CHEAP VACATION LAYAWAY PLANS
By having ample planning, smart budgeting and a savvy travel agent on your side, you’ll be able to live your life to the fullest, all while you save money, keep the stress down and have fun doing what you want to do and being where you want to be.
Here’s how it’s done.
We know that between work, school and everybody’s activities it can definitely be difficult to plan a vacation far in advance, but we promise it’s worth it. Generally, hotels and airlines post their rates and their availability a whopping 300 days in advance – that’s roughly nine months. Are you thinking about cruise lines and theme parks? They typically post their rates even further ahead. What this means is that if you can take advantage of this lead time, you can make it play out in your favor by the time you’re ready to leave. Remember, you’ll need a good, lengthy time span to create the most affordable monthly payments.
Here’s a general cheat list for the best times of year to plan for an advanced vacation:
For a Thanksgiving/Christmas Vacation: Begin planning around Valentine’s Day.
For a Spring Break Vacation: Begin planning the summer before it.
For a Summer Vacation: Begin planning around the start of the school year.
MAKE A DEPOSIT
Deposits are always a smart tool. Most hotels, cruise lines and even Disney require only a small deposit. This fee can be anywhere per person to a percentage of the total cost of the trip. In fact, you can confirm your upcoming Disney vacation by putting a deposit down for your family’s hotel, park tickets and even a meal plan for as little.
SET UP A MONTHLY PAYMENT SCHEDULE
In general, most destinations require full payment to be made 60-45 days prior to arriving. After making your initial deposit, figure out your remaining balance, divide it by the number of months left before your due date, and pay by monthly installments. You can set up and authorize your payments to be taken out automatically from your credit card.
