Today's global economy makes everything else more expensive. The two arguments make saving up for vacations more difficult. However, five savings hacks can help travelers get started in financing their dream vacation this 2017.

Once a hoarder of extremely valuable items rarely used? According to The Independent Traveler, travelers short on budget could sell that raffle-won Macbook or Samsung and liquidate it into a dedicated travel fund. Almost everyone has an item they rare use they could sell including furniture, musical instruments, or even knick-knacks that some collectors may be looking for and willing to pay top dollar for it.

Automatic transfer features for dedicated savings accounts are useful for travelers who do not trust themselves with saving money. These automatically take funds out of your main bank account every day, week or month. The amounts may seem small every week but they can add up to hundred dollars by the following year -- a great option for scheduled vacations.

Find a travel credit card that suits the travel. According to Nomadic Matt, travel credit cards with sign-up bonuses including mileage accounts and possible free flights are great to go with. Notable credit cards for saving up on vacations could be useful if travelers are frequent flyers.

People with a knack for organizing everything could always go with cost cutting on almost everything in the household and weekend spending. Travelers can always skip their online subscriptions they rarely check due to changing work schedules. A reminder when budgeting: only cut items one can live without, such as items in all aspects labelled as "wants." Food, utility bills, the Internet and existing loan repayments travelers should always fulfill.

Lastly, find someone to go with. It can be one's wife or husband with a separate financial budget, a friend or anybody who has an individual financial situation. Joining forces can make any vacation budget bigger and having friends along can make any trip priceless.
