Families eager to enjoy some fun in the sun are turning their attention to spring getaways. According to a recent Bank of America survey, nearly half of Americans say the most difficult part of planning a trip is sticking to a budget.

But don’t go over budget or put your dream vacation on the back burner without exploring alternative methods for funding your journey, says travel expert and Travel Channel host, Samantha Brown.

“When you start researching vacation destinations, it’s important to keep in mind that a credit card with a good rewards program can help offset travel costs,” says Brown.

For example, the BankAmericard Travel Rewards credit card offers 1.5 points for every dollar spent that can be used to pay for flights, hotels, vacation packages, cruises, rental cars, baggage fees, theme park tickets and travel upgrades.

According to the same survey, 77 percent of American families will use credit cards for vacation planning and shopping this spring. If you’re among them, let your spending help you offset your costs.
