2018 Travel Wish List + Budget Travel Tip

add photog



I have a habit of constantly seeking out travel inspiration. Like most millennials, I love traveling, but as a young professional, it's pretty difficult to find the money to travel like I want to without going into debt. But it IS possible. It just takes some discipline and research. I know, neither one of those things are very sexy, but you know what is sexy? Getting your money right! So if you're like me and want to travel without putting your financial freedom at risk, the best way to do that is to start a travel savings account! You can literally start by putting aside  $5 or $10 a week. And once you see how little you miss that $10, automate bi-weekly transfers from your paycheck into your savings account. $100 a month adds up real quick! I have an online savings account with Ally Bank because they don't charge any monthly or annual fees, and I don't have automatic access to spending that money since that account doesn't come with a card. This is super helpful for me because I literally don't have access to those funds for impulse buys.  And if you're curious about where I want to jet off to, here's a list of the places I'm currently saving up to travel to!

So let's say you put $20 into your travel account on every Friday from July 6th to December 28th.  That's $520 you just saved for your next jet-setter adventure. PLUS you get interest, Plus you'll feel encouraged to put even more towards your savings account after you see how fast your money is growing. And that's how you take amazing trips without hurting your bank account. Let me know in the comments below if you have any amazing tips that help you afford to travel. Thanks for taking a moment to read this post! Your support means the world to me. Happy travels my friend.
