There’s nothing quite like the feeling of traveling abroad, but what about those days when your bank balance won’t permit a lengthy journey? The answer may lie in a “staycation”, a ridiculous word with a great concept. By budgeting correctly and making smart financial decisions, you too can embark on a staycation and have a fantastic travel experience in your own hometown for a negligible amount of money.
