Planning a trip can be an exciting experience, but it can also be a daunting task. It's important to make sure that you have enough money saved up for your trip so that you don't end up overspending. To ensure that you have enough money saved for your trip, it's important to compare the monthly savings figure from the vacation calculator to 30% of your income that goes to your needs. If the monthly vacation savings are lower than the total amount of wishes, then you may need to make some adjustments in order to make your dream vacation a reality.
Be willing to shop in ways that are not always the most convenient and you will save a lot of money in the process. For example, if you are looking for a place to stay, consider staying in a cheaper neighborhood outside of the city or sharing a small house with roommates. This can help you save hundreds of dollars in housing each month. Additionally, if you are looking for ways to save on attractions, consider staying in a nice hotel on the beach and resting on the sand instead.
It's also important to remember that saving enough money for travel, or anything else, requires sacrifice and patience. I generally recommend that my clients save at least 15% of their income for retirement in order to have a secure future. This money can also serve as an emergency fund in case any problems arise.
