When traveling on assignment, budgeting can be quite tricky. Medical Staffing Solutions, A TotalMed Company is here to give you a few budgeting tips the next time you travel!
1. Create a Travel Budget
This is really helpful to keep you on track. If you want to expand your travel assignment, you are going to need to spend less (in your every day life AND while traveling). A lot of people will buy all the meals and drinks and do all the activities. Come up with a certain budget for your time there and stick to it. That way you can continue to take on more assignments.
2. Find Free Accommodations
- Agency housing: At MSS, you will be provided with free, private, furnished housing on every company-paid travel assignment, no matter where you travel. Speak to your recruiter for further details!
- Stay with a friend, or a friend of a friend: This is always a fun one. The world is a very small place. I guarantee if you put on Facebook “hey, going to be in Spain, anyone have a friend there that I could potentially stay with?” you’d absolutely get at least one hit. Take advantage of your connections, but of course, do something nice for them if they are doing you a favor too!
3. Avoid Going Shopping
4. Cook at Home
