You have low credit card debt, an emergency fund, and a retirement account – your finances are in control like a well-oiled machine.
You work hard, and now it is time for a well-deserved break. According to industry expert, the US is going to experience an increase of summer travel. Gas prices are still low, airfares are still dropping, and the economy overall is still improving.
But experts at Debt.com are still advising consumers to be careful with their spending, especially while on vacation when it is easy to go overboard. Howard Dvorkin, CPA and Chairman of Debt.com advises people to, “Avoid extra expenses you don’t need. For instance, don’t go out for breakfast every morning if your hotel offers a decent breakfast that’s included in your room costs, or don’t take expensive tours when you can walk around with a guide book.”
Some cities even offer free tours and activities so always check with the welcome and tourism centers for special offers.
