You want to keep your debt at a manageable level so you can start planning your next trip. Here are some things to consider.

  • Set yourself a holiday budget. Set a daily spending limit and stick to it.
  • Keep exchange rates in mind and factor in charges for overseas cash withdrawals and conversion fees.
  • Use savings as well as your credit card or a loan to keep your debt levels to a minimum.
  • Once you’re home, try paying more than your minimum monthly payment on your credit card or loan. Even $20 a month can help reduce the interest.
