July 1, 2021

With summer here and travel restrictions easing, it’s time to think about getting away. Budget-minded fliers have more options on last-minute deals by being flexible on destinations, dates, or airports to fly in and out of. If you’re flying on a budget airline, try to pack light and watch for hidden fees. Heading overseas? Use a debit or credit card with no foreign transaction fees. And if you’re thinking of buying a new car and taking a road trip, be sure to talk to your credit union for a great rate on an auto loan. With a little flexibility and planning, your travel dollars can go further than you think.
