25 travel-themed piggy banks for travelers

Large budget piggy banks for travelers

#1 Suitcase-shaped piggy bank

This might be one of the most expensive travel-themed piggy banks on this list. But you have to admit, it’s also one of the coolest.

Basically, it contains all the things travelers love, a suitcase, a world map, and the quote “save, travel, repeat”.

#2 Swear piggy bank

This is probably one of the best piggy banks for travelers who swear a lot.

If you have to fill the jar for each time you f*cking swear, you will have collected enough money for your next trip in no time!

And perhaps a bonus of this piggy bank is the fact that it might make you more aware of just how much you swear. And maybe that realization alone will make you swear less. Or not, which means you will save more money for traveling.


#3 Stainless steel piggy bank

Are you someone who is often guilty of prematurely taking out money from your travel fund for other purposes?

Then this is one of the best travel-themed piggy banks for you!

A stainless steel box, from which you can only take out money if you completely break it open. That will help you to think twice before spending your travel money on other things!


#4 Piggy bank with custom photo

You can add any photo you want to this cute suitcase-shaped piggy bank. Maybe a photo of your last holiday to motivate you to save more for your next holiday. Or maybe a photo of you and your lover, if you are saving for a world trip together.

Or basically, any photo you want.

Oh, one thing that’s probably good to know, you only need to remove the back frame if you want to take your saved money out.


#5 Money box with world map

Anything with a map is great for travelers. And that is why this money box with the map of the world in the background is perfect.

The map is also a good reminder of why you are saving this money. To see all the countries on the map you have yet to discover, will surely motivate you to set aside some money.

There is also an option to personalize the money box for a small fee.


#6 New York money jar

New York money jar
New York Jar

This is by far the best money jar for travelers who want to visit New York; the New York Fund!

It’s made from ceramics and comes with a ceramic lid that can easily be removed to take out your money.


#7 Wooden travel-themed piggy bank for couples

Money box with text "our adventure fund"
Our adventure fund

Would you like a piggy bank to start saving for the next adventure with your lover?

Then this is an awesome box for you!

I have also shared it as one of the cool gift ideas for newlyweds, or for couples who travel together.

You can easily access your money by removing the back of the box. So you don’t need to break the box in order to get your money (as with traditional piggy banks). And there is no hassle with a small hole at the bottom.

Though, this could also mean that you take out money for other causes. But as a travel lover, what other causes could you possibly spend money on?

Anyway, if you prefer a different design for your couple’s travel fund, check out the next option.


#8 White piggy bank for couples

This is another great travel-themed piggy bank for couples. This time it’s a cute romantic white wooden box.

Again, you can simply remove the back of the box to retrieve your money.


#9 Squared travel fund

This squared travel fund is a cool piggy bank for travelers. The “large” box only measures 6 x 6 x 6 inches (6 inches is about 15,2 cm, for people who use the metric system).

There is a small hole at the bottom to empty it out, though it is really small, so you might struggle if you want to completely empty it.

But I guess, that’s actually a good thing. It just makes it harder to use the money for anything other than your final goal.


#10 Personalized money jar

Personalized gifts are my favorites. And even though this money jar might not be a gift in your case, isn’t cool to have a jar that is specifically designed for you and your money goal?

I would say it is, and if you agree, check out this personalized vacation fund from Personalization Mall.

#11 Safari-themed money jar

This is one of the best money jars for travelers who love safaris.

So are you saving for your next safari to see the big five? Or any other animal?

Then this jar with giraffes will surely motivate you to save enough money.


#12 Personalized beer bottle

This piggy bank shaped like a beer bottle is the best piggy bank for alcohol or beer lovers.

And what’s even cooler is that you can personalize this beer bottle too!

It’s made of glass and there is no option to retrieve the money, other than to break it. Which is quite sad, but also the best way to prevent spending your money on other causes.


#13 Letter piggy bank

This is another cute personalized piggy bank, not just for travelers, but for anyone who is trying to save some money. A wooden box in the shape of a letter (for example, your initial).

To get your money out, you will need a screwdriver to take out the glass frame. This makes it a great reusable piggy bank, yet not one where you can easily take your money out. Because getting a screwdriver is quite a step. So at least you will think twice before using your saved money for something other than travel.


#14 Globe-shaped piggy bank

Alright, so technically this is a piggy bank for kids. Though, personally, I consider it one of the best piggy banks for travelers. I mean, travelers love world maps, and this is a piggy bank in the shape of the world!

I don’t think it gets any better than that.

The cap at the bottom allows you to retrieve money without the need to break the globe, so you can reuse it to save for your next trip, and the one after that.


#15 Blue vacation jar

Jar with text "vacation fund"
Vacation fund

I would argue that this is one of the cutest money jars for travelers. Or for anyone who loves a vacation, really.

It’s a ceramic jar of about 3 x 5 x 6 inches ( 7.6 x 12.7 x 15.2 cm), so not the biggest jar out there. But the lid is made from cork and can be removed super easily, so you can deposit some money in your bank if the jar ever gets too full. This lid also means that you don’t have to break your pretty jar each time you want to use up your saved money.


#16 Money jar for beach lovers

Jar with text "beach fund"

Are you trying to save for your next beach vacation?

Then this beach fund is the perfect jar for you! It’s made from ceramics and comes with a ceramic lid to easily access your money.


#17 Wooden heart-shaped money box

Heart-shaped money box

Are you looking for cute and perhaps romantic piggy banks for travelers?

Then this money box in the shape of a heart is perfect!

Just like the letter money box (#13), you will need a screwdriver to get the money out, which makes this a great piggy bank for people who are easily tempted to take money out of their piggy bank for other purposes.


Small budget piggy banks for travelers

#18 Ceramic suitcase money box

This ceramic suitcase with a painting of the map of the world is another one of the great piggy banks for travelers.

Because remember what I said about travelers and maps? It’s a match made in heaven.

The suitcase only measures 4.9 x 3.6 x 2.2 inches ( about 12.5 x 9.5 x 5.5 cm), so it’s quite a small money box. But it is great to store your loose change.


#19 England telephone booth piggy bank

This is one of the best travel-themed piggy banks for people who are obsessed with the UK!

A typical red telephone booth from the UK, so you can save money in a complete English style.


#20 Travel trailer money collector

This is one of the best travel-themed piggy banks for people who love to travel by RV, a travel fund in the shape of a trailer camper!

Whether they are saving to buy their own camper or whether they are saving for their next camper trip, this cool money box will surely motivate them to save all they’ve got. It’s made of polystone, so it feels and looks like a stone piggy bank.

There is a rubber plug at the bottom to get money out, though you may need to break the trailer if you can’t get it all out. But I guess that’s the whole point of a piggy bank.


#21 Money box for ocean lovers

two black money boxes
Black money box

This black wooden money box is perfect for ocean lovers! It comes with a two-sided background frame, though the one with the turtle would be best for someone who is saving for their next trip to the ocean.

The box measures 7 x 7 x 2 inches ( 17.7 x 17.8 x 5 cm) and opens the same way as most boxes on this list.

For travel-themed piggy banks with more background options, check out the next gift.


#22 Money box with six different backgrounds

It’s made from metal and comes with a plastic cap on the bottom to take your money out if you need to. That way your cute owl can be reused.


#24 Wooden money box

Then this elegant wooden box is perfect. It shows that a cute travel fund box doesn’t need to be expensive. You can save that money for traveling ;).

As with most boxes on this list, the back frame is removable to access money.


#25 Vacation fund
