How To Save Money For Your Dream Vacation

  1. 1. HOW TO SAVE MONEY DREAM VACATION FOR YOUR
  2. 2. Plan for your trip ahead of time, and take the financial stress out of your vacation.
  3. 3. Get an idea of your travel expenses Start looking at costs like airfare and accommodations to determine your travel expenses so you can set a savings goal. Track down savings opportunities. For instance, if you can fly on a Wednesday, the fares are usually less expensive. By planning ahead, you can save to make the cost of next year’s holiday less of a burden.
  4. 4. Create a vacation savings account It’s easier to save if you put your money in a place where you won’t be tempted to use it. Create a new savings account just for your vacation. For example, a Regions Bank LifeGreen Savings account com- pounds interest daily.
  5. 5. Use auto transfers Look over the last few months’ expenses, and see how much you can shave off your budget. Even just $50 per month can make a big difference. The more you can stock away in savings, the less you spend each month and the faster the savings add up.
  6. 6. Look at rewards Responsibly take advantage of credit card rewards. You may be able to redeem points for cash and deposit it in your vacation savings account. Use points to save money on flights, car rentals, hotels and other vacation-related expenses. However, be careful not to overuse your card. Adding more debt than you can afford is counterproductive to your savings goal.
  7. 7. Defer the holidays Consider reducing your Holiday spending in order to save. Create your own cards. Make gifts instead of buying them. Buy used if you can. Do gift exchanges for large families or groups. If you have kids, pitch the idea that the trip is your Holiday present to each other. If that doesn’t work, agree to just buy for the kids.
  8. 8. TRIM Luxuries Can you skip a nice dinner out? Or the tickets for that concert? If you can, that’s money you can save. Just transfer it from your checking account to your vacation savings account.
  9. 9. Earn extra cash Today, there are more options than a garage sale to earn extra money for your savings goal. Be inventive. E-bay and Craigslist are your friends. You can clean out your closets, basement and attic and turn those unused items into savings.
  10. 10. Use your tax refund If you’re not reaching your goals fast enough, consider adding your tax refund to your vacation savings account as well.
  11. 11. Start planning today for next years dream vacation. And get more out of your vacation than you would have thought possible.
