Discover Tahiti in a price you can afford.

Posted by on 01 Nov 2019 , in Islands

We always know that Tahiti and her islands is one of the most expensive travel destinations in the world but for sure, it’s going to be a dream come true for those who saved and waited! If you are on a budget and don’t want to spend hundreds of bucks for a dinner or spa, here are a few tips to make your vacation in Tahiti stress-free from expenses.

  1. Bring your own food
  2. Visit the other islands
  3. Go during low season
  4. Book a package deal
  5. Choose a package with breakfast daily

Bring your own food

Food in French Polynesia is absolutely expensive so why not try to bring your own snack? A couple of chocolates, granola bars, bread, and other snacks.

Visit other islands

Bora Bora’s overwater bungalows are great but c’mon, the entire French Polynesia is so vast and beautiful. Explore other islands’ white sand beaches and cheaper overwater bungalows.

Go during low season

Willing to take a risk? Bora Bora’s rainy season are from December to March and rates are relatively lower. April and November are also less expensive.

Book a package deal

Look for bookings through a travel agency and you might save a lot of cash. Make sure that they specialize in French Polynesia. They usually book trips in bulk and get bigger discounts for you. For instance, Air Tahiti Nui, Tahiti’s official carrier, partners with travel agencies to offer good deals.

Choose a package with breakfast daily

This saves money, of course, since breakfast buffets in hotels and restaurants are really, really, really pricey. To save more, eat lunch late and make it your biggest meal of the day and then make dinner more of light snacks and beer.
