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.

What to do if you Run into Trouble Abroad

Posted on August 1, 2017 at 11:50 am

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.

Saving For Travelling

Posted on January 23, 2016 at 4:56 pm

When you’ve decided it’s time to go on a travelling trip, the only other thing you need to consider is money. Firstly you need to do your homework and work out how much you need to save. The country or countries you plan to visit will ultimately decide the cost. Thailand is an extremely popular country for travellers, and it’s considerably cheaper than say Australia or America.

Once you know how much you need, save £1000 pound more, just to be safe. You’ll need to create a plan of how much money you need to save by when. You may need to cut down costs on commuting to work, food and bills in the meantime. A year is a long time, and it’s always best to save as much as you possibly can first. It’s not just for the time away, it will also come in handy when you return, and you’re ready for work again!

Traffic news

Posted on October 31, 2015 at 12:09 am

Some people like to travel, others find it boring, nerve-racking and stressful. After carrying out a survey with drivers we found that the worse thing about driving was traffic. Traffic can cause chaos on the roads and often contributes to accidents.

When planning a journey, have a look at the usual traffic for that time of day. Google maps will show you travel time and travel time in current traffic conditions. Obviously traffic can vary from one day to the next but you may find a particular time or times of the day to avoid.

Many of the slightly more expensive sat navs have traffic updates built in to them, so as you are driving they will update your route according to the traffic ahead. This can save precious time especially if there is a long delay ahead of you. Other sat navs will not automatically re-route you but will advise you of traffic ahead, allowing you time to take a diversion.
