3 Scenarios That Prove You Might Be Travel Rich
By DeAnna Taylor
Travel is the new wave. Especially among Black millennials. Our generation has consistently proven that we prefer experiences over things.
But, when it comes to funding these experiences, do you splurge or do you seek out deals to save your coins for future things?
Check out these 3 ways to test if you are what some would call “travel rich.” Disclaimer, this is all in fun.
You can’t fly economy for long flights
Flight deals are everywhere and they pop up for almost any destination. But, the only downside to these low priced flights, is that nine times out of ten you’re going to have to fly economy or basic economy.
If you are someone who is “travel rich” you will skip the deal and pay full price to ensure that you fly in comfort. While the economy class can be a bit cramped on international flights, it’s not the worst thing in the world. However, some people just aren’t satisfied with that. They need to be able to fully stretch out in their own pod and served the finest of meals.
If that’s you, you might be travel rich.
You only fly direct
Again, this is something that occurs a lot of the time with flight deals and sales. But, depending on where you live it’s also kind of hard not to have a layover. Some travelers will spend the extra coins to ensure that they get directly to their destination without the hassle of stopping somewhere in between.
Of course, the farther you are going, the more you will have to spend to do so. If that’s you, yea you’re definitely travel rich.
You always check a bag
As the years have passed, checked bag fees seem to only increase. Many airlines introduced basic fares for those who want to save money, but have also mastered the art of packing light.
Some travelers just can’t seem to get with the whole carry-on only lifestyle. They need to have clothing options, point blank period. After all, your travel photos won’t be lit if you don’t have the right fit.
If you are that traveler that doesn’t mind spending $30-$50 on a checked bag, you just might be travel rich.
If any of these scenarios apply to you, congrats, you got money! We just ask that you let us get a dollar or two.
