6) The Gift of Travel
A great way to save money on travel even before you take your vacation is to get your friends and family involved in helping you save. If your birthday or Christmas is coming up in the near future, ask everyone to give you cash towards your vacation or travelers checks you can spend when you get to your destination. Some couples, instead of registering for a gift list full of household items, ask friends and family to give them travelers checks so they could afford to go on the honeymoon of their dreams.
If you’re travelling with your family, the same concept applies to your kids. Instead of having the grandparents buy them yet another load of toys to add to the pile, ask for vacation spending money so your kids can buy a souvenirs or ice cream whenever they want. It might sound kind of cheeky but if people are going to be buying you a gift anyway it might as well be something you can use.
