Taking time off and traveling is fun, relaxing and sometimes stressful.
Planning ahead and getting your finances in order before you travel will allow you to get the most out of your vacation and leave some of your worries at home.
Here’s a checklist to guide you through the financial preparations needed before leaving home.
Once you get home from vacation, check to see that everything went smoothly and all your bills were paid on time. If there were any problems, follow up immediately.
