How to save money by putting your life on pause before heading overseas. One of the easiest ways to save money while traveling is to pause your monthly subscriptions and memberships, such as streaming TV services or a gym membership. You don't have to cancel. You can usually just call them and ask them to put it on pause for a month. This is basically money right back in your pocket. Next call the post office and ask them to hold your mail. If you're subscribed to newspapers or magazines, ask them to pause your subscription. Even more important, call your bank and your credit card company and let them know the dates that you're going to be traveling overseas. If you don't, they might assume that your cards have been stolen or your accounts hacked, and they might freeze all your accounts, leaving you halfway around the world and unable to pay for your hotel room or even dinner.Tip to cutoff your Calling bills
This is a major inconvenience, but it's one that's easily avoided. Next, make sure your phone is ready to travel. Some companies offer plans that work globally. But if not, turn off your roaming and put your phone into airplane mode. It allows you to connect to Wi-Fi and to use bluetooth, but doesn't roam or search for a signal and cost you precious data. And of course, you can always buy a cheap local SIM card when you arrive in your destination. Just make sure that your phone is unlocked before you leave the country.

It's also smart to set your indoor lights on a timer, so it looks like someone's home in the evenings.

If you can clean it before you go and you can come home to clean sheets, you are going to be so much more comfortable and ready to assimilate back into the real world.
