An amazing holiday can change your life. Perhaps there’s a part of the world you long to see? Do you have distant family you’d love to reconnect with? Or maybe just a few weeks of sunshine would renew and rejuvenate?
Holidays and travel rarely come cheap though – and saving for such luxuries often has to come second to life’s necessities, leaving you looking at the same four walls, even after lots of hard work.
Equity release means that taking that dream holiday doesn’t have to be last on the to-do list anymore – you can release the funds to make your lifestyle and dream holiday a priority.
Linda’s dream family holiday
Linda released the equity from her home last year to make her holiday dreams come true.
“My family were growing up so quickly, I love spending time with them but they’re all so busy, it’s hard to get them in the same room together!”
“I talked to my son and daughter about using some of the money I could release to book a holiday for us all. With young families there was no way they could afford it, but I knew the time we had together would be really special, so I got some advice on plans that might suit me.”
Linda talked at length with an expert advisor who explained the options she had available, she wanted to release some money but make sure she could still leave something for her family further down the line.
“They were so helpful, no pressure, just facts that I could take away and think about.”
Later in the year, Linda and her family took a holiday to Greece for two weeks.
“It really was like a dream come true. Beautiful weather and all my most important people around me. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done and would recommend it to anyone else in a heartbeat.”
