Do you ever go on holiday, get there and do something completely wrong the whole time, only for someone to tell you what they did when you get back. When you get back!?!?! It’s always the way that people tell you the information that you could really have benefited from, when you can no longer benefit from it. So, that’s why we’re here writing this article. We think we’ve got a few killer tips for you to use on your next holiday, no matter where you’re going, or when you’re going on holiday. Having a nice little break away is one thing, but having a break away when you actually do things in the best way possible is even better. So, here are our top travel tips that we think you need to know before you go away!
Money, money and more money. That’s all we seem to think about when we think about travelling, so how do you think you’re going to make your money situation better? Well, the first thing we would advise that you do is read this guide to travel cards. It’ll tell you all about how to use a travel credit card, and why you should use one. For one, it keeps all of your money in one safe place, rather than having loose cash roaming around. If you go on a longer holiday, there’s no doubt that you’ll have too much money floating around that you can’t afford to lose. Plus, you’ll generally find that most countries you could visit now take credit cards, and you’re a lot better off for using one. The exchange rate is just so much better. As for the money you’re going to spend, try and take as minimal as possible to ensure that you’re not overspending. Plan, plan, and do some more planning to make sure you’re saving as much as possible on your trip!
There are some travelling hacks that you should probably know, and the first is that you should never book through a tour operator. They’re charging hundreds more than if you were to go independant. You can still get that all important all inclusive, you just won’t have it as a package! You should also look for holiday vouchers wherever possible. There’s actually so many of them floating about that you might not realise! Another travel hack is to make sure you’re booking your flights last minute. Prices take a sharp drop, and you could save a ton of money if you’re willing to take the risk!
Book Before You Go
If you’re a go out and do something kind of person, then this is going to appeal to you. If you book the things that you want to do whilst you’re there before you go, you’ll save so much money! Using sites such as Tripadvisor is a good place to start. You should also get yourself an edition of the Lonely Planet travel guide. There are country specific ones that will give you money hacks, and show you the best things you can do there!
