How to Plan the Ideal Trip

Posted on October 28, 2017 at 2:48 pm

Planning a holiday or travelling adventure is no easy task. There are so many options and possibilities to think about – what could go wrong? Where should you stay? Will there be lots to do? What if you get lost and you’re on your own?

One of the key things to remember is not to panic. Many of the situations you think about simply aren’t going to happen. One of the best ways to be a successful traveller and to enjoy your journey is not to think about it too much.

That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t plan ahead. This is especially important in destinations that are likely to be busy because you might struggle to find accommodation. Plan, without panicking yourself.

Make sure you do your research about your destination. Have an understanding of what it will be like and how easy it will be to travel there. Make lists of things to do and plan your days as you go along.

Choosing a Winter Break

Posted on August 26, 2017 at 1:51 pm

The summer is almost over and if you haven’t had a summer holiday this year, you will probably not have much time left before the children are back at school. One other option is to consider a winter break. This gives everyone in the family the opportunity to try something new and enjoy a different type of holiday.

There are many winter holiday destinations where you can try activities like skiing and snowboarding. Make sure you get some professional tuition if you don’t know how to ski – it can end up being a very costly holiday if somebody has to go into hospital with a broken leg! You may also want to take some lessons before you go away on holiday.

Make sure you have the right insurance. Standard insurance policies won’t usually cover you for adventurous winter holiday activities. You need to be fully covered before you go away.

Travelling will often be trouble free and many holidaymakers enjoy wonderful breaks without having to worry about anything. Sometimes, vacations can be less than ideal though as you may get ill, be the victim of a crime or find that your accommodation is less than desirable. Here are some of the options if you run into trouble:

• Talk to a local. They can give you advice like where to find the nearest police station or who you should contact. They may also be able to lend you a phone. • Contact the travel police. Lots of destinations that have lots of tourists will have dedicated travel police to help you with any difficulties.

• Have a conversation with staff. If you find problems with your accommodation, speak to the staff seriously yet reasonably. Often they will be able to help you out and find a solution for you, like moving you to a different room or building.

Finding Decent Budget Accommodation

Posted on February 24, 2017 at 5:09 pm

Decent and budget aren’t two words that have to be mutually exclusive. It is perfectly possible to find cheap accommodation that is also good quality. Once you know the right ways to search, it will help you to find the best deals that won’t leave your pocket empty but that also won’t leave you covered in bites from bed bugs!

Always check the facilities before you book. If you’re booking on the internet, this should be fairly easy. Use a reputable booking website to make your booking and to check the room has all the facilities you want. Check the photographs but do bear in mind that they might be out of date.

Also check reviews from other travellers carefully. If there is anything that doesn’t quite ring true from the hotel, guesthouse or hostel description, you can count on other guests to point it out. You should also be able to filter reviews to find ones covering topics that matter to you, such as cleanliness or safety.
