GoalSaver: Holiday planner

Suitcase and currencyAre you planning a well-deserved Summer holiday? Maybe a Winter break or a luxury Weekend away?

This special Holiday Planner edition of our GoalSaver tool will help you plan for that holiday you've always wanted by working out exactly how much it will all cost, so you can start saving now.

Use the sliders below to set the amount you expect to spend on each item. If you won't be spending any money on something you can always set it to zero.

TIP: Make sure you don't count anything twice - if you'll be getting £500 of currency but paying for all your drinks from that money, then you can set the 'Drinks' slider to zero, and if your package is 'all inclusive' there may be several things you won't need to pay for.

You can even add your own items if we've left something off the list that you're going to need for your dream vacation.

Can you afford it all?

If your holiday works out too expensive and you won't have saved up enough money in time, consider spending less or cutting back on non-essential items. If you really need to borrow some money to make it happen, then make sure you choose the cheapest option – see Deciding on the best type of credit.
