Everyone needs to get away from it all now and then. A change of scenery can be a great way of hitting the reset button and giving yourself a new lease on your life. What could possibly be better than going away on a dream getaway? Going with the person you love, of course!
A romantic getaway with someone you love is an experience unlike any other. Most of us would spend our whole lives on romantic getaways if we could. Unfortunately, the real world is rarely so kind.
Romantic getaways are expensive, they require logistical and financial planning to pull off properly. Here are some simple things that anyone can do in order to raise funds for their next romantic trip away.
1. Set Yourself a Budget
Before you get too deeply involved in saving for your next romantic getaway, it is a good idea to work out exactly how much you can and want to spend on it. Setting yourself a spending limit, and making yourself stick to it, will help you to ensure that you don’t end up breaking the bank trying to make your getaway perfect.
When you are setting your budget, take into account all the spending that you will need to do while you are on your break, make sure that you also leave yourself a little bit of wiggle room to account for any emergencies that might arise unexpectedly.
2. Reclaim Money You are Owed
There are a number of circumstances in which you might be able to claim back some money, SimplePersonalLoans has an excellent guide to the most common sources of reclaimed money. For example, you might have been mis-sold your PPI at some point in the last 30 years. If you have, you can make a claim that could be worth thousands.
3. Check What Benefits You are Entitled to
Many people are entitled to some kind of benefits but are completely unaware of it. It is always worth checking out whether there is anything that you are entitled to that you aren’t et claiming. You can use the online benefits calculator to check how much money you could be getting. The application process for benefits takes a little while, so don’t expect any money too quickly.
4. Open a Savings Account
Most UK banks enable customers to open up a new account using the bank’s app. It is free and easy to create a new savings account and is one of the best things you can o to encourage yourself to save money. By taxing yourself a little bit, say 10-20% if your income, and putting it straight into your savings account, you can fill your bank account much faster than you might think.
The most special moments of any romantic getaway will be free (hopefully), but having money to spend on your trip will certainly make it more enjoyable. Whether that means a nicer hotel or a more romantic dinner, saving up before your trip will pay off in a number of different ways.
