At Classic Limo, we love taking our clients to the airport for the important trips in their lives. As an airport service, we have heard about some awesome travel over the years. If you have the travel bug, it may be time to plan your next big vacation. Here, we go through the steps to planning your next big trip.
Step One: Decide where you want to go
This may seem like the simplest step, but it also the most important. When choosing where you want to go, think about whether you want to go somewhere internationally or nationally. What climate do you want to experience? What landmarks, cultures, and historical events interest you? Once you have narrowed down a basic region, get more specific. Instead of staying “I want to go to Europe,” say, “I want to go to Madrid.” Having a specific destination in mind gives you all you need to plan your next trip.
Step Two: Decide how long you want to go
After you decide where you want to go, you need to decide how long you want to stay there. This will largely be dictated by your schedule and how much time you have for vacation.
Step Three: Look into costs
Now that you know where you are going and how long you will be there, you can start looking into how much it will cost so you can determine exactly how much money you will need to save. Look into the different travel style options. For example, some places, you may be able to backpack and stay in hostels along the way. Also look into the attractions you want to see, as well as the cost of restaurants. Guidebooks are very helpful for planning a budget for your trip, so look into buying a guide.
Step Four: Save money
Now that you know how much money you need to save, you can start saving it. You would be surprised how easy it can be to save money by avoiding small costs. For example, if you buy a latte every day, you are spending over 100 dollars a month on coffee! If you starting making coffee at home and saving the money you usually spend on lattes, you can save almost 1,500 dollars a year! That can easily pay for your next trip. You may also consider signing up for a travel credit card, with which you can earn points towards free flights.
Step Five: Book your flight
Now that you have finally saved up the money you need, it is time book your flight! Be sure to shop around to make sure you are getting the best deal on your flight.
Step Six: Book your accommodations
Next, you will want to figure out where you are staying for your trip. If you know how long you will be traveling and exactly where you will be, it is a good idea to go ahead and book your hotel or hostel in advance.
Step Seven: Plan your itinerary
Nothing will make you more excited for your trip than planning what you are going to do during it! Check out the major attractions your destination has to offer, and determine whether you need to make any reservations to accommodate them.
Step Eight: Let your credit card companies know you will be traveling
This is a good idea regardless of the length of your trip. There is nothing worse than having a frozen credit card when you are trying to enjoy your big vacation.
