Key Summary: A vacation that doesn’t create any debt is the best kind to take. Start saving in advance by estimating travel expenses and other various vacation expenses like food, lodging, and activities. Saving in advance allows you to travel knowing that you have truly earned this trip!
Summer is coming and that means vacation time! Are you thinking of taking a trip abroad? Or maybe doing a bit of camping in a National Park? If you want to enjoy your vacation without relying on your credit cards, now is a good time to start thinking about the various expenses involved and how you’ll pay for them.
Once you know where you want to go, figure out how much you’ll need to spend. Sign up for travel alerts to your destination. Airlines, hotels, cruise lines, and travel companies often have flash sales. If you’re a student, veteran, or a senior, check for any discounts you might be eligible for. If your dates are flexible, find the least expensive travel times. Compare the costs of flights out of nearby airports. Read sites like trip savvy to help you get the best deals.
