How to plan an affordable vacation

Not many people have the money and time to visit exclusive resorts, kick back and relax. Most of us have to plan our vacations months ahead and find different ways to save money. It doesn’t matter where you are going, whether it’s London or your neighboring country, you don’t want to spend all your money and live on bread and water for the rest of the years. Vacation is the time of the year where you get to relax with your family and friends. I have some tips for you which will help you out achieve this.

Start early

Last minute vacation is always a wrong decision because it will cost you a lot of time and money. If you are already planning to take a couple of weeks off, then make sure to start planning early. In this way, you will know where to cut your budget, and many places offer discounts if you book a few months prior. Calculate all your costs on time, think about transportation and the things you will do when you reach your destination. For example, you may choose a place which has great rates on hotels and restaurants, but it will cost you a fortune to get there.

 

Set a daily allowance limit

Once you resolve a hotel and transportation issue, try to set a regular budget. While on vacation, you will be tempted to buy so many different things and everything may seem appealing, but this can lead you to a bad financial situation. When you arrive, set up your daily allowance, establish the amount of money in separate envelopes for each day and put them in a hotel safe and you can save your credit card for emergency situations.

Don’t go crazy with food

You will run into many different types of foods and restaurants, but it’s important to eat like a local. You don’t have to spend $50 on a meal when you can go to a local diner and try the exact the same thing for $10. Another great option is a street food, but be careful before trying this, choose stands where there is a high circulation of people.
