>> Dec 8, 2017



Travel is essential for giving your children a well-rounded upbringing. However, when money is tight, it’s hard to carve out the funds needed to afford trips. Fortunately, there are several ways you can cut travel costs and scrape together the money needed for a family vacation. Here are a few of them.

Create a Budget

When you first calculate how much a trip to your preferred destination will cost you, it may seem impossible to prepare your finances for travel. However, you can make the expenses much more manageable by setting up a sinking fund. This is basically a specific amount of money that you set aside in a savings account each month or each time you get paid. When you spread the expenses across several months, they become much more manageable.

Cut Expenses from Your Life

Do you really need to spend so much on your phone? Can you go with a simpler phone and plan and save money? If so, do it! Also, some families might be able to get rid of a car to cut costs. Look at where your money is going, and see where you can make changes to save money.

Sell Items You Don’t Need

One of the best ways to raise the money needed to go on a trip is to sell stuff that is just sitting around your house that you don’t need anymore. For example, you can usually collect significant cash from selling sports equipment you no longer use, clothing, or kitchen appliances. Turn to the internet to sell your items if you want to attract greater interest. Gumtree is an excellent website for posting for sale ads.

Sign Up for Newsletters

Many travel companies and airlines send out email newsletters. This is a terrific source for special deals and last-minute sales. For example, you can often get more than 50% off on round-trip airfare to exotic destinations around the world.

Get Credit Cards

You can get free flights, free rooms, and free money when you use a travel credit card. You can redeem rewards points and miles for free travel on your vacation after you accrue enough of them on everyday purchases. When traveling on a budget, travel credit cards are going to be your best tool. And, when you get a new card, you earn huge sign-up bonuses. These cards essentially generate free money when used properly.

With these tips, you will be well on your way to giving your family the vacation of a lifetime. Happy travels.
