You've probably heard that college is the best time to travel.

Traveling is a great opportunity to get to know yourself and the world better, as well as how you fit into the big picture.

It gives you so much perspective, and sounds amazing in general!

The only problem is no one tells you how to travel.2

If you're an unseasoned college jet setter, take these tips into consideration!

1. Don't Go Alone

Although some day traveling alone will be a worth while experience, you shouldn't go abroad for the first time alone.

Go with friends, siblings, or a study abroad program.

While you would probably make friends here and there while you're traveling, it's much safer, especially for a woman, to travel with a group.

2. Milk Your Studenthood

In between adolescence and adulthood lives something called wonderful studenthood.

One of the best parts of this age range is all of the discounts you get because people are sympathetic to the fact that you're a starving college student!

You can get cheaper tickets on the Eurail for being a student, as well as shop for more affordable plane tickets on studentuniverse.com.

3. Reach out

Before you hop on a plane, reach out to international students from your university.

There are bound to be a few!

They might grab coffee with you and show you around their town, or even let you stay with them!2

You never know until you ask.

4. Forget the Ritz...

You can travel in style when you're old and boring, but now is the time to stay in youth hostels and Airbnb's.

Not only will you save TONS of money as opposed to staying in a hotel, you'll also meet other traveling students from around the world with interesting stories and lives.

You may even make some lifelong friends!
