Would it help you cope with the cost of Christmas if you didn’t have to pay rent for a fortnight over the festive season?
Did you know you can pay a bit extra on your rent each week so that you can build up enough savings to give yourself a rent holiday at Christmas time and use the money on other things?
Here’s how it works.
Your weekly rent = $177
Your weekly utilities charge = $14
Savings goal to have Christmas fortnight off = (177 + 14) x 2 = $382
Christmas is currently 14 weeks away, so $382 divided by 14 = $27.29
You can pay an extra $27.50 per week between now and Christmas to enjoy a rent-free fortnight.
If you’d like to do this, here’s what you need to do:
We’re also happy to help you prepay your rent if you’re going away at other times of the year as well.
