These Qapital Travel Tips Will Save You Time and Money

Qapital helped thousands of users travel to amazing places last year! The money management tools you have come to know and love for smart saving and spending in your everyday life can help you achieve the same control and freedom when you take off on an adventure.

Whether it’s a solo hiking trip halfway across the world, a romantic getaway in a foreign city with your beau, or a road trip upstate to your aunt’s farm with the whole family… Qapital app has got your back.   

Here are some handy tips to help make your next vacation a success.

1. Pack your Qapital Visa® Debit Card.


No matter where you choose to go, make sure you bring your Qapital Visa® Debit Card* with you. We charge ZERO foreign transaction fees* for using your Qapital Visa® Debit Card abroad.

And you can use your Qapital Visa® Debit Card’s Weekly Spending Target tool to stay on budget. Just adjust your target amount to fit your travel budget and the Qapital app will automatically track what you spend on your Qapital Visa® Debit Card. We’ll send you routine notifications so you know exactly how much you’ve spent and how much you have left to spend at anytime with the swipe of your finger. (You can even exclude purchases unrelated to your budget!)

Built-in fraud monitoring keeps your chip-enabled debit card safe 24/7. And if you think your card may be lost or stolen, you can remote lock it at any time within the app.

2. Set up a Goal for yourself with an image that excites you. You’ll be twice as likely to reach it!

1 - Road Trip

Numerous research studies have shown that visualizing a goal increases your likelihood of achieving it. That’s why we let you choose your own Goal photos to remind yourself exactly what you’re saving for and why. It’s so much easier to save when you are looking at an image of something that matters to you — like a snapshot of that villa on the Amalfi coast you want to visit again — rather than a number on a screen.

Stay excited. Stay motivated. Stay on course.

3. Set up Shared Goals with your travel buddies and reach your destination even faster.


Not the solo-journey type? Love to travel with family and friends? Then a Qapital Shared Goal is exactly what you need to plan your next trip.

With Shared Goals you can set a Savings Goal with other Qapital users, choose your individual and/or collective Rules for saving, and watch your money pot grow. You can even chat with the other members of your Shared Goals right in the app!

Set a Shared Goal with…

  • your sister for a trip home to surprise your parents for their anniversary.
  • the other bridesmaids for the Vegas bachelorette party you’re planning.
  • your partner for that romantic weekend getaway to Paris you’ve always talked about.
  • your old classmates for a reunion canoe trip down the Delaware River.
  • your roommate for that hardcore hiking trip to Machu Picchu you’ve been dreaming about.

The possibilities are endless.

4. Go somewhere amazing. Go somewhere unforgettable.
