How do we afford to travel so much?
Two of the questions I am asked most is “What do we do for a living?” and “How do we afford to travel so much?” While I do respond to these inquires individually I have been avoiding writing a post on it. The reason is because I know how things can come across over the internet and I never want anyone to misconstrue my words or take them the wrong way. With that said, I feel it’s time to address these questions
What We Do for a Living
Both my husband and I work regular full-time M-F, 8-5 desk jobs. I work in HR as a recruiter and my husband works in sales.
How we afford to travel
The number one way we afford to travel is with a dedicated vacation savings account for travel. Each month we set aside an established amount to go into our travel fund, that way when a flight deal comes up we have the cash to pay for it.
We Use Credit Card Sign-Up Bonuses to Pay for Travel
This year we were able to use points from credit card sign-up bonuses to pay for our flights to Thailand, our hotel in Chiang Mai, half of our flights to Amsterdam, and 2 of our flights to Cuba.
Say what you want about airlines like Spirit but they have afforded our family the opportunity to travel frequently. From getting $100 round trip flights to Denver for our family ski trip to saving $600 over the next airline for our flights to Costa Rica Spirit always holds us down. Plus we never pay for bags and save $168over online prices just buying our flights at the airport. Check out my site to learn more how we maximize our savings!
