Pick up a suitable Destination

It’s all probably from great photos that have become viral on social networks, from the staging of a movie or from the irresistible story of a friend’s last trip abroad. Tour plans are mostly triggered by external factors.

With little preparation and effort, a personalised travel planner can overcome 90% of the difficulties they face during a trip. Here are some handy tips to plan your trip and prepare for a rainy day.

Things to keep in mind before selecting a destination :
  • There is nothing to say when a traveler wants to visit beaches, mountains or forests. However, choosing the right destination based on the season is a key factor in planning a successful trip.
  • Check the best time to visit all the destinations. Usually, the ideal season to visit the beaches and mountains is completely different.
  • Consider the cost factor when choosing a destination. Some places are more comfortable on a luxury budget than others. If you’re heading to a luxury destination in the off-season (a few weeks before or after the official “high season”), you’ll get good discounts on hotels and flights.
  • The safety of travellers is a priority concern that people should tackle before starting their journey (especially women traveling alone).
  • Easy accessibility or lack of accessibility is also a factor that can influence whether a destination is visited or not. Generally, popular destinations offer many daily flights, trains and good highway infrastructure to support the flow of tourists.

Decide the duration of your trip

There is a fine line between getting bored and enjoying every moment at a destination. However, no destination has a predefined ideal duration, it often depends on the plan and purpose of the visit. Some travellers like to experience new places whereas some travelers prefer taking it slow by witnessing and enjoying the subtle nuances of places they visit.Either ways the ideal duration of a trip is relative to each individual traveller so compare not 🙂 

Booking flight, train or bus tickets

Most trips get canned at the last minute as travellers (esp. male) do not pay heed to logistics! After the ideation is complete, ensure you keep a check on flight, train, bus tickets well in advance to save cost. Since flight and train tickets are subject to availability and variable cost, getting the bookings done a few weeks in advance will help you avoid additional costs on your initial budget. 

Important things to note before booking a ticket

Only book the cheaper non-refundable flight or train tickets if you are absolutely certain of your vacation plans. Otherwise, it is advisable to book refundable tickets if booking well-in-advance. Flight prices fluctuate a lot, keep a track on flight prices by using Google Flights Tracker.

Expect a surge in the prices of flights and accommodations if you are booking tickets for a vacation that falls during the peak season of that particular destination.

Use credit cards that give frequent flyer miles and points on every rupee spent on booking flights and hotels to earn great rewards and cash-backs.

Plan the day-wise activities and course of action

It always sounds fascinating and adventurous when tour plans are made on a sudden impulse . However, the downside of going on such trips is that there could be an opportunity loss in terms of local events or a meet and greet or time-bound adventure activities! Avoid this by talking to a travel planner and also dong a bit of research by yourself
