TUCSON (KGUN9-TV)-- It may be too late to grab your dream travel this summer, but if seeing the world is a priority, you can find ways to make that happen next year. Financial experts says you should first set up a travel fund. Put money in there, in stead of eating out or buying things you don't need.
You can also set up an automatic transfer from you savings account to pay for the trip.Try a goal of five-percent of your paycheck. When you plan a trip, look for countries where the American dollar is strong against local currency.  And you might want to consider roughing it a bit. Backpacking trips are one way to see the world without spending a fortune.
