The latest Government roadmap for ending lockdown has given us all a much-needed glimmer of hope that we will be able to enjoy a holiday again soon. So why not open a holiday savings account with the Credit Union and start planning your getaway?
It has been a tough year for everyone, so it is nice to have something to look forward to and, now we know lockdown could be over by the summer, it seems like the perfect time to start saving for a holiday.
The cost of holidays can really mount up of course, especially for families, so it can be hard to put your hands on the cash you need when you need it. That’s where the Credit Union can help.
With one of our holiday savings accounts, you can put away a little bit each month. This means that you can plan how much you would like to spend on your holiday, within what you can afford, and then save enough each month to cover the costs.
With a holiday savings account, you only withdraw the money when you need to pay for your holiday, whereas if the money is in with your other savings, or in your current account, you are more likely to spend it on other things.
You can save by standing order or direct debit directly from your bank account and employees of the many organisations that participate in our Salary Savings Scheme can have savings deducted directly from their salary.
Credit Union Chief Executive Martin Groombridge said: “It’s great that we can all start to look forward to the end of lockdown and hopefully the vaccines will soon mean we can travel again.
“While it may be a while before we can set off round the world, hopefully it won’t be too long before we can at least enjoy a holiday in our own country. It is never too soon to start planning and saving, so why not think about opening one of our holiday savings accounts?”
