047 – Tammy Symons- Vacation Smartly

In this episode, KT and Tammy discuss: 

  • The money that goes into vacations and your vacation budget 
  • Only spending what you can afford on vacation 
  • Knowing what your purchase includes 
  • When to buy the cheapest airplane tickets 


Key Takeaways: 

  • Find hotels that have kitchens so that you don’t have to go out to dinner every meal of your vacation 
  • Decide what’s worth it when buying items on vacation 
  • Vacation traveling websites don’t have all the airlines on them, so do some of your own digging around 
  • Tuesday’s have the best prices for buying airplane tickets and other traveling packages 

“You’re taking a vacation to actually have a vacation. Get out of the house and do something!” — Tammy
