Going for a vacation is a terrible idea when you're in debt. Look for cheap travel plans if you really need to.

Look i'm in quite a bit of debt and i know taking a vacation at this point isn't such a great idea. But there's this aunt i absolutely must visit this christmas so was wondering what'd be the right way to go...

Credit cards are always there to help you, but if you aren't careful you just might be left with debt right after Christmas. So I believe credit cards shouldn't be used just like that. Rather planning out trips and visits should be done based on the cash you can spare.

Yes well guess you're absolutely right about the debt thing. But the problem arises because this aunt just might not listen. Okay so what if I use my credit cards to fund this trip, I wouldnt really have to bother about payments until later after all. If aunt listens it'd be different of course. Thanks

I second Abbie on this and I'd just like to add that you shouldn't make the mistake of keeping your debts forever. The idea remains to pay off your debts and that too as soon as possible. Be honest with your near and dear ones about your financial situation and surely they'd understand.

Seems the Christmas spirit has set in for good. Wish you a Merry Christmas! Well, getting down to the facts then it's always a concern that the sooner you get rid of your debt, the better it gets. Now it really depends on where your aunt stays and how cheap could you possibly travel. If the entire venture is going to make you incur further debt, then it's definitely not a good idea. On the other hand, if you manage to convince this aunt about your indisposition, then perhaps you could save yourself from incurring extra costs.
