Ways to Save More from Your Christmas Getaway

For many families and couples, Christmas is the perfect time to go on a trip and enjoy the holidays in a beautiful destination. Do you plan to go on a trip too? If yes, consider the following tips, on how you can save more this year:


Make early reservations.

You can find online reservation companies that offer tour packages at different holiday destination for less. However, you will need to make reservations early in the year and pay in advance to get the discount. If you can plan your vacation ahead of time, booking your flight and accommodation early can slash off hundreds of dollars from your travel costs.

Use your travel reward credit card.

If you usually go on trips during the holidays, you may consider applying for a travel reward credit card to get more from your spending. If you prefer fly with a particular airline or carrier, look for a reward credit card that is sponsored by your favorite airline to get more points for your expenses.

However, take note that travel reward credit cards usually carry higher interest rates than other reward credit cards so it’s very important to pay off your monthly balance in full and on time.

Do not exceed the baggage limit.

Find out in advance how much luggage you can carry to avoid paying the penalties. If you are going to visit your relatives overseas and you plan to bring Christmas gifts, you can have them shipped instead.

Rent a villa or a transient house.

You can truly save a lot from your travel costs if you will stay in a transient home rather than accommodate in a hotel. Furthermore, you can enjoy the same comforts that a home provides, including a kitchen so you can cook your meals and won’t need to eat out at restaurants all the time.

Consider your travelling companions.

Who will be coming with you on your vacation? If you are couple and it will only be the two of you on the trip, you may collaborate with friends to enjoy group discounts. However, if you have a big family and everyone is included in the trip, don’t forget to request for a group discount as you make reservations for your flight and accommodation.

Open a Christmas savings account.

Open up a separate savings account for your Christmas vacation. Set aside a specific portion of your salary that will go to your Christmas vacation savings account. This way, you can start saving money early in the year and you won’t need to spend your entire Christmas bonus on your trip.

Don’t max out your limit.

If you will be using your reward credit card to pay for your airline tickets, hotel accommodation, car rental fees, and other travel-related expenses, see to it that you will not be maxing out your credit limit. If you own more than one credit card, consider spreading the costs to your accounts and be sure to leave at least 50% of your credit limit free from charges.
