Christmas is all about making plans, shopping, decorating the home and enjoying with family and friends.

But why don't you make a travel plan with your dear ones to enjoy the togetherness in a different way?

Some people love to enjoy Christmas in a traditional way, while some people think traveling on Christmas is expensive.

However, some people feel that planning a gateway is fun and it saves money too.

Here's how:

1. Travel allows a break from cleaning, cooking, and cleaning cycle

Get ready for cleaning the house, setting up chairs, inviting family and friends, labeling the gifts, decorating and so on.

The list doesn't end here, you need to spend maximum time in the kitchen preparing food for the invitees.

Then you'll have to clean up the trash even after they leave.

Moral of the story is you're doing a lot of work during the holidays.

On the other hand, a family gathering out of the home for 2-3 days allow you to enjoy holidays with the dear ones without worrying much.

You don't have to worry about gifts, decoration supplies, a mouth-watering menu, a tidy house for accommodation, and finally storing leftovers.

2. Planning with everyone to meet at a location

Your family members might be in other states, your children are off to college somewhere, or your husband may travel a lot for work. All the members hardly get time to plan for a trip.

Traveling in Christmas can be an exciting twist that you can try to make this Christmas memorable forever.

3. Christmas celebration at home is cheaper - A myth

Enjoying Christmas at home saves money; this concept is not true. Don't forget that household costs (water, groceries, and electricity) will add up.

If you take an all-inclusive vacation, you can save money on water bill, food, electric bills, laundry, etc.

Make sure you turn down the thermostat and enable timers on lights to save money on electric bills.

4. Saying "bye" to the gift-exchanging custom

Try to convince your Christmas fanatic family members to contribute money for a trip instead of wasting money on costly gifts, dresses, and makeup.

Convey to your dear ones that you all are skipping gift-giving tradition and considering a trip instead this year.

Thus, you can enjoy a stress-free Christmas togetherness without wasting money and your precious time planning for a party.

5. Airfare is no longer sky high

The costs of air tickets are now affordable depending on the place you're heading. You may get $125 for booking your seat.

You may get reduced price on your last minute deals online, reward points, and so on.

Imagine how much money you'll save instead of planning a party or buying gifts.

6. No post-Christmas financial hangover

Planning a party, deciding the menu, decorating the home, buying perfect party outfits for all members, and gifting are more than enough to break a budget.

Most of the people fail to manage the budget and start swiping credit cards to meet the holiday expenses.

As a result, they fall in Christmas debt and get overwhelmed with financial stress and anxiety.

A well-planned trip is a fun and relaxing way to rejuvenate the energy without fearing about financial issues.

You're enjoying a vacation with your full family in a beautiful place, eating different cuisines, and meeting new people. Sounds great!

7. Avoid gaining some extra pounds

Cooking extra, overeating delicious foods, munching cookies, and gulping chocolates are all part of Christmas enjoyment. Moreover, you have to refrigerate the leftovers and consume them to avoid massive waste. The result is heartbreaking- a layer of fat holding your stomach!

Traveling to a new place allows you to avoid those fattening sweets and scaring fat; you can enjoy the weather, food, and hiking to stay fit and energetic.

Finally, thinking out of the box doesn't mean you're not a family oriented person. Rather, you must convince your family members to skip one Christmas to bring the special holiday feeling back.

Sometimes, repeating the same thing makes us bored; the event loses its charm as well.

So, taking a pass on Christmas and traveling instead is an exclusive idea you'll cherish forever.
