Decide on travel dates – While this may seem obvious, it’s important to lock down a specific date and time to ensure that the trip fits perfectly into the traveler’s schedule. This removes a lot of unnecessary stress.
Keep everything together – Purchasing plane tickets, accommodations, and other activities all at once may seem pricey, but the truth is that it provides structure to the vacation and makes planning the perfect trip that much easier.
Pack what’s needed – Many travelers make the mistake of over-packing, which can lead to extra baggage fees at airports or take up extra space on road trips. Only bring what’s needed and try to plan outfits for the entire trip, if possible.
Triple check – Be sure to have wallets, keys, laptops, and any other necessities all packed and ready to go before travel. Finding out a crucial item to a trip was left behind can derail even the best vacations.
