For workers, a vacation gives a chance to take a break from the life routines that sometimes feel boring. For parents, vacationers are a happy opportunity and spend more quality time with children.
Therefore, it can be concluded that vacation is a necessity. Then planning cost for vacation is very important to do. As a financial planner, I suggest that you make a special budget vacation in a year.
What to consider in making holiday planning?
1. Determine financial ability.
Your financial skills can be measured by looking at:
A. How much money you can set aside every month for holiday needs
B. How much funds you set aside from the annual bonus
The number of these components will show the number of holiday funds you are able to collect. So knowing from the very beginning of the number of your real holiday funds will make you have restrictions on the frequencies, objectives, accommodation, and transportation that will be chosen during the holidays.
2. Determine the holiday frequency you need.
This is of course tailored to the existing funds. You can choose a holiday once a year, once or for two years. Taking into consideration the available funds and the desired holiday frequency, you will be more able to share how much funds are available for each holiday trip.
3. Set the destination or location of each holiday trip and calculate the outline of how much transportation and accommodation needs.
After you count, for example, you are able to do two-holiday trips. One holiday is to go out of town not too far for 2 – 3 days, and one more trip going outside the island or abroad.
So, the limits of funds available will help you determine where to go on vacation.
Holiday planning is recommended in the early years so that the opportunity to make early booking for transportation and accommodation can be adjusted the number of funds accumulated since the beginning of the year.
This holiday planning is highly recommended to avoid any indebtedness for the holidays. Remember, if the holidays are sudden, then the price to be paid is expensive, while the available funds are still very small.
Finally, a holiday destination is having fun and eliminating the saturation you can get. So when you come home from a vacation, you will not be giddy with debt bills that can make wonderful memories during your holiday to be lost.
