Take a look at the places you want to go and discover when the cheapest time to travel is. If you do not mind missing the hottest weather or traveling during the rainy season, then this could be an option for you.
When it comes to flying, booking way in advance is usually the best option, and search the internet for the best deals and discounts and coupons, etc. Ensure that your seat is economy too. When you reach your destination country, you may be able to get some exclusive deals on trains if you research. Perhaps there may be some scope to get group discounts. And walk as much as you can.
