Few savings accounts offer the kind of immediate fun and respite that a typically vacation savings account does. This unique type of savings account is setup to do exactly what its name implies: Create a fund that can be used by our members to go on vacation at some point in the future.
Since most people begin an account like this with an “end game” in mind, the account is structured in such a way that it maximizes the potential earnings through interest rates, bonuses, benchmarks, and a comprehensive plan that helps savers meet their goal on time or even early. This is done in a few different ways, depending where the account is offered.
A Vacation Savings Account Offers Excellent Benefits
Most people think of a vacation as a real getaway that involves driving, flying, or even cruising long distances. Vacation can be expensive, so a robust savings account is in order. University Credit Union offers a vacation savings account as a fixed-period account, which means our members establish the date when they’d like to have enough money to take a vacation, and we work with you to create a monthly or weekly contribution that will help you get to that amount of savings on schedule.
Being a savings account, it accrues interest that can help you have even a little bit of extra money as you depart for a break from work and other obligations.
A Great Way To Plan And Pay For A Big Vacation
According to Independent Traveler, going on a vacation often means lots of planning, plenty of spending, and a great deal of fun upon arrival. To make the process of planning and affording the vacation as easy as possible, a savings account might be in order for you. The benefits of a vacation savings account make it a great way to save quickly, pay off an upcoming trip, and ensure that there’s even a little money left over for dinner, a fun night out on the town, and any other excursions that might take place.
