The Thought Card: Travel Tips, Travel Hacking, and Personal Finance For Financially Savvy Travelers

Sep 7, 2023

Is getting into debt for travel worth it? According to studies, Americans spend on average $2,830 per household on summer vacations, an all time high. As inflation continues to negatively impact travel, and airfare costs soar, vacation budgets are causing some to give up travel completely, while others take on debt to fund these experiences.

If you’re hoping to travel this year, there are plenty of ways to save money and avoid going into debt. Uncover 10 practical strategies to vacation debt-free.

This episode is created in partnership with Medjet, an air medical transport membership that gets you to home.

Whether you are hospitalized while traveling or feel threatened, you can call them. There are never any claims, out-of-pocket expenses (outside your membership), or surprise bills afterward. 

Click here for the full write-up about Medjet to learn why standard travel and medical insurance sometimes isn’t enough and scenarios where having a Medjet membership would be beneficial.
