How to build your credit by traveling the world!

Updated: Feb 10

Sounds kinda misleading, right?

How can you build credit by traveling the world? I mean.... If it weren't for my love of traveling and bettering myself - I wouldn't even know about this method. But I've used it multiple times and each time my credit has benefited from it.

One day I was scrolling around online looking for a trip to book. It's something that I always do even if I'm not going anywhere. It just gives me something to look forward to, but this time I had the cash ready to spend and wanted to treat myself to something fun. Go somewhere exiting, lounge on a beach, sip on something sweet and let the sun do it's thing on my melanin. I was ready to go!

After looking on multiple sites for the best deal, I'd had enough. It was just too much searching, browsing and Googling for me. To help narrow down my search, I first had to decide on a location. Where did I want to go? That's always the hard part for me.

Once I decide on the where, I get into the how. Like how I now need to find flights and accommodations to get to my chosen location. But this is the easy part for me! One of the main sites I use to search for my vacations is Expedia. I enjoy the simplicity of the site and how it lets you filter your search results with features like "priced low to high", "star rating" and "customer reviews." It makes selecting the right vacation for all your needs super simple.

You can spend hours looking for the right hotel and then several more hours searching for flights, connecting flights, flights without layovers and so on... With Expedia- what would normally take hours, maybe even days or weeks to put together- is cut down significantly saving you both time and money.

You can use Expedia to book flights, cruises, rental cars, daycations and even excursions for once you get to where you're going. It's a one stop shop for all your travel needs.

Finally, the part about building credit and traveling!!

Instead of doing the old dreaded bullet point system to explain it, I made a quick video to show you exactly how it's done and how you can do it too.

In this video I'll show you the system I used to:

  1. build my credit

  2. travel the world

  3. leverage my credit

Building your credit is an important step to take if you're serious about wanting better things out of life. Better credit can help with things like getting approved for high end purchases such as a house or car. It can also determine whether or not you pay higher interest rates for those purchases.

If you have no credit history and are looking for an easy way to build some credit AND get definite perks like traveling the world, then this blog is for you!

Imagine being able to travel whenever you feel like it. Even better is when you know that vacation you've been paying for is actually building your credit for the future. What better way to live life than by traveling the world and having good credit! Yes please!

By using the system shown in the video, you can book your own trips, make payments and build your credit in the process.

Simply follow these steps when booking your next vacation. Don't forget to make your payments on time! You can even pay off your balance early with no penalties in order to save yourself some interest fees. This is one of the quickest ways to build your credit up fast, effectively and efficiently.

Give it a try and see how it works for you.

I wouldn't share or recommend anything that I've not successfully tried for myself. Results will likely vary depending on the severity of your credit. Always consult with a credit or financial advisor before using or applying for credit.
