Vacation is indeed an energizing tonic and we all need it. But in the time of global slowdown, we feel threatened and apprehensive towards going for vacation. We fear bankruptcy. But let me surprise you, even in this time of financial crunch you can go for your annual vacation, have fun. You need not pay handsome for a vacation, just know how to save money and enjoy your trip.
Just follow these advices and enjoy your vacation.
Make sure, you get your travel tickets and hotel accommodation done, much in advance. A holiday package always becomes expensive in the last moment. Seeing the demand agencies may hike package deal amount. If you are going on your own, even then book your tickets and accommodation much in advance, as price goes up later and turn exorbitant during holiday time like Christmas, New Year. Reserve your days for vacation in advance and get your employer’s approval of the same.
Go for vacation, but just minimize it. This way you won’t be bankrupt and also holiday dream will come true. If you have planned five or six destinations to visit, cut it short, visit just one or two places as per your affordability and preference. If you have been planning for a weeklong trip, instead, settle for three or four days long plan.
Don’t indulge into too much luxury and comfort. Instead settle for a no-frills budget accommodation. Try to get hold of someone’s house or guest house, where you can make your own meals and save eating out cost. Or go for a budget hotel, with no add-on services. Take food from small street-side eating joints or vendors if you wish to save tax-inclusive eating cost at hotel.
For sightseeing, visiting local market or eating out take local buses and trains instead of spending too much on car rentals.
Book your accommodation and travel ticket online, it will save your money otherwise you would have paid to agents or dealers. E-booking will help you save 10% compared to booking in person or phone. Compare price of holiday packages, flights, hotels, car rentals on internet.
Make your holiday planning with a pre-determined budget, which is realistic and logical. Move on with a fixed amount of money in your pocket and avoid using credit card.

If you are young then finding a job is difficult only when the economy is down and the companies has stopped hiring new people, but as soon as you cross the 40 mark, getting a job in even a bullish economy with lots of companies hiring starts becoming difficult.
What with the age?
Well, it has less to do with the age, and more to do with the newness in technology and failure of mid-aged individuals to deal with them. As it often happens, people in their mid-to-late forties tend to become slow on learning.
Another thing that keeps people in mid-to-late forties away from job is the salary they seek. I am not saying that you should not be compensated fairly, or at least you should get the sum you need to pay your bills and put some amount in savings.
But, this is not how people running businesses think. They are less inclined towards humanitarian goals, and more towards raking moola and increasing profit. Young people, despite their inexperience, are considered more apt for this goal as teaching new tricks to new horse is comparatively easy and so is taming them.
Then how to get a job in 40s?
This is the question that keeps people in 40s and jobless awake at nights. These are the people who have family to support, and maybe kids to send to university. Unemployment in such time is very difficult to deal with.
But, fortunately there is a way out and in this series I will tell you what to do to get hired. The advices shared will be workable. Do not treat this series as a read-and-forget series.
