Infographic: Tips for Saving Money to Travel

by Emma Hackwood

Do you have a bucket list item that you just can’t seem to check off? Or a dream vacation that you just can’t seem to make happen?  There are a lot of things in life that can get in the way of seeing the world, but the most common claim people make is this: “I can’t afford to go.” Before you nod your head in agreement, let us take the role of your Financial Frenemy for a moment and tell you how to save to see the world.

According to Stats Canada, the average Canadian wastes a lot of money. From entertainment to clothing to coffee, we throw our credit cards and pocket change at the things we think are inexpensive or small purchases that don’t matter… but they do. You may not be buying fancy cars or flashy diamonds you can’t afford, but that sandwich you buy from the deli by your office every day could be taking the place of next year’s getaway. The truth hurts, we know. But don’t fret, it’s not too late to turn things around and we’re here to tell you how.

If you can make small changes to your lifestyle each day, we’re confident you can have more money in your pocket and take that trip you’ve been dreaming of sooner than you think! Below are some simple techniques you can apply to your day-to-day life to help you save more money for travel!
