Christmas has passed, the new year is here and many of us are counting down the days until summer vacation. What will it be this year? White sandy beaches, hiking and camping or sailing the open seas? The options are endless...if you are financially prepared. Summer vacations are well deserved breaks but if you aren't careful they can leave your bank account and credit cards tattered and bruised!
When planning a vacation make sure to do your research. Many hotels and travel sites run specials including airfare, rental cars and hotels stays. Also, if within your budget, all-inclusive resorts are always a great idea. They allow you to pay up front with all amenities included leaving no room for surprise charges. If you don't have the expenses, look for hotels that have refrigerators and microwaves in the room. This allows you to plan your meals better, pack lunches and warm up leftovers.
If flying and fancy hotels are out of your budget, stay-cations can be just as enjoyable. Travel within driving distance of your home to save on airfare. Booking budget friendly hotels and packing a cooler of food will allow you to step away from the chaos of life, but not break the bank. Also, always research budget friendly activities. Many parks and museums are open to the public free of charge and provide hours of inexpensive entertainment.
Taking a break from you busy life to recharge with family and friends is very important. Making sure you have the proper funds to support you world travels is even more important. Having negative credit will make booking flights and reserving rooms impossible.
