Travel Tip: Apps That Can Help You Budget & Save Money On the Road

It’s hard enough to stay on a budget at home.

When you’re traveling it’s even more difficult—but not impossible.

Whether you’re going to Cleveland or Cairo, there are now some apps that can help you manage your money on the road.

But it’s not just what you spend—it’s what you can save.

Acorns is an app that automatically rounds up to the next dollar the cost of every non-cash purchase you make.

What happens to those extra pennies? It deposits them into a separate account.

Stash is an app that automatically saves money for you in pre-arranged increments.

The fun thing Stash does is predict long-term balances based on your savings habits.

When you’re traveling, an app called Digit monitors your bank balances, and following guidelines that you set, transfers a small sum into your savings account each day based on your spending habits.

It’s a better way to budget your money, stay on top of what you have, what you don’t have, and what you may have—if you’re smart.
