If you want to achieve a smooth, carefree trip, taking care of essential tasks is key. Here are six smart things you should do before your upcoming travel plans.
Pay all your bills. Before heading out on your trip, make sure all of your monthly bills are paid. You don’t want to be busy paying bills when you’re sunning yourself on the beach or take a chance of getting hit with late fees. You can help streamline your payments by putting your bills on auto pay! This is a guaranteed way to ensure that you never miss your due dates. When the direct deposit hits your account, the payments will automatically transfer to your loans. Click here to learn more about SeaComm’s Free Bill Payment Service!
Unplug your electronics. Don’t pay energy costs for electronics you’re not using while you’re away. Make sure to pull the plug on all small appliances and electronics before you leave.
Adjust your thermostats. If you have the AC blasting, you will want to adjust your thermostat before leaving. Turning it off completely is not a good idea, because you will want some air to circulate for keeping the humidity under control. Instead, turn it a few degrees higher than you usually keep it.
