Our #Top3 to Save BIG on your Next Vacation

Trying to plan your dream summer vacation and keep coming up short of funds (and fun)?

Check out our #top3 that can help you save big without sacrificing a big time!

Air BnB– Air BnB gives you the freedom to explore the world without paying an exorbitant amount for unique lodging. Homeowners and investment property owners utilize the site to offer their properties up for rent. You can also book excursions with REAL local people from the area to which you are traveling through the site. If you’ve got time to do your own research, booking through #airbnb can allow you to immerse yourself in the place you are traveling without paying typical tourist prices. The headline on the homepage reads “book unique homes and experience a city like a local.”

2.  Groupon Getaways– Groupon delivers specialized “deals” for your area to your inbox daily. These deals feature businesses across a variety of spectrums including dining, entertainment, health and beauty services and more! Groupon Getaways features just vacation deals- and there is a little something for everyone. There are always many options for 1-2 night weekend vacations along with longer 7, 10 or even 12 night vacations to destinations you may have thought you would never have an opportunity to visit- at GREAT prices (that often include your airfare)!

3. Living Social Escapes– As what some would consider a “sister” site to Groupon, Living Social provides very similar offerings. Use it weekly for everyday deals on local activities, food and the like, but use Living Social Escapes to plan BIG vacations without BIG bucks. You can search destination deals by region if you are looking for a quick weekend getaway, or search by your destination to look for longer term vacation travel packages (many including airfare)!

Even with great travel deals you may still need some funds to enjoy your vacation the way you want to so consider a low rate personal loan for your vacation from NC Community Credit Union! You can apply quickly and easily online now.
