Travelling is a truly a remarkable thing. Cameras may capture an image, but countries, places, arts, and cultures capture your heart and no photo can do what these places do for your soul. The unfortunate or rather, the downside to travelling is the expenses. The airport taxes, the flights, the accommodations and additional unaccounted for costs can prove to be rather overwhelming. Not to forget that you need to eat, drink and take care of personal hygiene. All these expenses ultimately become a weight and weigh heavy on our budgets which in turn steal our excitement.
To avoid the misery of going through all of these factors, there are some money solutions you could take into consideration during the course of the year to help you gain a big enough nest egg to not have to worry about what you will eat the following year after your long needed trip. Hopefully, these pointers will help you journey through all your vacations as most tips can be used on a daily basis.
Open a Dedicated Savings Account
Open a bank account that allows you to transfer money to a pockets savings option, so when you spend on your credit or debit card, it doesn’t touch your savings. You can also transfer all the leftover change from your bank account to your savings account without interrupting your spending.
Consider Automatic Transfers
If you don’t already know, your bank may have an ‘Automatic Transfer’ option. This option is like a ‘save your change’ feature as mentioned above, except you don’t need to do it manually. It is always a great idea to opt for both options as you get to save at a faster rate, even if it’s a minimal amount.
Grab That Savings Jar
Spare change anyone? If you find spare change lying around the house, put it into a hidden jar in the house. Let everyone know that you are keeping any treasures you find and once every three months, deposit the cash into your allocated savings account.
Get Some Extra Cash
Nobody has ever moaned about earning extra cash, they rather moan about the work they need to do in order to get the cash. Skip the hardships and aim to do something fun for cash instead. A perfect example is to play slots online to earn a little extra by depositing your winnings into your travel account.
Ultimately, there is no fast way to save cash as times are tough but given a realistic time window and a travel destination goal, anything is possible!
