Consider backpacking.  You can use hostels instead of hotels (you basically rent a bed at a hostel and stay overnight). It’s inexpensive, it’s good for you, and you can get a lot more sights in for a lot less money.

Consider traveling with purpose in mind. Do you have a heart for helping other people or volunteering? You may want to consider traveling with volunteer or missions groups in order to help people in need. These trips are usually more inexpensive, have almost everything included, and there’s usually time to take in the sights while you’re doing a great service for the people in the area you’re in.

Cruises, although they seem expensive, really aren’t when you consider the out-of-pocket cost covers everything you need for however many days you’re there.
