As winter (finally) wraps up, we are thinking about heading to our favorite vacation destination. Whether you are leaving the state, or the country, make sure you are covered, financially. Follow these steps to get the most out of your getaway without breaking the bank.
Credit cards are easy, you can spend all you want just pay it back month-by-month... OR you can plan ahead and automatically transfer money out of your paycheck to a Telco Triad Vacation Club savings account. What's better than paying interest on a credit card? Collecting dividends on a savings account!
Vacations are supposed to be fun and relaxing, and that's great, just don't get too relaxed with your spending and not have enough to pay your bills when you get back to reality. Come up with a budget ahead of time and set aside a certain amount of money that you are allowed to spend on certain things (food, drinks, entertainment, or gifts). That way, you can bring back that laid-back vacation feeling instead of trading it in for financial stress.
You trust us to keep your finances safe. If we see your card being used across the country and you didn't tell us you were leaving, our security team may block transactions to keep your money safe. If you are headed out of town, just let us know where you will be traveling to and you can use your card without interruption!
