The open road is calling and your dream vacation awaits! But first, you need to work out the financial details. How are you going to pay for your getaway?
Ideally, a plump vacation fund is the way to go. Unfortunately, though, many of us don’t think about how we’re going to pay for vacation until it’s a few weeks away. These vacation saving tips will help you plan a perfect getaway without busting your budget.
Timing is everything. There is an ideal window for buying everything, and booking airline flights is no exception. Flight prices generally fluctuate until departure day, but experts say the sweet spot is 54 days before your travel date.
Never pay full price. Check sites like coupondivas.com, entertainment.com and Groupon.com for deep discounts at local eateries and entertainment centers.
Freebie fun. Challenge yourself to enjoy one day of your vacation without spending any money. Search local sites and blogs for write-ups about free things to do. You might find a charming farm, a fun splash pad for the kids or a scenic hiking trail.
Don’t forget, your Credit Union West Platinum Mastercard comes loaded with exclusive travel benefits. Use your card to book your trip and during your stay, and get travel benefits that can save you money. Learn more.
