Family vacation help? Is it really possible to take your family on a remarkable, unforgettable vacation without putting your finances in turmoil? You won't believe the answer.

If there was ever a time your family's life where you all needed a vacation...this may be it. Not only do you have the pressures of being a mom or dad, but also the pressure from holding down a job or two. Add to the fact that you may be dealing with a boss you don't like.

Don't forget your kids have pressure too! From dealing with peer-pressure and the need to belong, to dealing with the hormonal changes they will have to go through if they're not already. Add to the mix the need to perform well on tests and make you proud of them. It's a heavy load to take on as a kid.

Which is why you and your family need to take time away from the "mean streets" of life. But the question remains as to how exactly to get the family vacation help you need so your dream vacation can become a reality.

Let's start with these three things:

 1. Do a family budget. If you don't have a budget by now, you should really do one right now. This will allow you to see where  you "stand" financially as a family. Although a vacation is a luxury, it is at times one of those much needed luxuries!  However, you don't want to add on extra debt to you family's load if it doesn't fit within your budget.

 2. Do you have disposable income? Now that you've done your budget, you will see what and if you have any money available that you can set aside for your family vacation. If you don't then you'll have to find more ways to cut your expenses and/or find a way to pick up some more hours at work or find a side job.

See what things you can cut so you can have money for your vacation. Can you cut down on your cell phone bill? Can you get less Cable or Satelite channels to reduce your monthly bill?

It can be done. Get your whole family working together on this one. Your family will appreciate the vacation more when they all have to work together in order to make it happen.

 3. Be travel smart. Find a way to save on one the biggest expenses of a vacation...the accommodations. Don't do what a lot of other people do...(and later regret) and that's go running towards timeshares. In this unstable economy and bad real estate market it would be like committing slow financial suicide.

And even in the best of times timeshares wouldn't necessarily be a viable solution...especially when you have more cost-efficient travel clubs available. Some travel clubs are a fraction of the cost of a timeshare without the extra mountain load of debt timeshares are known for. Which is why we love travel clubs. We recommend this one.

If you can imagine strolling hand-in-hand with your loved one on a white sandy beach, or skiing on the snowy-white slopes of Aspen, or seeing the laughter on your children's faces as they splash down from a enormous water slide...then you have the capacity to make it a reality for your family.

The best family vacation help will come from you. And the first step is seeing what you can afford and then choosing the best travel club that's within your means. And it's all uphill from there.

Happy travels!
