Save Your Coins During Quarantine By Putting These 5 Travel Subscriptions On Hold
Since we’re not traveling right now, it’s a good time to put a hold on apps we’re paying for to save money.
A lot of travel apps and services charge a monthly fee and if you’re not utilizing it at the moment, why not cancel?
Here are 5 travel subscriptions you should put on hold or cancel until this pandemic is over.
Uber, Lyft, And Other Ride-Hailing Subscriptions
You may have used Uber and Lyft in your everyday life, but now that we are staying inside, there isn’t much need for it. Many people use the monthly subscriptions that these ride-hailing apps offer such as Uber Ride Pass ($25 per month) and Lyft Pink ($20 per month).
You can put these services on hold and avoid spending an extra $20 – $25 per month on a service you won’t be using.
If you’re an avid traveler, you may have a secondary phone subscription like Google Fi which helps you save money while staying in touch abroad.
Putting this service on hold is super easy and you can do it straight off your app or online.
CLEAR is great for making your way through airport security quickly. However, it’s not worth the payment now.
Although CLEAR charges a yearly fee, if your membership is about to expire in the coming month, you may be able to ask them for a three-month extension before canceling.
Mobile Passport App
The Mobile Passport app allows U.S. citizens and Canadian visitors to save time during the entry process at over 30+ U.S. Customs and Border Protection ports by allowing you to submit your passport and customs declaration form securely through the app. It’s become an asset to those who frequently travel internationally, however, to unlock some of the premium features, there’s a $14.99/year or $4.99/month fee.
Since most won’t be traveling abroad anytime soon, don’t forget to deactivate the reoccurring monthly fee.
Many avid travelers purchase an inflight internet subscription to stay connected while on long flights. Luckily, you can cancel this service or put it on hold since you won’t be using it right now.
