How to Travel Bora Bora on a Budget – Tips to keep Bora Bora trip costs low

Bora Bora is the stuff of glossy magazines, Kardashian episodes, fancy honeymoons, and of course overwater bungalows.

This is a no-BS breakdown of how to travel Bora Bora on a budget while still having the iconic experience of staying in a fancy resort like we did. It's possible!

Flights and getting to Bora Bora

This will be one of your biggest expenses alongside the accommodations, so let's start with how you're actually going to get to French Polynesia.

Paying cash for your flight isn't going to be the cheapest but there are ways to keep the prices down. There's no guarantees for getting the “best deal” but there are a few steps you can follow.

Subscribe to flight deals such as Dollar Flight Club

This doesn't work so well if you have specific dates in mind, but if you're just waiting for killer fare to jump on, you just need to be constantly on the lookout.

Get price alerts from Skyscanner

If you have specific dates in mind, you can set up one or many price alerts to start tracking what the trend is on flights.

Break up your flights into segments

You don't have to be locked into the round trip from your home airport to PPT, especially since some low-cost carriers don't appear on aggregators like Skyscanner or Kayak.
