What's Your Travel Style

Do you live for today and pay tomorrow? Or do you actually stick to a budget when traveling? It’s easy to get seduced on vacay and think, “When’s the next time I’ll be here... YOLO, right?!?” But milking your trip doesn’t mean going broke–just be realistic about your habits. Take the quiz and find out where you stand.

QUESTION 1 OF 6

Where do you plan on crashing?

How much are you packing?

What’s your day-to-day?

Feeling touristy?

What’s on the menu?

What’s stowing away in your luggage home?


The results are in:

Splurge.

Splurge.

You might think, “A little credit card debt never hurt anybody.” And since your champagne taste isn’t always budget-friendly, make sure you plan accordingly for your trips. To get the best of both worlds, be smart about saving for your high-end vacays, and cut back on day-to-day expenses. Yes, that might mean missing some happy hours with friends… but so worth it, right?

Your motto might be, “Not everything has to be fancy pants, but a splurge here and there is totes fine.” You like the finer things in life, but they don’t control you (or your budget). Solid! So, if you’re ever feeling bold on vacay, try apps like “Hotel Tonight” to get the best rates at some of the best hotels. Now we’re speaking your language, aren’t we?

You might favor the old saying, “Less is more.” And guess what... your low-maintenance way of thinking saves you money for things that actually matter. Money for rent, check. Money for food, check. And money for more trips... check. The less you spend on vacation, the more vacations you can take. Bon Voyage!
