Pick your destination

Before anything else, you need to know where in the world you would like to see. Perhaps there’s a beach somewhere that’s calling you in South East Asia? Or perhaps you feel like backpacking across Europe? These days the easiest way to discover the latest fantastic destination is online, so do some research and follow your heart.

Once you choose a spot on the map, check online or visit your travel agent to get an idea of what the total cost will be. Take into account things like accommodation, flights, food, spending money and activities. Keep in mind that these costs will differ according to the country you wish to visit, and whether you prefer to travel 5-star or on a budget.

Finance your trip

Once you know where you’re going, you need to think about how you will afford to get there.

Using your savings

Once you know where you’re going, you need to think about how you will afford to get there.

If you’re patient or are planning for a future trip, the best way to pay is by opening a high-interest savings account like The Greater Bank Bonus Saver. This account lets you reach your savings goal sooner by paying a high rate of interest on your savings.

If you need to get away sooner, another option available to you is a Holiday Loan. These loans enable you to enjoy your holiday now and pay it off in instalments later.
