use before you sign anything. For example, you’ll probably be constrained in terms of when you can go, so you’ll have to be flexible in terms of when you can leave. Also, you’ll have to complete questionnaires asking you for information about your personal details, which the contest organizers will share with other vendors. So, it may be that your nuisance mail/telephone calls might go up. Of course, if you’re relaxing on the free holiday of your dreams, you might not care that much.
