Following are some tips from WorldRemit that you might find helpful on saving for relocation:

  1. Plan ahead for your relocation by putting your savings together. Set up a savings account- you can set up a savings account on the VESTI app. In addition to saving for food and accommodation, you will be saving for other expenses as well. Leaving your home country to study in the US is not cheap, which means you will need to put money aside for tuition fees and other expenses that may run up.
  2. According to WorldRemit, one of the tips for relocating abroad is to take your money online. Online financial services offer the opportunity to manage your money efficiently and cost effectively wherever you are in the world.
  3. The cost of calling your bank from overseas will certainly be high, so there is no need to endure that hassle. Consider low-risk vehicles for saving your money. Savings vehicles enable you to access your money immediately and carry out transactions quickly and easily.
  4. When transferring money from one currency to another, it is advisable to look for the best exchange rate. It is advisable to choose services or platforms with low exchange rates to save some money.
  5. Make sure to pay off your debts as much as you can when you relocate abroad to study. Keeping up with expenses in your new country and paying off debt from another country is not desirable.
  6. Also note that, saving your money in low-risk savings vehicles makes transactions and payments easier to accomplish.  VESTI has got a user-friendly functionality for saving your money and it also gives you round the clock accessibility.
