Many opt not to travel due to money. But there are ways to travel to Panama boutique hotels without breaking the bank. If you have been thinking about the perfect getaway, traveling during the off season is a great time. By making plans and thinking ahead, you can have the perfect vacation that fits within your budget. From planning and budget setting, to transportation tips and earning during your travels, use these tips to plan your perfect fall or winter vacation.
Planning and Setting a Budget
The first priority you should have when preparing for a trip is to plan and set a budget. Ideally, look to see what your budget would look like first. Next, plan out how you can save over a month or two before your travels so you have most of the funds upfront to pay for them. To help you get to your goal faster, find things you can cut, such as dinners out, daily stops for coffee, or subscription services that you can cancel. Next, take your newly created budget to decide what you would like to do on your trip. While you can plan for spontaneity, think about what things you would like to do on your trip and include them in your budget.
Once you know when you would like to travel, begin to look into how you are going to get there. For your flight, usually flight prices are less expensive in the middle of the week. If you fly with a regular airline and have accumulated miles, you can stay with your same airline to continue adding to your points. If you do not have a specific airline you fly with, look at flights from all. You can look them up individually, or use a third-party service that will look for the least expensive flights for you. Be open to different times of day as you might be able to get an inexpensive flight early in the morning or late at night. You can also save on baggage fees by limiting your items to a carry-on, or only if traveling with a group, share checked luggage for items such as shoes.
Earn During Your Travels
When traveling, there are often times you can take advantage of earning money on your trip. Even though it was noted to have much of your money saved for your travels, put the expenses of your trip on a credit card that allows you to earn points. Then, pay the card off after your travels so you do not accumulate debt or interests, but can take advantage of the points. Make sure you inform your credit card company that you will be traveling so they do not freeze your account due to unusual activity. If your card does not have points or cash back opportunities, review NerdWallet’s best travel credit cards of 2017
