We are nomads, and our blood is filled with the love of travel. We have found a way to see the world that doesn't break the bank. We use our RV travel expenses to fund our vacation stays. Yes, we still vacation even though we are Nomads.
Today we're sharing our method so you can use it too!
We recently enjoyed the sunny beaches of Aruba without spending a penny on airfare.
Here's how you can do it too:
- Use a travel credit card that offers points or miles for every dollar you spend. We recommend the Southwest Rapid Rewards® Credit Card, which gives you 2 points per dollar spent on Southwest Airlines flights and 2 points per dollar spent on gas stations and on car rentals booked directly with the rental company.
- Use your credit card for all of your RV travel expenses, including gas, food, campground fees, and souvenirs.
- Pay off your credit card balance in full each month to avoid interest charges.
By following these steps, you can earn a lot of points or miles that you can use to cover the cost of your air travel and hotel stays. For example, if you spend $5,000 on RV travel expenses in a year, you will earn 10,000 points with the Southwest Rapid Rewards® Credit Card. That's enough points for two round-trip flights between most major US cities. Most will spend more than that in a years time.
Of course, you don't have to use your points or miles for air travel. You can also use them for hotels, car rentals, cruises, and other travel expenses. But if you're looking to finance your air travel, this is a great way to do it.
With a little planning, you can use your RV trips to finance your air travel and save money on your next vacation.
Note: We will receive Southwest Rapid Rewards points as compensation if you apply for and are approved for a Southwest Rapid Rewards® Credit Card through the link in this post. We were not approached by Southwest or Chase Bank to create this post, but we thought it would be a great way to help our readers save money and travel more.
