Tips for Planning Your Vacation Budget

Vacationing with your family is a great way to make memories and spend quality time together. However, budgeting your money should be a key factor in deciding where and how to spend your upcoming time off. Financially straining your bank account or adding purchases to credit cards may quickly provide funds for a well-deserved break, but this short-sighted thinking will later lead to higher anxiety as the bills start rolling in.

Before topping off the gas tank or booking a hotel, take time to properly determine what you can realistically afford by creating a vacation budget. Since things usually end up costing more than anticipated, be sure to leave room for a little flexibility. After adding up the costs, if your dream vacation price tag is outside of your feasible budget, don’t be discouraged. Here are some great money-saving suggestions to bring your plans back in line with your pocketbook:

· Vacation near your own home

· Visit family to cut down on hotel expenses

· Travel with another family and share a condo or cabin

· Take fun day trips

· Travel during off-peak vacation times
