If you’re on a budget, traveling on vacation may seem like a fantasy even farther off than the vacation destination itself.  It might even feel that it would just be easier to stay home and plan a stay-cation.

But what would life be without a little travel in it? No matter if it’s a trip to Florida’s famed Gulf Coast or something more far flung such as a trip to New Zealand and Australia, traveling on vacation is part of what makes life worth living.

United Vacations offers exciting vacation packages throughout the world, with such close-to-home destinations as Las Vegas, Orlando (including a host of packages to Universal Studios and Walt Disney World), New York City and Los Angeles. Looking to put that passport to use? Why not book a trip-of-a-lifetime to destinations throughout Asia, the Caribbean, the Middle East, South and Central America, Europe, Mexico, Canada and Australia?

Now, United Vacations means taking your next vacation trip is easier (and more affordable) than ever. Put as little as $200 down and you are well on your way to lift off thanks to United Vacations’ flexible payment plan. What’s more, travelers who purchase the Premier Vacation Protection plan can take advantage of even lower deposit rates. With this plan, travelers can cancel or change their vacation at any time without fees, as well as be assured of United Vacations’ lowest price guarantee on select vacations. If the price of hotel drops after making a reservation, United will adjust the reservation to reflect the lowest price (valid on trips from the United States to Mexico, Caribbean, Hawaii and Central America).

The Premier Vacation Protection plan also includes trip insurance that covers travel interruption, travel delay, emergency evacuation, medical expenses and reimbursement relating to baggage loss or delay.

With United Vacations, not only can you make multiple payments over time but you can pay using different credit cards. The actual deposit amount varies depending on the destination and hotel accommodations selected. For example, vacationers traveling outside of the United States must pay a $300 deposit.  The flexible payment option applies to vacations booked more than six weeks in advance and the option to select appears at the third stage of checkout.

Travelers opting for the budget plan can schedule automatic final payments or even email reminders. Email reminders serve as a handy notification as to when your next payment is due, something that’s especially helpful when making a series of payments or paying by various credit cards. Final payments are due no later than 45 days before departure so it’s well advised to schedule an automatic final payment.

Thanks to United Vacations’ easy budget plan, traveling the world is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
