Shop around for the best deal. Often, a shift in a day or two from your departure or return can amount to a significant savings of several hundred dollars in your transportation cost. Many websites can check this automatically for you. As a general rule, if you can avoid travelling on Fridays or Sundays, you will save a pile of money.
If your cellphone will not cover long distance from the place you intend to travel to, it might be a smart idea to invest in a phone card before leaving. A phone card will make calls much less expensive and ensure that you don’t accidentally make any expensive long distance calls.
If you don’t want to be around children when you are on vacation new options are becoming available for you! Cruise lines are increasingly offering “adults-only” cruises, which offer weary parents and childless couples the ability to vacation without the little ones. These trips are becoming popular for cruise lines and are expected to be seen more often in other venues as well.
If you tend to travel a lot, a great thing to do is buy a postcard from every new location. Collect your postcards in a photo album (they are the same size as the average photograph) and write the dates on the back when you went there. Doing this will make your trip memorable and give you some nice pictures to look back on.
If you have questions about the hotel, the best time to call is around midnight. The people working the desk most likely aren’t busy and will be able to give you their full attention. If you call during the day, most likely they’ve got people there in person and others calling on the phone to distract them.
You should always stay up to date about the events that are going on in your travel destinations. If extreme circumstances, dangerous events, or natural disasters are going on in the intended travel destination, you should have prior knowledge. This will allow you to make an educated decision on whether you should travel or not.
To avoid paying high airport prices for snacks and food, make sure to pack your own bag of treats before you leave home. Pretzels, crackers, trail mix and dried fruit, are all great airplane snack ideas. If you bring your own, you won’t have to pay an arm and a leg for snacks at the airport or on board the plane.
If you take the time now to prepare for your next trip, you can save yourself a lot of trouble and headaches that you may be accustomed to. Putting these tips and suggestions to good use will allow you to have a wonderful time traveling without thinking about whether or not you left the stove on.
