Show#18 Millionaire or Bust – Vacations

October 6th, 2006 · podcasts

Topic of the Week
This week we’ll talk about things to consider when going on vacation so that you can save some money or just have a better trip for the same money.

Money Saving Tips
Money Saving Tip of the Week
Bring some snacks or meals with you when you travel. Especially now that a lot of airlines won’t be serving you meals. Luckily the airline will still provide you with a drink on the flight, especially with the current restrictions that won’t allow you to bring your own drinks on the flight.

Talli’s Tightwad Tip of the Week
If you buy lots of bottled water on your trips normally, pack a few into your checked baggage if you have room. Even if you can only bring a couple, you won’t have to search for a reasonably priced place to buy one right away. You’ll save yourself a few bucks that you can spend on something more fun.

Tool of the Week
www.fodors.com

This travel site gives you a lot of information about destinations you might be considering, restaurants and hotels that are available there and prices. You’re better off looking elsewhere for deals, but they have lots of great information.

Financial Psychology
Picking a date to travel based on a good time for you and a location to travel to based on the place you most want to go to. You should probably only do one or the other. Otherwise, you might be traveling to a location at the most expensive time.

Talli and I have learned that if you plan appropriately with location and time you can often get two vacations for the price of one. So, you can either travel twice as much or spend half as much. Either way, you’re ahead. Either in trips or money.
