How Do You Protect Your Budget and Your Identity While on Summer Vacation?
Summertime means beaches, barbecues and vacations. But hopefully it doesn’t mean credit card fraud or debt. Unfortunately, many people fall victim to these two issues, especially while on vacation. You leave your troubles behind and end up racking up way more with over-spending and lack of identity protection. According to a recent survey conducted by Experian, people spend 68 percent more than they expect while traveling or vacationing and utilize their credit cards to pay for things they didn’t budget for. This leaves 52 percent of people surveyed strapped with credit card debt when they return home.
