If you have long dreamed of holidaying abroad then this might just be the year to do it. You may as well take the plunge and go for it, after all there is no time like the present! If you keep postponing then it is likely that you will never go. If you are worried or nervous about travelling abroad then our travel tips may be useful…
Booking your trip
First and foremost you need to decide on where you want to go! Make a list of your top three locations and look up the prices of airline tickets. Look at which location seems the most likely to fall in line with your budget – there’s no need to break the bank just to go on holiday! You can also check budget airline prices – see if there are seasonal offers available and get in touch with your travel agent to see if they can get you discounted rates. Once you have your travel arrangements sorted you will need to find a place to stay. While you are likely to find a cheap hotel – they may actually be in poor condition. Instead consider looking at a home stay while you travel. Today, there are many holiday property management sites where people advertise their homes and apartments for rent provide a special assistance of concierge.
These privately owned homes and rooms may actually be much nicer to stay in and since these holiday property management in Sydney often have to meet site standards and have reviews you should be able to find something lovely within your budget!
The next thing to do is to get packing. You will want to pack light – if you are flying budget you may have a low luggage allowance, either way you do not want to lug your whole wardrobe along with you. Check on the weather in the area and pack appropriately. Pack lightweight fabrics if you are flying somewhere sunny but also pack a sweater – the nights can get chilly! Pack sunblock, hats and a favourite book for those moments when you just want to sit back and relax!
Finally, you may not always be able to get your hands on the same creature comforts abroad – this also applies to hygiene products and medicines. Make sure you fill your prescriptions before you leave and that you take along some paracetamol and vitamins with you – you do not want to fall sick while on holiday. Also, be careful of the water you drink – make sure that it is boiled or stick to bottled water to avoid falling sick.
