Go on a holiday

Everything you need to know about planning and financing your dream holiday

Where in the world?

Your journey begins with the hours you spend
researching images of white sandy beaches
or snow-capped mountains.

Perhaps think about which part of the world
you are most culturally drawn to and which sites
you would like to see; then work backwards from
there and consider how much time off work
you’ll be able to take, how far away your
destination is and whether or not seasons
are an important factor.

Flights and accommodation

Begin by seeking out the best airfare and hotel deals into your destination city by using online comparison sites, asking your friends and reading travel forums. If you’re pressed for time or visiting a peculiar destination, you may like to consider using the expert help of a travel agent.

Choose your sights

Create a list of destinations, stopovers, sites and locations you’d like to visit, and how much time you would like to spend at each. This should give you a good idea of how long your stay will be, which route you’ll be taking and how you’ll be travelling internally. 

Make a budget to make it happen

Do your sums

Decide on how much money you will need for the overall holiday, including flights, accommodation, insurance and gear, and then add in the price of food, activities and spending money.

Think about how much savings you have, how much you will earn before you depart and then how much you would like to borrow.

Personal Loans start from as little as $2,000.
