Note: in many cases there are shorter walks available to either nearby public transport that may be cheaper than the more expensive trains to the airport, or to nearby attractions. If you edit this wiki, please post those as well.

Though one CAN walk from ULN to somewhere, it's a significantly further distance to the downtown area. The new airport's location will eliminate the latter possibility.

FAO (Faro, Portugal)

Walked to/from my hotel in Montenegro which took (me) about 30 mins each way. Some of you would probably have done it much quicker. Although along roads with footpaths it would be hard work with wheeled luggage as surfaces uneven and paths covered with parked cars. Another 45 mins or so to centre of Faro.

Didnít technically save any money as I believe the hotel had a shuttle bus.

Which is why I (usually) travel with convertible carryon that has hidden straps turning it into a back pack.

Allows me to use the wheels most of the time, and carry on backpack when needed - usually not too long as I tend to pack heavier than when in true backpacker mode, which I also do
