Creating a realistic holiday budget

There are literally thousands of websites designed to make travelling easier and cheaper than ever before and it can be tempting to jet off on a whim without considering all the moving parts.

If you're itching to get away but don't know how to build a savings pot to get you there, use Money Dashboard to instantly compare your monthly expenses against your income and see how much you can afford to put away each month.

Even if you won’t be able to afford the holiday for some time, having a plan in place for it will give you something positive to anticipate, and make it easier to save up.

Thin wallet, thick passport

It's important to look out for areas where you might be over-spending. Are there regular expenses you can forgo while you save? You may have to make sacrifices to afford the luxury of travel but it will be worth it when you're enjoying your dream get-away.

With Money Dashboard you'll never be in the dark. We show you all of your transactions, automatically categorised into helpful buckets so you know exactly what's going out, no matter where you are in the world.

It's easier than you think

We teamed up with some smart people at the University of Edinburgh and Harvard Business School to understand the science behind how people actually save money through budgeting.

They discovered that new Money Dashboard users typically saved 14% of their discretionary spend in the first month. Furthermore, each log in correlated to a higher likelihood that someone would meet their budget target - so much so, that each login can roughly be equated to a £10 saving for an individual!

So, if you keep track of what's going out and spend money wisely, your dream holiday could be just on the horizon.

“I had no idea just how much of my income went towards socialising and nights out... To have this information available instantly does make you think twice before saying yes to everything!”
