The experts in personal finance suggest you to follow the following recommendations so that you can enjoy your rest without leaving your pockets broken:

1. BREAK THE PIGGY
The ideal is that you already have a previous saving, so break the bank and evaluate which destination is the best for the budget you have. “Maybe Cancun becomes Cuernavaca, but it’s preferable a trip that you can pay to one that takes you into debt for a year or more,” says Daniel Urias, an expert in personal finance and founder of the blog Cooltura Financiera.

LAST MINUTE VACATION? COMPARE, SAVE AND TRAVEL

If you are going to use your credit card to supplement travel expenses -such as transportation and lodging-, check your court date. If you are near rest days, for example on March 26, buy your tickets on March 27 or 28 or use it to pay during your trip. This will allow you to have a margin of between 30 and 50 days to pay the debt without interest, explains Uriah.

If you buy months without interest, try that the payment period does not exceed three to six months, since then come the holiday periods of summer and winter. There is no point in still having the holidays at the beginning of the year, says Abraham Vergara, a specialist in finance and a professor at the Universidad Iberoamericana.

2. PLANE, AUTO OR BUS
Sharing a single car with several people will allow you to divide the costs of gasoline and booths among all. In the Trace your route, from the Ministry of Communications and Transportation, you can calculate the approximate cost of your trip. With just putting the type of vehicle, the starting point and the destination, the system will calculate the distance, the time of transfers, the total cost of the booths and the fuel expense, says Urias.

If you decide to go by plane or bus, look for promotions, packages or coupons. Also, take advantage of discounts with your student, teacher or older adult credential, recommends Vergara.

3. LODGING TO THE MEASURE
With mobile applications it is easy and quick to book a hotel room or a small apartment. If you are going with friends, renting only one place to spend the night is fine, but if you are going with a family it is worth asking if the accommodation includes breakfast. This way you can go for a walk without hunger and willing to enjoy without having to buy food for a few hours.

“If you have decided to share the expense with your partner or friends, be clear about how much each one will contribute and for what it is enough, communication is important”, says Uriah.

4. PREVENTING NOT TO REGRET
On the way there is never a craving for an appetizer, so be prepared. Buy in advance at the mall bottled water and fried foods, because in the stores that are on the road or in tourist places the prices can increase up to double, advises the expert of Cooltura Financiera.

TIPS THAT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL SAFE ON VACATIONS

When making your suitcase, check that your personal items such as cream, toothbrush, soap, towels, sandals and swimsuit are not missing, because buying them at the tourist destination will cost you 30 or 50% more expensive. There’s no point in spending if you already have them, the blogger adds.

Consider taking cash or a credit card to deal with health emergencies, such as a stomach infection, cold, fall or sprain. It is even useful if the car breaks down or you have to change your flight upon your return.

5. TRAVEL LIKE ITS YOUR HOME PLACE
Make your stay cheaper, use local means of transport such as buses, bicycles or walks. Choose one or two days of your trip to dine in a special restaurant, but the other days eat in places with affordable prices.
