Tips for Vacation Travel
by Rob Lewis
The perfect vacation is a very subjective
thing and will depend on how you prefer to travel, your interests,
budget, and how important luxury is to you. In any case, good vacation
tips will eliminate unwanted surprises.
When deciding where to go on your next
vacation, one of the best vacation tips is to think about other
vacations you've been on, and what you enjoyed about them. Some people
like a luxurious getaway type vacation, while others prefer to see rare
sites that are accessible only by roughing it and getting off the beaten
path. In any event, you should examine yourself and your traveling
partners to determine what kind of vacation and vacation activities you
will enjoy. If you go to a vacation hotspot, be prepared to pay premium
rates for everything whether you are in a third world country or not.
The way you travel will depend on the
type of trip you are going to take. For instance, if you are trying to
get a far distance as soon as possible, then a plane flight is most
likely your best option. Sometimes it is more fun to make a road trip
out of it and take a car or RV as your transportation. This method
allows you to make many stops along the way and see various sites that
you would have otherwise not seen. Some vacationers even like to take
the train. I prefer planes and RVs because you are in control of where
you go in an RV, and a plane is just down right fast. A train ride, on
the other hand, is nice if you just want to sit back and watch the
country side pass you by. Keeping the kids entertained on a long trip
can often be a full time job. With a little bit of planning a coloring
book, DVD player, or fun music can help pass the time.
The busiest times to travel are during
the holidays. Not just Christmas and Thanksgiving, but all holidays see
an increase in vacation travel. This makes sense since the majority of
people get more vacation time around the holidays. A smart traveler will
avoid busy travel days during the holidays. Not to say you should stay
home for Christmas, but get a plane flight for off days instead of
Christmas eve. You can also find better rates on travel and hotel
packages if you are a little flexible with your scheduling. There is
also nothing that can ruin a vacation more is sitting in traffic. Avoid
such stresses and travel during the night or on days that you know will
be less crowded.
No matter what kind of vacation you like
or your travel preferences, vacation tips will help you immensely.
Knowing what you are getting for your money and what to expect will help
make sure that your next vacation is everything you thought it could be.
