Quick Tip - Traveling Off-Season
Hotels at many destinations have two sets of prices: low season and high season. For example, the Caribbean Islands are popular in the winter, but much more affordable in the summer, and Disneyworld is most expensive during school vacation time and most reasonable right around Labor Day. Weekends can also be more expensive at many destinations, so schedule your trip during the week if possible. The point of this Pointer: Pick an off-season destination to make your vacation dollars go further.

If I am able to pay in full one of my creditors on the plan, do I pay directly to the creditor; and, if so, how do I get the creditor removed from the program once paid? I would like to keep the payment the same and have it applied to the other creditors.
