Budgeting: money saving tips for cabin crew


When it comes to budgeting, it can be tricky for Cabin Crew as they rarely stay in one place, flying all over the world keeping passengers safe on their journeys.

The temptation of shopping is very high with the opportunity to explore different parts of the world and the things they have to offer. 

Here are some budgeting tips for Cabin Crew that you may find handy:

Plan your budget: Build up a map with the expenses you can’t avoid and add an extra amount to other things you would like to do, like visit museums, shopping, going to that nice restaurant etc. You will have a clear idea of how much money you are going to need for that period.

Leave your credit and debit card at home: Take cash with you wherever you go, make sure you have enough to cover what you need. This way you will avoid extra costs with things you haven’t planned.

Share the responsibility: If you live with a roommate, make sure you’re both talking about budgeting. Sharing the responsibility is the better option for you both to help you save some money.

Keep your receipts. By keeping your receipts, you will be able to keep track of the money you have spent, and control your regular expenses more effectively.

Have some flexibility. It’s good to plan, but it doesn’t mean you have to give something up.. If you spend more than you planned in one week you can compensate the following week.
