Have you geared up for that all-important family vacation?

July 18, 2018

If your answer is that you don’t think you have the cash to take a trip this year, think again. Our credit union offers simple vacation loans that can help you get the money you need now for that memory-making trip.

To make the most of vacation savings, arm yourself with information.

Call travel agencies and local tourist associations, and visit your library to pick up some travel guides that may help you determine where you can save. Another great idea is to call the Chamber of Commerce for the city you’ll be visiting. They will often have special deals for meals, lodging, attraction tickets and more to entice you during your stay. Lastly, while you’re away, reconsider purchasing armloads of souvenirs for your friends and family. Most people would be just as happy to receive a scenic postcard (under one dollar, including postage) that tells them you remembered them. Save yourself effort and cash by passing on buying T-shirts, shot glasses, and snow globes to document your stay. And, bring your own camera. That way, you won’t have to spend extra money on disposables or on purchasing pricey professional photos at tourist attractions.


Whether you’re going to Disneyland, Hawaii, or just a short trip to the beach or mountains, a family vacation can be the once-a-year event that you all look forward to. Spend time together, make memories, relieve stress, and do it without creating a headache about finding the cash. Call the Taunton Federal Credit Union at (508) 824-6466,  and start planning for that much-needed summer vacation today.
