The three golden tips to help you plan your trip

The three golden tips to help you plan your trip

Travel planning can be the least exciting part about travelling. But having a plan never went to waste, and in most instances, a travel plan will be your best friend. Here in this article, you will find important tips for the next time you travel.

The Important Decisions

Decide on the destination unless you’re looking to backpack through a particular place. Even backpacking requires you to decide on a start point, and it is good to have an end point in mind as well. Thereby giving you the freedom to backpack from point A to point B through whatever place in between. But if you’re going for just a weekend getaway or a vacation then decide on a location and see if all your mates also want to go to the same location.

Secondly, decide on the means of transport. This is very important because in case you want to go by flight or train, then bookings need to be sorted out at least a week before. But if you’re going to use someone’s car then calculate the cost of fuel and decide how the split is going to be.

The third important decision is to decide where you will be staying once you reach your destination. Are you going to camp outside or crash at a friend’s place or do you need to book a resort or a motel room? Make sure to have a communication group on WhatsApp or other social media to make these important decisions as a group.

The Attractions

Dig deeper and understand the heart of the location that you’ve chosen. Explore places that the locals love and not just places that are branded really well. Visit places and restaurants that capture the essence of the city. Try out your hand at all the glitz and glamour that city or location has to offer. What we are trying to say is; for example you have planned a weekend getaway to Las Vegas, but the entire time you’re there, you don’t visit one casino. So read blogs by famous travellers and other blogs on what the location that you’re visiting has to offer. Make the most out of your trip and don’t just ‘Netflix and Chill’, because you can do that at home itself.

Smart and not a lot

Pack smart and light; not so much that you end up carrying two luggage bags for a weekend trip. Be light when you pack, just what you think would be enough to relax. If you’re specifically going to a location that requires you to have a lot of options, then go for variety, but even then the benefits of staying light cannot be overstated. Most people come back from vacations having just used a pair of jeans and a couple of t-shirts while they might have packed a lot more. A light bag can be a great asset when you are getting back, and you don’t have to experience the pain of tugging a giant bag across while you walk after two tiresome but extremely fun days at a surreal location.
