If you’re like me, you’re already planning (and saving for) summer vacation. I have three (three!) trips planned- more than I usually do in the span of five years! I’m going to Las Vegas, Cedar Point, and then to Michigan to meet my boyfriend’s extended family. That’s going to be a lot of traveling, but I’ve been saving as much as possible. For tips on saving money for your family’s vacation, check out this post by Holly Johnson at the Get Rich Slowly blog. It has some great advice, especially if you’re going to be traveling with kids:
-Credit card rewards make it easy to travel cheaply, but only if you do it right. Make sure you are organized enough to pull it off!
-Plan ahead, book ahead.
-Think of everything to pack and bring it with you. Don’t get caught spending $30 for sunscreen at a souvenir shop.
-Avoid airfare at all costs, especially if you’re traveling as a group.
-Always bring something for the kids to do
