Abstract: Abstract The purpose of the paper is to present individual budget travels as a new and increasingly popular way of spending free time. The conducted research has allowed to identify the reasons for choosing budget travelling, the preferred regions for this type of trips, as well as the factors that determine the destination and way of spending time during such journeys. Also the knowledge about the accommodation facilities used and the ways of meeting the nutritional needs during budget travels, as well as the most popular modes of transportation to the destination and in its surroundings, was obtained. Moreover the types of persons accompanying the respondents during the budget trips were identified. The research also allowed to find out barriers that hinder or obstruct more frequent budget travelling, as well as the difficult elements of organization and implementation of such trips. The research was conducted in 2016 with a method of diagnostic survey, using the questionnaire technique. The research sample consisted of 214 people living in Poland and travelling on a budget.
