You Can Afford That Dream Vacation. Here's How.


We all dream of the day that we can take the vacation of a lifetime. Whether it's to a beautiful white sand beach in Spain or a breathtaking desert in Dubai, the feeling you get just dreaming about it makes it worthwhile. The issue more times than not is how to pay for it. For those of you yearning to take your dream vacation; with a little planning and a few tips, you can be packing your bags and boarding that plane or ship sooner than you think.

Credit Card Rewards

Travel credit cards can be a great way to travel to your dream destination. Many of the cards offer brand new applicants large signup bonuses. These bonuses can be worth thousands of miles, based on how much you spend within the first few months of receiving your card. You can also use hotel-branded credit cards to gain points you can redeem for hotel stays. This type of card is especially useful if you have a hotel chain that you are loyal to. Just by using these rewards you can practically pay for your trip.

Discounts, Discounts, Discounts

Are you a military veteran, police officer or senior citizen? These groups, as well as a few others, can get various discounts for hotels and travel. There are numerous sites that cater to these groups, specifically for discounts. You can also call the hotel you are looking to stay at and see if they offer any discounts. According to MoneyTalks, American, Delta, British Airways, Southwest and United Airlines all offer senior citizen discounts. If you're in this category, you can save around $200 for a flight. Also, if you have an AAA membership, you can get tons of discounts on airlines, cruises, and hotels.

House Sitting

How would you like to enjoy a vacation in an amazing home on the other side of the globe? Well, if this is something you'd consider, house sitting may be just the right move for you. Sites like Normador, Trusted House Sitters and Mind My House offers you an opportunity to match with homeowners in the location of your dreams. You take care of the house and sometimes pets and get a great vacation out of it. What more could you ask for?
