CONTRIBUTED POST | Fancy Jetting Off To Somewhere Sunny? Here’s How To Plan The Most Incredible Trip!

Has the cold winter weather given you a craving for a trip to somewhere wonderfully warm and sunny? There’s something about the cold weather that makes us more prone to feeling blue. So, if you’ve got the time, and can afford to jet off abroad, getting away could be a great idea. Whether it’s for a few days or a few weeks, it doesn’t matter - all that matters is that you’re getting a much-needed break from the grind of daily life. 

To ensure that you make the most of your time away, below are a few tips, that should help you to plan the most incredible trip. (These are all things that I like to do before jetting off abroad.)

The first step when planning a trip to anywhere should always be working out how much you have to spend. Even if you’ve got thousands saved in the bank, that doesn’t matter. You don’t want to overspend on your trip, so it’s important to establish a budget before you go. Sit down and work out how much you want to/can spend on your trip. Then, once you’ve got a figure to work with, you can start planning. 

Once you know the size of your budget, the next step is to select the perfect travel destination. Is there somewhere that you’ve been dreaming of visiting or are you open to anywhere? Have a look online to get some ideas of different places, and then take the time to do some research into your favourite ones. Say, for instance, you’ve decided that you’d like to visit Spain but are stuck between Barcelona and Madrid. Read up on both destinations to get an idea of what each place offers. There are lots of travel sites offering information and advice, for instance, you can read about Madrid on The Crazy Tourist website.

After you’ve settled on a destination for your trip, the next step is to book your plane tickets and transfers. To get the best price on your plane tickets, take the time to compare prices online. When it comes to booking your transfers, take the time to decide whether you want to book private or shared transfers. If you want to make the most of your trip, private transfers are probably a better option, as you’ll get to your accommodation more quickly.

Last but not least, take the time to plan out your trip itinerary. Once you’ve booked your flights and accommodation, you can then start planning out what you want to do while you’re there. From the sights that you’re desperate to see to the places that you would like to eat at, take the time to plan out as much of your trip as possible. This will allow you to make the most of your time while you’re there, as everything will already be planned out. If the winter weather is getting your down, now is the perfect time to plan a trip away. Take note of tips above, and you can organise the most incredible trip.

  1. I would love to jet off to someone where amazing, just get away from the dull moment nglish weather.

    1. Me too! I really need some sunshine right now! x

  2. I always book my holidays separately rather than going through a travel agent. It can be a complicated process though so these tips are great for those that haven't done it before

    1. I definitely find it easier to book through an agent or as a travel week myself x
