Top ways to get the most out of your next vacation
By Simon Duncan on July 20, 2018
When was the last time you took a vacation and returned home feeling really refreshed? Chances are, while your vacation was great, you probably also dealt with plenty of stress and exhaustion along the way. While travel looks glamorous on Instagram, the reality is it can sometimes be more appealing to stay home compared to hours cramped in economy seats, long lines at customs, and jetlag.
Here are some top ways you can get the most out of your next vacation:
This doesn’t mean you need to plan every aspect of your trip or sort out a detailed itinerary. Instead, you simply need to consider what types of things you’d like to do, where the best places are to stay, and which tourist activities you need to book in advance.
By planning ahead, you can ensure that you don’t miss out on the things you really want to do, and you don’t overbook yourself, which can just make your trip exhausting.
Use a travel agent
It may seem like travel agents are a thing of the past, but this can be a great way to ensure you have an amazing vacation without having to do all the planning yourself. Travel agents are super experienced travellers, and can let you know the best way to fly into a destination, key things not to miss, and any visas or vaccinations you’ll need to get. While you may assume that a travel agent will be expensive, they make their commission through the airlines, hotels, and other wholesalers. Many are happy to price-match anything you find online, and they’re a great backup if anything goes wrong while you’re overseas.
Make it a cruise
If you’re hoping to get the most out of your next vacation and you want to return feeling well-rested while still seeing some incredible destinations, go on a luxury cruise holiday. Cruising almost guarantees that you’ll have an incredible vacation. Not only is it cost-effective since you’re paying for most of your trip when you pay for the cruise fare, but you won’t need to worry about getting yourself to and from each destination- instead, you can relax onboard and enjoy the facilities.
