Bags are packed, car is fuelled, and you’re ready to hit the holidays if full effect. Your only concern is blowing your holiday budget within the first week.
Stick to your budget with a prepaid card
Instead of borrowing credit from your credit card for that righteously expensive night on the town, why not take from yourself. It is your money after all. You saved for this holiday and you want to have fun. Load up a prepaid credit card with the funds you want to use and travel safely without the wad of cash in your back pocket and without draining your bank account or credit line dry! Unlike traditional credit cards, you can’t go over your limit and there is no interest charge because you are not borrowing money from a creditor.
You are using your own money.
Most prepaid cards have zero cost or a minimal issue fee and some may have other charges. AusPost has a Load & Go prepaid Visa card that is accepted anywhere Visa is accepted, you can reload online or in-store, no reload fees, no monthly fees, no credit checks, no interest charges and no application form.
Be smart while traveling this holiday season. Using prepaid cards could be a wise alternative to starting 2017 with a massive blow to your funds or credit line.
