Recession-Proof Vacation Tips


Beach Vacation

Travel Off-Season
- Lower Prices and Less Crowds

Go Where the Dollar is Strong
- Caribbean, South America, Asia, Barbados, Jamaica, Jordan and Switzerland

Bundle Your Travel
Very often you can save money by booking Package Deals that include airfare, hotel, car etc.

Hedge your Travel/Hotel Budget
If at all possible, you need to get your trip priced — and then locked in U.S. dollars. You then need to hedge your travel budget against currency fluctuations

Use Promotional "City Cards"
to Save on Attractions
- Cities around the world offer
City Cards/Passes to tourists that promise savings through discounts on top tourist attractions and public transportation.

Use Your ATM Card
When You Need Cash

Don't exchange U.S. dollars overseas. You'll get killed two ways — higher exchange rates and commissions from the money changers. Instead, use your ATM card to take out only the amount of foreign cash you might need at any one time. You get the exchange rate the bank gives its own customers, you take out only what you need, and you're not carrying around huge wads of cash. There are now a number of banks, financial institutions and brokerage houses that offer no-fee ATM cards — and if there was ever a time to have a no-fee ATM card, this is that time — when you're traveling overseas.
