As summer is fast approaching, the warmer days naturally make you want to get outside more and enjoy the beautiful weather. It’s no surprise then, that Summer months are a very popular vacation time. If you’re in need of a getaway but previous bad credit is holding you back, here are three ways you can save money while still taking some time off.
1. Stay Closer To Home
A vacation doesn’t have to mean jet setting to another part of the world. There are many beautiful places right here in Alberta that you can visit and still feel like you’ve had a wonderful vacation. Consider heading out to Kananaskis or Jasper and enjoy the picturesque beauty our province has to offer. There are hundreds of camp sites to enjoy a week-long getaway on the cheap.
2. Drive Instead of Fly
Flights are expensive these days and unless you book long in advance, it can be hard to find a good deal. If you do decide to travel within Alberta, drive. We have one of the most scenic highway routes and it doesn’t take very long to feel like you’ve escaped the hustle and bustle of the city.
3. Buy Used
What’s that you say? You don’t have a car and there’s no chance at getting one due to bad credit? Nonsense. There are great companies out there like Auto Loans Calgary and Finance Today that guarantee approval regardless of your credit history. In addition, they also offer used cars for sale that are in great condition at a great price.
For instance, check out this 2014 Ford Focus SE Hatchback. It would make the perfect vehicle for a Summer road trip and it offers awesome fuel economy. Companies like Auto Loans Calgary and Finance Today also offer used car loans if you need help paying it off over a longer period of time.
