Even though exploring the world is now more accessible than ever before, there are still many misconceptions about travel that might be preventing you from making your dream trip a reality, or that could cost you a lot of time and money. Here are some common travel myths you shouldn’t believe.

Trains Are Cheaper

Airline tickets are now cheaper than ever before thanks to low-cost companies, and finding last-minute flight deals can save us a lot of money on travel. This means that trains are no longer the cheapest mode of transportation, even though they are one of the most eco-friendly ways to travel.

English is Spoken Everywhere

Even though it’s the most commonly spoken language in the world, don’t expect that everyone you meet on your trip will speak English. That’s why learning at least a few common phrases in the local language can save you a lot of time, and maybe even money, while traveling.

Street Food Can Make You Sick

There’s a common myth that eating street food is not very safe, but in most cases, street food is just as safe as eating in a restaurant. Eating street food is a great way to try authentic local food and it’s also very cheap.
