Traveling can be a wonderful experience but like everything in life there are pros and cons and when you are traveling on a budget you are more than guaranteed to experience the cons of traveling. Here are the 5 things that you probably will have to deal with or have dealt with if you are a traveler.
1.Waiting In Line
this is one of the most frustrating things I have to deal with when I am traveling, there is so much waiting around, from checking in your suitcase to the security checks to the passport control. it usually takes around 2 to 3 hours to get everything sorted so it is always crucial that you arrive at least 3 hours before your flight departs. or be prepared to run for your life so you do not miss your flight.
2) Long Transit Hours
When you fly internationally especially if it is a long flight sometimes you have to stop for a few hours in another country or city. If you have to wait for less than 3 hours its great because you can stretch, have a nice meal at one of the airport restaurants, freshen up and so on. but, there are times where you have to wait for 8 hours or more before you can get into your flight and if you are on a budget you definitely do not have the money to spend on a hotel so you end up sleeping in the airport, either on the floor in a corner or in a tiny chair with a bunch of other strangers you don’t know.
3.Delayed Or Cancelled Flights
For some reason, airlines like to tell you your flight is canceled or delayed at the very last second which can result in you having a mental breakdown. Especially if you need to arrive at your destination at a specific time. Now. some airlines will reimburse your tickets and give you meal vouchers or free hotel stays for your inconvenience but if you are flying with a budget airline do not expect any of that and just accept the fact that you lost hundreds of dollars for your flights and will have to spend more money out of your pocket to get a new ticket. don’t even bother arguing with the airline your money is lost and they do not care.
These are my cons of traveling. I love being a traveler it can sometimes be tiring and time-consuming but at the end of the day, I always have a new story to tell about my experiences.
