Careful planning can help you enjoy a great holiday, whatever the budget.
Does it feel like too long since your last holiday? Maybe with responsibilities like paying off your credit card, saving for your first home, or paying back your university fees, your next holiday still seems a long way off…
Well, don’t despair. There are plenty of ways to take a break without breaking the budget.
Before booking an overseas holiday work out what your Aussie dollar is worth in other currencies. Why? The recent fall in the value of our dollar means holidaying overseas may be more expensive than you first realise. It may be worth looking at local holiday options too.
Compare prices using online aggregators like Skyscanner, Webjet and Wotif and sign up for e-newsletters from travel providers to find out about specials. Check out Channel Nine’s hottest Getaway travel deals, which feature different holiday deals on a weekly basis.
Take advantage of earlybird deals and avoid school or public holidays.
More people can mean savings on tours, car hire and hotel rooms when you join forces.
Combine airfares with accommodation, day tours and even meals to save money ahead of time and avoid nasty surprises especially if the exchange rate changes.
Become savvy at saving by looking at how successful savers go about it. Why not use some handy tools to help you along, like AMP’s savings calculator, MoneySmart’s TrackMySPEND app or check out MoneyBrilliant, all of which can help you organise your personal finances.
And don’t forget wherever you’re going next – planning makes perfect!
