Going Away for the Labour Day Weekend? Here are Five Tips to Budget for Your Trip!

Going on holiday might sometimes feel like a luxury we can’t afford. Travelling is usually expensive, but it doesn’t always have to be that way. Here are some simple tips to help you save up a fair bit of cash during the upcoming Labour Day holiday.

1. Use Skyscanner to Book Your Flights

If you have to travel during peak seasons like a long weekend for a vacation, don’t worry. Skyscanner can help you to score some pretty good deals by compiling data from hundreds of different flights so you can flexibly schedule out your trip.

2. Try Loyalty Programmes

There are tonnes of loyalty programmes out there. If you are an avid foodie or traveler, most of them can save you quite some money. Consider Accor Hotel’s loyalty programmes – they have hotels all across the world and their dining/hospitality deals are hard to beat! Travel internationally, save money and enjoy the high life, all at the same time.

3.Go AirBnB

Living in someone else’s home might not seem like a fun idea at first, but unless you have given it a go, you will never know if you might like it. Some travelers that try AirBnB never go back to traditional hotels, and for good reason. AirBnB can offer spacious rooms with good utilities for decent prices. Some AirBnB hosts are actually very welcoming and even highly ranked on the listings, so look out for such reviews. Those with limited rooms are also highly popular and trustworthy.

4.Choose Money Changers That Offer Good Exchange Rates

Not all money changers offer good rates. Consider choosing reputable money changers known for treating their customers well. A couple of suggestions would be the money changers in Mustafa Center at Little India or ones at The Arcade in Raffles Place. Or search for the best exchange rates across the city with our get4x web and mobile application!

5. Select Dedicated Credit Cards for Travelling

Credit cards for frequent flyers can give you significant rebates if you choose correctly. They can grant you access to VIP lounges across the world and earn you points that could save you a fair amount of money on your next flight. Some good credit cards in Singapore include the Citi PremierMiles Visa Card or UOB PRVI Miles Platinum Card.

The above are just some of the many ways through which we can stretch our dollar further when travelling. Happy saving and here’s to a great Labour Day weekend and holiday!
