how to save for travel

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that planning ahead is important.

Are you doing everything you can to make traveling part of your wellness lifestyle? The same manner in which we master our skills for our profession or businesses, we should prioritize traveling. Global and traveling within the U.S. can be a pretty penny, but planning and setting goals for your upcoming travel can make any travel dream come true. Don’t wait to live your dream. We may not have tomorrow. Change your mindset.  Come from a place of gratitude and reward yourself for all your accomplishments and all the struggles you have overcome. Have a plan. It’s as simple as buying Starbucks once a week instead of every day. I know that’s tough guys, but the savings of approximately $50 weekly will add up to pay for a nice little trip or two, that will rejuvenate you.

Before you jump on the next plane, you must check all travel advisories for your country of departure and destination. Check out Booking.comThey offer competitive hotel rates and is a great website if you are looking for a shared space or a vacation home for rent.

Travel insurance is a must-have. While traveling is fun, you want to be safe while you travel.  Fortunately, I have had one when I needed medical care and a delay in one of my return trips due to a storm.

I can’t tell you how many times I have been in two minds about the extra $25 to $90 travel insurance premium (price will depend on travel destination). It is worth spending the added amount for unforeseen expenses while you travel. I would be bummed if I end up with added costs that may be on the higher end compared to the cost of my vacation, in the unfortunate event, I need medical care, baggage’s got lost or delayed, and flight delays. Over the years, I have purchased travel insurance from Allianz Global Assistance, Tripmate and CSA Travel Protection .
