However, travelling isn’t cheap and not everyone has the means to make it to their favourite holiday destination. Presenting, a solution to everyone’s travel problems: the Holiday Savings Account.
If you haven’t heard of this amazing product, read on and find out all you need to know about it:
What is the Holiday Savings Account?
Holiday Savings Account is Thomas Cook’s way of providing you with your dream vacation. This is done by opening a savings account with either ICICI Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank, IndusInd Bank or State Bank of India. Once the account is opened, you save up for the vacation by depositing a pre-fixed amount over 12 months leading to the vacation. The 12 installments along with a 13th top-up from Thomas Cook will sum up to form your vacation’s cost.
How is the Holiday Savings Account better than EMI?
- The Holiday Savings Account allows you to earn interest over the 12 months that you pay the installments while for an EMI you end up paying interest over and above
- This enables you to save up for your holiday before taking it, while an EMI would have you take the trip and then pay for it later over time
- This is also inflation-proof that lets you travel next year at this year’s price
- It is an investment for your holiday, while an EMI is taken on a loan for a vacation
Which places can you visit with the Holiday Savings Account?
By opening a Holiday Savings Account, you open up the possibilities to pick from the six fantastic international packages and eight great domestic packages.
You can go to international destinations such as Europe, Singapore, Dubai and domestic destinations such as Andaman, Kashmir, Bhutan and so on.
