Why you should spend your tax return on travel

Why you should spend your tax return on travel

As the bank balance starts looking at bit healthier around this time of the year, it’s a good time to think about how you are going to spend that extra little something from the government at tax refund time.

Now you could spend it on home improvements or bills, but you only live once, so why not spend it on memories that will last a lifetime.

Here are some reasons why you should spend your dollars on experience instead of things.

Time is precious

If you have a growing family, you will know the feeling of "It just felt like yesterday that they were babies and now they are…"

They do grow up so fast, so prioritising spending time with your family travelling and experiencing places is a great way to put your tax dollars to good use.

One thing that you are not going to get back is time, so spend it wisely.

Enrich your life through experience

They say that travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer.

Experience and seeing the world or even just exploring your own backyard can enrich your life in ways that you may not even think of now.

Add a deposit to your experience bank, and you will not be disappointed.


Taking the time to take time out of our busy lives is super important to our overall health and wellness and often the last thing we prioritise until we are burnt out.

Taking the time to rest and rejuvenate is essential for your health - mind, body and spirit.

Time for dreaming and to be creative

Getting away from the daily grind can do wonders for your creativity, soul and giving your brain time to dream, to plan and to experience new things.

And it is a great way to get a fresh perspective on life and all the deadline and things that we have going on day to day.

Giving yourself time away in a new place can help provide you with a perspective on what is important in life.
