Certain credit cards offer deals for their customers as well. Using card to book rooms and flights with certain hotels and airlines can provide a discount for cardholders. These discounts, while often small, provide additional savings, providing more money for trip itself.
If you only need certain components such as hotel or hotel and attraction tickets, looking for individual offers and comparing what is out there can help in saving money. The hotel websites often post special deals, and time of trip can affect costs as well. Going during off peak times is often less expensive than going during peak times such as weekend and around holidays.
On a final note, many people apply for a home equity loan or line of credit which comes in handy for a well deserved vacation. Credit unions offer great rates and may be found at http://www.CreditUnionRate.com

Why Join The Credit Union? Better Benefits Are Hard To Find!Written by Nicole Soltau

Once you become a member of credit union you always remain a member - as long as you maintain an account. Even after your discharge from services or relocation you can still be a member of your credit union. Again, because you are a member-owner of your not for profit credit union you derive financial benefits that are reserved for stock holders at for profit banks. In other words, you get higher interest rates on basic savings (share) accounts, interest-bearing checking accounts and CDs. Many credit unions also pay “bonus” dividends in especially good years. Credit unions also offer lower interest rates on credit cards and loans than banks. This comes as a strong point in favor of credit unions. Many young families who are just starting out have very demanding financial needs and most often they are required to stretch their limited dollars. From credit cards to car loans, credit unions consistently offer lower rates, better terms and lower fees.
This holds true even for mortgage rates and equity loans. Credit unions are known to provide better and competitive mortgage rates and equity loans. Not only are rates low, but closing costs generally are much lower than those paid through a conventional lender.
Your local credit union helps you make most of your money. From personalized service to low interest and high returns its easy to see why 89 million members depend on a credit union to meet their banking needs.
