If one is looking for the cheapest way, public transportation is cheaper if there is only one or two people traveling. I found that the most memorable trips was when I had contact with others, either friends of friends or occasionally nice locals. This might be hard if one is in a country where one doesn't usually talk with strangers or smile at strangers.

One nice local that I remember was when (not in Germany) I could not find the correct bus stop and others did not help. There was one teenage boy who not only helped but showed me exactly where the bus stop was instead of pointing. It was 1.5 blocks away and he was in a leg cast!
