If one of your 2014 resolutions is to travel, here are some great ideas to help you reach this goal.

January is the perfect time to start saving and planning for your vacation. Whether you want to travel home to visit family, or explore a new destination, planning ahead will save money, time, and stress.

One way to budget for your vacation is to buy online travel gift cards. These cards allow you to save for your vacation over time, without paying interest charges. For instance, buy a $100 online gift card every paycheck. This way you’ll save for your holiday over time, and avoid the sky high credit card bill the week you return from holidays. Gift cards offer a way to book vacations online without using a credit or debit card.

Another way to save is do your online research well in advance. Know the prices of your flights and hotel options, so when you see a sale, you can act fast and secure the deal. Subscribe to e-newsletters from your favorite airline or deal site, so you’ll be the first to know about special promotions and offers.

Good luck with your 2014 travel resolutions.

Bon voyage – and don’t forget to send a postcard.
