Ways to Save for Your 2016 Travel Plans

Make 2016 your year of adventure! Here are some helpful tips on saving money:

1. Open a savings account at an online bank, because those banks generally offer the highest interest rates. That way, you put money in the account and then don't touch it until it's time for your trip.

2. Use a travel rewards credit card for all your purchases throughout the year. Some cards offer points to use towards travel, cash back or free flights and hotel rooms.

3. Cut things from your regular budget that you won't need while traveling, like cable and your gym membership.

The sooner you start saving, the sooner you'll be on your way!
