SHRINK­ING TRAVEL BUD­GETS ARE CAUSE FOR CON­CERN

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - - YOURSPACE -

If the ru­pee con­tin­ues its slide, par­ents will have to think thrice about send­ing their kids for fur­ther stud­ies abroad. Fat­ter loans will have to be taken. The ru­pee must be sta­bilised at some point, for the sake of our kids’ fu­ture.

Al­ready, I am think­ing about us­ing dif­fer­ent schemes that shop­ping por­tals have dur­ing fes­ti­vals, to cut down on costs; I’m also con­sid­er­ing or­der­ing items in bulk.

Travel plans will now have to be­gin far in ad­vance, in or­der to keep to a bud­get. Min­imis­ing the days of travel and choos­ing closer des­ti­na­tions will of­fer re­lief too.
