Big plans this summer? Here are five tips that will help you have a fun and budget-friendly trip!
Have a budget in mind – and stick with it! Calculate how much you plan on spending each day of your vacation, and be frugal when necessary. A great way to save is to pack snacks and other non-perishable foods like chips, crackers, and granola bars!
Visit a National or State park. Sure, there’s an admission fee…but once you’re in the gate, you have access to a number of trails, ranger talks, presentations, and wildlife viewing opportunities.

Sweet-talk your way to savings. When you find the right hotel – be sure to ask for an upgrade! Studies show that the majority of hotel guests who request an upgrade at the front desk actually get one. However, it’s important to always be polite with your request, and tip whenever necessary!
Tell us about it! Before you leave on your adventure, be sure to tell a SeaComm representative where you will be going, when you will be traveling, the cards you plan to use, and other destination details. This will help us to safeguard your accounts so you don’t temporarily lose access to needed funds. Frequent out-of-state charges are often tagged as fraudulent and will lead to holds being put on your credit or debit card. Simply give SeaComm a call at 800-764-0566, and let us know about your trip – we’ll take care of the rest!
