From vacations with friends and extended family to the occasional school trip, we often find ourselves traveling in larger groups. While group trips can be an absolute blast, there’s always a moment when we find ourselves questioning whether or not it’s worth the effort.
Life doesn’t always go according to plan, which sometimes means you have to change or even cancel your travel plans. Whether is a canceled family vacation because of a sick family member, or a last-minute client meeting date change, we’ve found ourselves in a few situations where we needed to cancel a flight.
Stumped on what to get that one friend or family member this holiday season? Consider buying gift cards using your travel loyalty points and miles.
Ada and I love catching up with friends and family partly because it gives us a chance to relive some of our most memorable vacations. But while those close to us are excited to see where our family has traveled, they’re often more eager to find out how they can start planning a trip of their own.
As is the case for most families, our holiday travel schedule can be quite a balancing act. Between Ada’s side of the family on the West Coast and mine on the East Coast, we often switch off between visiting each side for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
If you like to travel as much as I do, you’ve probably dreamed of soaking up some sun on an all-expenses paid vacation.
As a family of frequent travelers, our end goal is often to save up points and miles for upgrades and perks, a free hotel stay or flight on our next family vacation. But sometimes, we find ourselves with more points and miles than we know what to do with.
Traveling with a family can be chaotic. Between packing plenty of snacks, charging your phones and tablets for in-flight entertainment, hailing a cab and navigating your way around the airport, most of us give ourselves plenty of time before a flight.
Can you believe it’s that time of year again? While the start of the school year always brings some much-needed peace and quiet at home, back-to-school supplies seem to require a budget of their own.
Teaching our kids to make smart financial decisions has always been important to us. As Penny heads off to college in the fall, we want to make sure she builds strong spending and saving habits before leaving.
