Often when it comes to saving, it can be hard to add meaning to what you’re saving for.
If you have a spending goal that you’re saving towards then it can help, but once you spend the money when you’ve reached your goal you’re back to square one…no savings.
So of course you need to have different savings accounts for different goals – short, medium and long term.
The key is keeping these separate and not allowing yourself to ‘borrow’ for one account to fund another.
One of my favourite ways to spend money in my ‘short-term’ savings account is on plane tickets. Flying, for me at least, is a magical experience and I enjoy every second of it.
In 2012 I flew over 20 times and admit that plane tickets were where most of my money went last year!
As flying is so exciting to me, I loved hearing about the new Royal Brunei’s 787 Dreamliner from London Heathrow.
Earlier this month on Monday 2nd December 2013, Royal Brunei Airlines (RB), Brunei’s national carrier, launched a Betterfly service from London Heathrow as they officially commence the first London, Dubai, Brunei route on RB’s new Boeing 787 Dreamliner, powered by Rolls Royce Trent 1000 engines.
They are the first airline to offer a Dreamliner service from London to Dubai and on to Brunei. The addition of five modern Dreamliners to the fleet and an intention to be the first airline to offer a 100% Dreamliner service on long haul is a testament to their ambition to offer a truly personal and award winning service to all passengers.
Fares on Royal Brunei Airlines from London Heathrow start from £360 to Dubai, £695 to Brunei and £710 to Melbourne.
For me, a flight on the new Dreamliners is just the kind of thing that makes saving for the short, medium and long-term worthwhile!
