 If you can’t wait to plan your next vacation, Condo Travel Club is here to help! Your next trip is only a few clicks away. While every traveler has their own idea of the perfect vacation, there are a few key elements that are sure to help you plan the perfect getaway. Read our tips for planning your next vacation here and learn how to get the most out of your next trip. 

 

Tip #1: Choose the right destination. 

The first step to planning your perfect vacation is to choose the right destination. Start by thinking about the day-to-day of your trip. Are you planning to spend your vacation by the pool with your favorite drink, or are you looking for an exciting sightseeing adventure? An all-inclusive cruise or resort might be the perfect option for you if you are looking to relax and unwind. If you’re looking for a more lively adventure, you may choose a hotel with close access to top stores and restaurants. Your ideal vacation is unique to you; begin by thinking about how you would like to spend your trip, and you are sure to end up choosing a fantastic destination.

 

Tip #2: Travel lightly - and efficiently. 

When most travelers pack their bags for vacation, they focus on fitting as much as they can into their suitcases! Instead, cut down by packing more intentionally; try carefully selecting only the items you want or need most on your trip. Find out which items will be readily available at your destination so that you don’t need to pack them.  By carefully planning what you will need to bring with you, you can spend less time being weighed down by luggage - and more time relaxing! 

 

Tip #3: Avoid over-scheduling your vacation. 

Having a travel itinerary can be great, but be sure not to over-schedule your vacation. Trying to fit too many pre-planned activities or excursions into your trip can leave you feeling rushed rather than relaxed. It is important to build downtime into your travel schedule so that you can make the most of your destination. Next time you travel, try leaving yourself a little extra free time to explore everything that your destination has to offer at your own pace. You may find that you enjoy your vacation more when you aren’t racing to cross out the items on your list! 

 

Tip #4:  Research your destination - even the small details! 

When it comes to planning the perfect vacation, the most important tip is to do your research and plan ahead. Researching small details ahead of time can save you time in the long run and make your vacation more enjoyable. For example, knowing where to grab the best cup of coffee or brunch near your hotel can really come in handy in a pinch! When in doubt, your Condo Travel Club concierge can help you decide what you would like to explore at your destination. 

 

Tip #5: Timing is Everything 

When it comes to planning the perfect vacation, timing is everything! Consider factors like the weather and season to ensure you don’t miss any precious vacation time due to poor conditions. Most travelers are familiar with the feeling that comes at the end of a vacation when you wish you could stay for just a bit longer. Whether you’re packing a lot of activities into your trip or just getting away to relax and unwind, make sure that you choose the best time of year at your destination!
