Introducing: The AffordableTours.com Monthly Social Club

Greetings Travelers! I’d like to talk to you about a new program we’ve kicked off this month. April saw the launch of our brand new social media campaign dubbed the Monthly Social Club. Every month we pick a travel related theme and center all of our events and activities around that theme. To start, May is CRUISE month! Our Monthly Social Club is our three channel approach to spreading travel related information that we gather from you and everywhere around the internet. We want you to think of our Social Club as a little lunch date with you and your friends talking about your next destination or other industry news – all without the hassle of leaving the comfort of your own home! As an extra bonus, we’re giving away free prizes every month just for participating! Anyone can join in and contribute. Learn more about our events below.

2. Just like when you were a kid, a simple way to save is by having a change jar. Every day throw the change in your pocket into a jar, also get your kids involved they will get excited about saving for the vacation and start looking for change everywhere. Every few months take it to the bank then transfer the savings into your vacation fund.
