Holidays. You know what’s more expensive than vacationing in New York City? Going to New York City on New Year’s Eve. And if you’re budget conscious, you’re going to want to keep in mind the holidays when YOU travel. Depending on the destination, flights and hotels are going to be more expensive if it lands on a major holiday.
This guide is incredible! So detailed and informative. Although, we’ve never used a pre-paid travel card. When we started out most of them had bad reviews so we opted for a joint bank account -with the lowest fees we could find – which we’d transfer to as and when we needed. I’ve definitely seen more people suggest them these days. Maybe it’s something for us to consider!

There’s nothing worse than having to sit on the phone with your credit card company instead of enjoying your vacation.

Nice guide Craig! New York City is really a great place for food, especially if you are a pizza lover! Been there last week and tried the pizza napoletana at Ribalta Plaza and it’s amazing! We stayed at The Skyline Hotel and it’s the perfect location for me and my family as it is near the city center and shopping, sighseeing, bars and restaurants are all nearby! Yeah I agree specially on your Step 4 that booking ahead of time is a must specially for busy cities in New York. Thanks!
On a previous trip to Thailand, we had an issue accessing our money using our ATM card because our account in Australia was a checking account. For it to work in Thailand it had to be a savings account.
Regardless of your mode of travel, consider packing a first aid kit, snacks, and entertainment for the travel time. Car trips and air travel both involve long periods of potential boredom, so consider bringing along games or activities for the travelers, especially if you are traveling with children.
Few will be surprised that Google Flights ranks No. 1 on my list, but it’s not just because Google has so much data at its fingertips. The reason Google excels is that it can tell the difference between a cheap flight and a good one.
If you are flying, be aware that many airlines charge customers per bag, so packing light will save you money. In addition to limits to the number of bags, most airlines limit the weight of each bag and will charge exorbitant fees for overweight bags.
Weather. Summer is always going to be an incredibly busy time for common vacation destinations like cruises, beaches, and…well, anywhere where there are outdoor activities. Also the fact that school is out for the summer means families will be traveling a LOT during this time.

You can use any ATM in the world and Schwab reimburses all the ATM fees at the end of each month. It seems that if there was an award for most favorite (and the least evil) bank ever it would probably win.

At the same time, you are totally broke. You have spent a lot of money during the trip and it is difficult for you to recover at this point. Here are some tips so you won’t have a hard time in terms of finances once the trip is done. […]
A few months ago, I took a 3-week vacation to SE Asia for 3 weeks — all over Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand. Nobody on this site knew I was gone. Yet while I was abroad, I earned tens and tens of…
I am currently in the ‘sell your stuff’ phase. I am glad I started early because I have collected a lot of stuff over the years, most of which I haven’t used in a very long time. I am really enjoying the process of decluttering my home. It is a very freeing experience.

Discuss possible destinations with your fellow travelers. Instead of making this a chore, have it be a fun activity. Over the course of a few days, weeks or other long duration you wish (e.g. 1-3 months), spend some time talking about each place and why it would make a good destination.
Check your passport if it has enough pages for the countries you are going to. Some countries take a page. Check the validity as well. You are safe to have at least 6 months before your entry to any destination.
There’s really no right way to do this — you might want to book direct from an airline’s website so you’re guaranteed to pick seats (assuming basic economy rules don’t apply) or if you want to use accumulated flyer miles to pay. You might also want to book via aggregators like Orbitz and Expedia to earn points, or use points from your credit card to book. The general advice is booking direct with the airline generally garner you more leverage when flight cancellations or other irregularities happen so you don’t have to contact a third party to rebook, but depending on your credit card, you may also have better travel protection policies. Check with your local bank to determine your eligibilities before making the final decision on where to book.
