Beaches, mountains, treks, road trips, stay-cations, or whatever else comes to your mind when you think about a vacation. They all have one thing in common. Planning! Anyone who has ever gone on a vacation will know that planning a holiday is no picnic. It takes a lot of time effort and of course MONEY so you can have a comfortable holiday.
Your friends become objects of envy when you see them posting pictures on some exotic beach or raging it in some city or even attending a rock concert in Miami. Well, what if we told you, you can do that too! All you need to do is plan your finances and your money can take you to anywhere you want.
Let Moneyjar help you!
You know the drill? Pick a place, fight for it, stomp your feet and cry like a baby till you everyone agrees to the destination of your choice. If you are planning a day trip, Use Viator to get great tips on day trips and excursions.
The next thing you need to do is decide how you wish to travel. If you’re planning to take a flight, use a website like Kayak to compare flight prices for different airlines. Then see which one is the cheapest and book your tickets through Make My Trip/Cleartrip if they have any cashback offers(they usually do!). For local travelling, it’s best that you use your own transport unless you wish to travel by trains, in which case use IRCTC to book your tickets online. But you already knew that!
Use TripAdvisor to check on hotel prices across multiple websites, I’m sure we have all heard of Trivago, which is a pretty reliable website to compare hotel prices and bookings. Also, Airbnb is fast becoming a popular choice among travellers and they have a surprisingly comfortable booking procedure.
All the above things look and sound great but you know what they say – without dollar bills there ain’t no thrills! What I mean to say is that day trips, hotel and flight bookings cost money 🙂 One really interesting way to prepare your pocket for a vacation is by investing your money. Just plan a trip at the beginning of the year and start investing to save for it! It’s that simple.
