Determine the price of the ticket

Now you will be able to determine how much your ticket is going to cost thus giving you a goal to work towards.
Now that you know how much your bus tickets are going to cost you can set up a savings plan for yourself. Say your ticket will cost you R450, you can aim to save R70 a week for 7 to 8 weeks or R10 a day for 45 days.
Make a change to save some change
Do you buy lunch every day? Opt to pack your lunch and save the money you would’ve spent instead. When doing grocery shopping, see where you can save some money with deals and see which foods can be replaced by more affordable options. Cut back on your entertainment budge such as going to restaurants, the movies, buying data etc. and enjoy some quality fun time with the family at home. You would be surprised where you can save money if you tried.
Save with a friend
Going on holiday with friends or family members? Why save all of the money on your own then? Have everyone save money together and when the time comes to book your tickets, it won’t be that expensive.
