As soon as signs of warmer weather appears, so do back-to-back activities in one of the busiest seasons of the year. There are major religious holidays and observances, spring break trips or staycations, graduations and end-of-the-school-year activities, Mother's Day, and more. Each of these events, from dinners to gifts to outings, can take a real hit on your budget, if not for some intentional planning.
Experts are predicting 2023 to be a big year for travel, with COVID-19 being less of a concern in many places, and people who haven't traveled in years getting ready for a change of scenery. This, coupled with recent inflation concerns, can mean spring travel can get pricey and tricky. Many travelers use their tax return, or a credit card, to finance their spring break travel, but should anticipate higher prices than normal thanks to the surge in interest in traveling around this time of year. Some flight costs are up 30% based on demand for March and April, for example.
Here are some money-saving tricks to ensure you head into summer on track with your spending goals, not behind.
