With the school holidays in full swing, you may have booked some well-deserved time away.
It’s always a good idea to find ways to save money while travelling, so here are some tips that can help you save money on your travels. ✈️✈️
• Opt to pay in the local currency on your card 💳
By choosing to pay in the local currency, you can avoid unnecessary charges and get a better conversion rate. Remember to check with your bank about any foreign transaction fees that may apply.
• Purchase travel insurance as soon as you book 📝
Purchasing travel insurance as soon as you book your holiday not only covers you during your vacation but also provides protection before you even leave.
• Obtain a GHIC card 🏥
This FREE card enables you to save on medical fees (or in some cases, no fees) while traveling in the European Union. You can get your card here.
PLEASE NOTE: This is not a replacement for travel insurance, you should have both.
• Get foreign currency in advance 💰
When it comes to foreign currency, it’s always best to plan ahead and avoid exchanging money at the airport due to higher fees and rates. Research and compare exchange rates in advance
Happy Travels! 🧳
