There’s a great big world out there just waiting to be explored. And whether you are looking to tick off your bucket list destinations, relax on a deserted island, or take your family to Disneyland, there’s a lot to consider when planning a holiday.
Researching and planning your trip can be half the fun. And with so much information available online, it has never been easier to find a great deal and read reviews before booking your holiday.
Alternatively, you might want to seize the day and travel sooner by using a personal loan to help cover your travel expenses. To discuss a personal loan, contact us, book a Mobile Lender or visit a Service Centre.
Regardless of where you are travelling, you need to decide how you plan to pay for expenses along the way. Even if you pre-book your flights, accommodation and tours, you will still need spending money available for meals, tips, gifts and activities.
You should also consider your destination. Some countries might not offer easy or reliable access to ATMs or electronic payment terminals, while in others it might be unsafe and impractical to carry around large amounts of cash.
Holidays don't always go as planned. You may encounter medical expenses, trip cancellations or lost luggage. You may even require travel insurance to be able to enter certain countries, or travel on some cruises or tours. You can refer to the insurance options available through G&C Mutual Bank.
