Title : 4 Ways to Budget for a Big Trip

We occasionally hear stories from our clients about how they have budgeted through the year for their luxury holiday. 

Some of these ideas were so interesting that we couldn’t help sharing them with you, even if in some cases they may not be applicable in your particular home budgeting environment!

  1. Giving something up. It’s amazing how many people can actually save up enough for both their holiday and spending money simply by doing something like quitting smoking or drinking. They then put the money they would normally spend on those things into a holiday kitty. So, they get healthy and richer at the same time!
  2. Saving as you go. Trying to find a single payment for your holidays can be a little stressful. So, it’s interesting to note that some people simply save a little each week and when they do, it’s even more surprising at how quickly that can mount up.
  3. Selling things off. Many of us have attics or garages that are full of stuff we never use and we might think of as ‘old junk’. Surprisingly, other people might see it differently and be prepared to pay good money for it.  Some people turn their attic and garage out every year and raise a chunk of cash towards the annual holiday by doing so. 
  4. Dieting. Yep, some people will give up a particularly unhealthy foodstuff as part of a diet and put the money they would have spent into their holiday fund. This is a bit like the cigarette and alcohol route above and it might also mean you’ll fit into those holiday clothes a bit more easily too!

Just a few fun ideas but you might be surprised at how affective they could be in helping you secure that great holiday somewhere like our Port Douglas luxury accommodation!
