If one of your resolutions in the new year is to travel more you aren’t alone, but saving money while you’re at it is always nice as well. Here are some ways to tighten up when it comes to spending money on those trips.
Use the Digit App
The Digit App functions to help you save money for trips in the first place. The app finances your spending habits and overall finances and then pulls money here and there from your bank account and places it in an F.D.I.C.-insured savings account. Of course, the intention behind that being that you won’t even notice the money going out but at some point you will suddenly have a vacation fund ready to go.
Go to Britain
The United Kingdom currently has a weak currency, which means that it’s abnormally cheap to visit. The exchange rate went from $1.60 to $1.17 in a matter of years. It’s still an expensive place to visit, but this might be the cheapest time to go.
Being flexible isn’t always an option when it comes to travel, but the more flexible you are about locations and travel times the better chance you have of landing a crazy deal. These days there are a ton of discount airlines that offer steals that are available only for certain periods of time.
