How to financially prepare for your holiday

Part two


The last blog post discussed how you can prepare financially for a holiday. This blog post contains some more tips and tricks to help you have a fun-filled, but still fiscally responsible, vacation period. After all, prior preparation makes for the smoothest experience.

Tips and tricks

First off, try being a tourist in your own backyard. Rather than spending lots of money on plane tickets overseas, try checking out the activities and scenery in Perth and surrounds. From underground bars, to the Pinnacles, to Rottnest’s beaches, there’s plenty to do in and around Perth and Western Australia.

Secondly, start your budgeting and other forms of scheduling and planning far before you actually go. The more prepared you are, and the earlier you start saving, the more money you will have to spend.

Thirdly, be open to new experiences. Go to the local food markets or try preparing food from a local grocery store a couple of nights when on holiday, rather than eating out for every meal. That way you’ll also see what the local lifestyle is like.

Last on the list – have fun. Because at the end of the day, a holiday is meant to be – you guessed it – a holiday. Not a stressful experience. So while it is important to be mindful of your spending, make sure it does not overshadow the joy of travelling or trying something new.


In conclusion, if you carefully plan your holiday it most likely go smoothly. In addition to this, if you choose money-saving – but fun – activities, your wallet will thank you as much as your family will for the happy memories.
