Setting aside funds for an overseas vacation is not easy. Most couples confess that each time they set aside a vacation corpus; it gets depleted due to some exigency at home. The best option most people use while embarking on an impromptu vacation is to use their credit card for buying air tickets & paying hotels bills. But the downside of adopting such an approach is that credit limits often get stretched on outstation trips and couples usually find themselves in a debt trap after returning from a vacation. Sound financial prudence suggests that one should always plan a vacation that can be paid off in a maximum of three months.


For any couple who plans to visit USA on a vacation, air tickets would ideally form the largest chunk of the travel cost. The best way to find cheap USA flights is to log on to an online travel portal that allows you to select the lowest fares out of a dozen airlines. More savings can be incurred if one is flexible enough to fly mid-week or during the off-peak season. Accommodation costs can be curtailed if one chooses to stay with a friend/ relative or opt for economical holiday homes, B&B establishments, youth hostels at their destination instead of a luxury hotel. Food costs can be lowered by eating out during happy hours at restaurants. Another smart way to reduce your food bills on a vacation is to carry some cereals and breakfast snacks so that you don’t have to buy every meal at the hotel.


Keep these handy tips in mind before you book your flights to USA for your next holiday.

Happy Journey!!
