Five Cost-Saving Tips to Stretch Travel Budgets
According to a survey conducted by the Iowa Credit Union League, less than half of Iowans surveyed (32.2%) plan to take a summer vacation. Of the 936 respondents, 9.8% plan to take more vacations than they did in 2012 and 9.6% indicated they will take a longer vacation.
A USA TODAY/Gallup Poll found that nearly three quarters of Americans plan to vacation at least 100 miles from home, an almost 15% increase since 2012. In Iowa, 8.9% of Iowans surveyed said that they planned to travel further than they did in 2012.

- 27% of workers said they had less than $1,000 in savings
Where most of the workers surveyed said emergency and unforeseen expenses were the reasons they hadn’t saved more, some said it was just a lack of a savings plan or a thorough budget.
